Developers are planning to build around 45 homes on a beautiful field, known as Meadow Vale, between the Brighton downland villages of Rottingdean, Ovingdean and Woodingdean, bordering the South Downs National Park.
This website has been created to inform local residents of the proposals for this development and to campaign for the preservation of this semi-rural area.
The development will fill in the last green space between the three villages, will result in an urban sprawl, and may open the floodgates to more development.It will significantly increase traffic flow in the immediate and wider area – e.g. Falmer Road, A27/B2123 junction, Woodingdean junction, Rottingdean Junction, Ovingdean coast road junction and Ovingdean village. Already stretched community health and public services will be strained still further. Local residents are overwhelmingly opposed to the plans and many have signed the petition against it.
Planning permission has now been submitted to council - please see homepage. The developer is a London and Surrey based property development company.
