About us

This blog is all about the residents of Hassocks and Hurstpierpoint trying to Protect Ham Fields. Ham Fields is the ancient name of the green space which remains between Hassocks and Hurstpierpoint, the so called Strategic Gap, also referred to as land to the west of London Road, Hassocks.

Local Gap Saved

The Secretary of State for Planning has made his decision on the three local applications which were called in.

  • 81 houses at College Lane, Hurstpierpoint – REFUSED
  • 120 houses and a care home at Sayers Common – REFUSED
  • 50 Ac of parkland and woodland, and 157 houses at Little Park and Highfield Drive (as the Neighbourhood Plan) - ACCEPTED
You can read more about these applications here.

This should be good news for us as the College Lane decision specifically discusses the need to protect the Strategic Local Gap.

I am anticipating that Gleeson will appeal the decision to refuse their application so we may need to start campaigning again.
