“The Council has been trying too hard to grant permission so that it can sell The Play Meadow for what amounts to inappropriate development. It is now difficult for the Council to avoid the fact that a substantial building in a conservation area, blocking clear views over the South Downs, would substantially harm that conservation area. The Council should take stock, think hard about the environmental harm that such development would do, and act in the interests of the local community by dedicating The Play Meadow for public use as open space.”
