Landowner Borde Hill Estate has secured approval to build 210 houses on Penland Farm, on the northern edge of Haywards Heath.

The 72.15 acre site is a mix of rolling arable farmland and ancient woodland on the fringe of the High Weald area of outstanding natural beauty and the Grade II* listed Borde Hill Parkland.

Following a public inquiry in October 2014, planning approval has now been granted despite strong local opposition.
