Compulsory read for council members

May I congratulate Richard Williamson on his wonderfully evocative article in last week’s Observer, ‘Hint of magic in sceptred isle walked by Keats’.

In a few hundred words he has captured what is so important to so many of us in retaining Whitehouse Farm as it is.

I believe this article should be prescribed reading for all Chichester District Council’s elected members and officers who are now involved in reviewing and amending the draft local plan following the closure of the public consultation period.
