LAMBS - Locals Against Mayfield Building Sprawl

LAMBS - Locals Against Mayfield Building Sprawl Cover Photo
LAMBS was formed to fight proposals to build a 10,000 home new town just outside Henfield. The London property company, Mayfield Market Towns has earmarked 1200 acres of countryside between Henfield and Hurstpierpoint for the town - its High Street would be on marshland at Wineham. This development would be bigger than Burgess Hill or Haywards Heath - destroying our rural community and changing the landscape forever.
