CONTROVERSIAL plans for new homes in Petworth have been withdrawn by the developers.
The planning committee has objected to a development for 33 homes on part of the former Petworth Primary School on the Dawtrey and Wyndham Road Littlecote housing estate.
The application has now been withdrawn by the developer.
Nearly 20 objections were received from residents.
Mr Torode of South Grove said: “The Grove is a lovely quite area to live. We will be seeking the approval of all in the vicinity of this proposed development to object most categorically.
“I can see no good coming from this development other than disruption and at best overcrowding.”
