MP slams new ‘inappropriate’ housing plans

Plans for 100 homes on the edge of the South Downs National Park have been submitted for approval.

The Argus can exclusively reveal that the development will include 40% affordable housing as well as a playing field. It is set for land on the north-east outskirts of Ovingdean.

If voted through, developers expect the first occupants to move into the homes by the end of 2016.

However, Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown, has spoken out against the plans, calling the area “completely inappropriate” for the development.

He said: “The application will ruin the village feel of Rottingdean, Woodingdean and Ovingdean as well as placing a huge strain on local services and infrastructure such as the local roads, which are already under great pressure.

“The strength of feeling against development at this site was clearly evident at the public meeting I spoke at on this subject, which was attended by hundreds of residents.”

The plans were first put forward by Bristol-based Lightwood Strategic after Brighton and Hove City Council’s future housing plan was thrown out by the government.

Earlier this year, a proposal for 112 new homes on the land was presented to locals. However, after feedback, the developers revised the plans and have presented a new proposal with a reduced 100 homes.

James Sorrentino, director of Lightwood, said: “We genuinely want to create a fantastic scheme that will create a legacy of somewhere really nice to live.

“We have altered the plans and reduced the number of houses to 100 so there is more space for planting and landscaping. There is now a lot more space and we think it is very much in keeping with the surroundings.”

The new plans, which have been exclusively revealed to The Argus, include 100 homes in fields bordered by Falmer Road, The Vale and Ovingdean Road.

The properties, which vary in shape and size, include 40% affordable housing. All the properties have parking spaces and there is also a central playing field surrounded by trees.

The only access road is from Ovingdean Road, which splits off into five streets once on the estate.

There will also be paths linking the estate to Falmer Road and Ovingdean Road.

Mr Sorrentino added that if the plans went through the council by the end of the year, they could start work on the site by mid 2015. He said it would then be a further 18 months before the first occupants could move in.

However, Mr Kirby has urged the council to look at brownfield sites for their housing needs.

He added: “I would encourage all constituents who share my concerns to contact the council setting out their reasons for objection. Together we will fight this application all the way.”

Georgia Wrighton, Sussex director of Campaign to Protect Rural England, said they would be filing an official objection to the plans.

She said: “While the land may not actually be in the National Park it starts just over the road. The only reason the land was not made part of the National Park was because it was considered part of the school’s playing field.

“We think the development would ruin the surroundings, which back on to the National Park and we will be registering our objections. The area is also rich in chalk grassland and is home to red thistle.”

No, James.

You genuinely want to ruin somewhere which is 200 miles from where you live AND make a shedload of money in the process.

Kirby desperate for votes. We need houses and we are at the stage locally where just building on brownfield sites is still not enough. I assume the population is growing in Rottingdean, Woodingdean and Ovingdean so where should these people live?

You are correct except that the roads leading to that locations are already jammed in the morning and afternoon, the sewage system is already overloaded and often overflows into the sea and that the local drains struggle to cope now.

But is the increase in the population of those three areas due to the residents or to the influx of outsiders?

THAT was behind my question.

Simon 'Nimby' Kirby again! He is opposed to any development in 'his area' even a windfarm 12 miles out at sea because it will spoil his views....presumably though he'd be happy to have fracking in his constituency if there was shale gas there, as his beloved Tories are rather enthusiastically promoting it, even trying to bribe communities to accept it. Pathetic Kirby!

So people aren't allowed to protect their area from unwanted intrusion?

Funny, but you seem to think the people of Gaza have that right.

Saltdean Resident says...

The problem i see is that because the government moved the goal posts on planning applications of this sort, the developers are overlooking the brownfield sites for these green fringes as a green field is easier and cheaper to develop, therefore more profit. If we exhausted the brownfield sites first then i think there is a case to look at green field sites if done sympathetically to fit in with what is already there. These proposed developments are being put through because the government made it easier for developers and harder for councils and the people to knock them back, while brown field sites will sit idle until the green fringes is all swallowed up.

Yes it is true that you gave no indication of your lifestyle, however, if a person is cultured it does not necessarily mean they are part of an elite; it could mean that they have been trained in some way, or developed an ability, for example playing the violin (or guitar or bass) So you see stevo this is what happens when someone when someone, ie you, tries to appear cleverer than they are; unfortunately they make themselves look stupid!

Well you're obviously a cultured chap stevo I just thought you might have played the violin......you didn't think I meant any other sort of fiddler?
I gave no indication of my lifestyle, and violins aren't the preserve of the elite. Equally, I hadn't even mentioned that I am musical.

I didn't claim that it wasn't.

On being told by me that I am musical, you told us that you'd already assumed (ie before being told that I play instruments) that I played the fiddle despite not knowing if I actually played anything.

Your pathetic attempt to explain how you had reached that assumption proved yet again that you base so many of your claims about me ( a person of whom you know nothing) on your ignorance and bigotry.

" So you see stevo this is what happens when someone when someone, ie you, tries to appear cleverer than they are"

I'm really interested to learn how someone can 'try' to appear cleverer than they are.

Your explanation had better be good, because I love pointing out how stupid you are.

Over to you!

"Er, no stevo, my remark about you being a fiddler came after you had offered the information about guitar and bass, a full 15 minutes later in fact......check it out pal it's there for everyone to see!"

I did, actually.

Here's what I found.

At 3.04, I stated that I played guitar and bass in answer to a question regarding the banjo.

At 3.19 you quoted that fact, and stated:

"Really? I'd have had you down as more of a fiddler....."

So you told us that before you knew what I played, you had already decided I played a violin, despite not knowing whether or not I played anything.

See what I mean? You had invented something about me.

The thing is, you knew you had, and now your lie about not doing so is here for all to see.

So, we can now state with proof that you're a lying, ignorant bigot.

You must be so proud.
