2020 - Herstmonceux in Sussex is not what it used to be. Villagers are being forced to rent in towns, rather than being able to live where they were brought up - at reasonable prices. In modern England, councils are operating against the interests of young families. Rents for new builds in Herstmonceux are exorbitant. The rich get richer and the poor, poorer - and the climate hotter.

BROWN CLIFFS ABOMINATION No1 - Unlike Dover, with their beautiful white cliffs, in Wealden they like the colour brown so much they gave planning permission to build this artificial edifice in the country - taking with it the natural beauty of the countryside for walkers - and - or so it seems, polluting the watercourse downstream. They call the mini-estate Woodlands View, including Elm Close, Hawthorn Lane and Oak Way.





Just about all of the 70 houses proposed for build on the field adjacent to Lime Cross, will flush pesticides downhill into Lime Pond (centre lower), so killing the herons, ducks, fish, frogs and newts. Anyone party to the killing of these animals by poisoning, is liable to imprisonment. We'd imagine remedial works would involved demolition of the houses, by way of a restoration order. So why go there? There are dozens of other locations to build, far more suitable and where the land is cheaper. Why destroy our heritage and habitats?





AMBERSTONE - You can't build houses at this scale and then host COP26 with clean hands. We are hypocrites.


Wealden is piling on the climate change pressure, rather than scaling down to try and achieve equilibrium with nature. The sad thing is that the public don't understand that they are being led by the nose into a cauldron of desertification and wildfires - that because what we build does not have an immediate effect on our doorstep - we think it is fine to chew up the countryside, so that banks and building societies can give commercial mortgages to landlords - who are collectively the non-productive leaches on society. For sure we are headed Up Shit Creek Without a Paddle.
