Horley Master Plan

The Town Council has submitted formal objections to the Borough Council regarding the Local Plan Modifications. The comments largely focus on three key areas:

Flooding: remapping of Horleys flood plain represents change to the Local Plan since the Public Inquiry in January 2001. For this reason, the Town Council re-employed the services of their consultant hydrologist from Black & Veatch. His report maintains that:

Infrastructure: the Town Council objects to the reduction in the area of land set aside for infrastructure, namely, land for schools, neighbourhood centres and recreation.

Recreation: the Town Council considers that the Local Plan must identify a site for a new leisure centre. The Bonehurst Road site is identified as the most suitable, being both accessible and also large enough to accommodate other formal recreation facilities. This site is also considered more suitable than Wilgers Farm for the Town Park.

Detailed comments are available on the attached word document.
