Victory for Environment Campaign led by Lib Dem Councillor


Environmental campaigners are celebrating a victory on the borders of Langney as Wealden Council planning committee turned down a development on the Friday Street Farm.

The campaign to protect the wildlife and plant life around the Pevensey Levels Site of Special Scientific Interest and preserve the green belt was led by Langney Councillor Alan Shuttleworth supported by over 200 emails from residents to planning members.

As Cllr Shuttleworth said, “as well as the strong environmental case the existing problems with flooding and pumping stations were compelling arguments. This is a victory for the environment, and for local democracy."
