Horsham District Council has taken the decision not to consider Rookwood for development in the Local Plan at this time.

The Council wishes to thank the local community for all its valuable feedback on the ideas put forward so far regarding the site. Having listened to the views expressed, it has decided that the current proposals do not fully reflect the current needs of the local community.

As the owner of the site, the Council wants to build on the initial feedback it has received and now plans to open a further, more in-depth consultation to gather more ideas and better understand the needs of residents and users.
