IMPORTANCE OF LINKS WITH THE COUNTRYSIDE

The East Grinstead Neighbourhood Plan is out for comment, and whilst in policy EG14 we are pleased to see that East Court will be protected from development, we are uneasy that the estate could become encircled if housing were at some time allowed on the eastern border. Such loss of connectivity with the wider countryside would isolate the flora and fauna, inevitably leading to a decline in biodiversity.

Accordingly we have made a submission to EG Town Council that, for the avoidance of doubt, EG14 should be reworded to safeguard the vital link with the wider countryside through the grounds of Fairlight House.
