SUICIDE JUNCTION 2021 - Is this one of the most dangerous junctions in Sussex? That is the view of many local residents who objected most strongly to the proposal that may see up to 70 more houses access an A road that is itself substandard and overloaded. It is a pothole nightmare, another issue of concern to people that are forced to drive along this road.

 

 

 

Many villagers believe that the access to Lime Cross field on the A271 is an accident waiting to happen. This is because of the substandard visibility splay and the position near the brow of a hill.

 

The proposal by Latimer & Clarion Group, who between them paid 3.5 million pounds for a field that changed hands for 30,000 pounds when Tim Watson purchased it. The incredible uplift in price is due to the grant of permission to to build up to 70 houses outside the Local Plan delineation, that will feed onto this narrow road, where congestion in the village already is a problem with frequent snarls and delays in the High Street.

At best this is poor planning, at worst it could lead to prosecution of Wealden and East Sussex councils under the Corporate Slaughter and Homicide Act 2007.

 

 

Southern Water Company

 

ACCESSORIES & ABETTORS - It is alleged that Southern Water conspired with Latimer Developments to undermine the planning process. It remains to be seen if the construction of this pumping station was begun despite Conditions imposed by Wealden District Council, that such development should not begin before other Conditions had been completed. If so this could be a serious abuse of process, maybe even fraud. Another issue is the displacement of badgers by the bulldozers of this company, an allegation that they deny so far.
