    It is outrageous Stephen. Thank you for your work, let us know if we can help. I make this point as a complaint in the Sunley homes application.

    Pottery fields has been recognised by government inspectors as very important in maintaining the gap between NUTBOURNE and Southbourne. Also development was stated as being detrimental to the views from the harbour ANOB to the Downs.
    Development of pottery Fields should not take place as is would contravene the rules regarding development in close proximity to the AONB.
    Traffic is already a serious pollution problem along the main coast road and access at the Tesco roundabout becomeing impossible,and dangerous. At the other end the same problem exists at Emsworth.
    Excessive development and overcrowding is already affecting the quality of life for so many residents. Developers greed is killing all the reasons people wanted to live here in the first place. We look to our elected representatives to protect our environment,and care for its residents.
