THE POWERFUL FEW versus THE POWERLESS PUBLIC
But the break has made me think...I think 'they' are too powerful - 'they' being the unholy alliance primarily between West Sussex County Council (WSCC) and 'Partners'; Horsham District Council/Crawley Borough Council (HDC/WSCC), SE Regional Assembly (SEERA), and English Partnerships (EP) .
I fear that we will not only lose Ifield Brook Meadows, but a lot more besides. The Holmbush Site (Browns Landfill) and the Ifield Site (Ifield Golf Club) used to be seen as either/or, alternative, sites for housing development to the "West of Crawley" - but, as I see it, that's no longer the case.
Methinks now that both will sites will together disappear under concrete, tarmac or waste.
This is my nightmare - but I intend to continue to do everything in my power (which is not enough) to ensure that this nightmare does not become a reality.
It appears that those who have 'signed up to the system' - a system which is a democratic obscenity - themselves become undemocratic and obscene.
