Bethwines Appeal Response

The most recent appeal for Bethwines Farm is for Change of use of the land (in perpetuity) from agriculture to natural grass and wetlands for nitrate offsetting. This application was received by Chichester District Council, but because the application does not require any work to be carried out on the land, the District Council did not consider it a valid application. This decision is being appealed by the applicant.
