Residents of the village on the Surrey/Sussex border have been fighting off developers on all fronts in recent years, as traffic continues to build up along the main Horsham to Guildford Road. There have been a number of serious accidents in the village centre on the Loxwood Road – and on the A281 which has seen HGV movements increase exponentially in recent years.
