Objections concerning air pollution were discarded by Brighton & Hove Council and the prospect of high costs of fighting the proposals has left residents in Ovingdean worried that the planned development of 45 homes in their village could lead to the prospect of more homes than originally planned being built near-by.

Below is a map of the area where the development is planned.
