Correspondent may be confused

THE Hindsland Plan published letter from Andrew Lower (February 17).

I wonder if your correspondent is confused by an investigation of the 1980s when Polegate Council explained the possibility of Wealden providing sports field development in the Brightling Road ground if a portion of that ground was “gifted” to Wealden for some housing in return for that service.

It was not followed up. (I was one of the Polegate resident councillors who took part).

Of more recent times I knew Polegate and Willingdon Councils found the price of the disused University Sports ground was far in excess of what they could afford to retain it as an open space.
