Sir Peter Bottomley is holding a mass-photo gathering on Saturday 3rd of February on Chatsmore Farm / Goring Gap. ( 11.45am)

The MP is leading on a 'say No' campaign to prevent Persimmon Homes mission to build 475 properties on the green gap between Worthing and Ferring. Despite losing a series of court challenges, Sir Peter says,  the company has refused to withdraw its plans.

The appeal will now be considered at a new public inquiry in February 2024.

Ahead of this, the MP is coming together with fellow residents, students of St Oscar Romero Catholic School, local Councillors and community representatives to  send a clear message to the Planning Inspectors handling the appeal - Worthing and Arun communities say NO to Persimmon.

With the help of a drone, they aim to form the word 'No' to make their point..

The gathering will meet at Chatsmore Farm, to the north of the junction of The Strand and Goring Street at 11:45am.

"Bring your family, bring your friends, bring your neighbours.

"Together, as one united community without divide, we say NO to Persimmon."
