Say NO! To housing hundreds of workers in disused South Downs - picturesque East Wittering

Putting hundreds of any kind of large groups of people, (it just happens to be eastern European agricultural workers this time mostly male) into a rural village (Bracklesham Bay) is a ludicrous decision.

This is NOT a racist petition and will not support any racist comments on here. Mark Marriott from Pro-Force who is responsible for these workers claims this is “large scale scaremongering through untruths and borderline racism”. This is just a cheap shot to play the race card as these workers are not from the UK. There would have been the same issues had they been a large scale group of young males from the UK.

The facts are they are already creating an intimidating atmosphere in the village by forming large groups sitting around on verges smoking and being thrown out of local pubs. There is simply nothing for this amount of young males to do in this village.

What this petition is about is having a VOICE. If this had been a planning application we would have been notified and been able to have our say, it is simply that this village can't cope especially in the summer months when it is gridlocked sometime seeing 8 mile tailbacks to West Wittering Beach.

Also our community doesn't have the infrastructure as well as services (Doctors/Dentists) to deal with this not to mention the impact on people living nearby.

What has annoyed local residents the most though is the way it has been handled by Seawood Properties, Pro--force recruitment and Cre8 property services and they should be held accountable for this issue.

A similar idea was stopped in 2015 when the Earnley Concourse was muted to house a similar amount and that petition reached over 2000 signatures.

This idea needs to be defended by all local residents.

This petition will be delivered to:
