HOUGHTON FOREST

(a short walk from the Whiteways car park at the top of Bury Hill)

 




IS A TREASURED PART OF THE SOUTH DOWNS


Visitors come from far and wide to experience


its tranquility, its grassy walks through the trees,  and its birdsong


YET


DEVELOPERS WANT TO SPREAD 75 'HOLIDAY LODGES'

(some as big as a house) over the prettiest, quietest, part of it all.



Although they (Forest Holidays and their backer Lloyds Bank) claim that the cabins are ecologically friendly and will be 'inserted sensitively among the trees'


THE ACCESS ROADS TO EACH LODGE,

A CENTRAL SHOP  AND ADMIN BUILDING,

AND THE ACCOMPANYING TRAFFIC TO AND FRO FOR OVER 220 PEOPLE ON SITE


WILL DESTROY THE QUALITIES THAT VISITORS, WALKERS, CYCLISTS, AND RIDERS COME TO ENJOY.

and
