‘Pretty grim’ sight at entrance to Midhurst

Calls to clear the overgrown former Frazer Nash site in Midhurst’s Bepton Road have been made by town councillors.

The precision engineering and manufacturing company moved out of Midhurst in 2011 and the site has remained empty ever since despite plans for a mixed retail and housing development on the site.

But Steve Morley told fellow members of the town council’s planning committee he believed the site was ‘beginning to look like a butterfly farm with all the overgrown buddleia bushes. I think we should ask the owners of the land to do something about it.”

Fellow councillor John Quilter said it made for a ‘pretty grim’ sight at the southern entrance.
