Pressure for development, housing and business will always exist in a thriving area such as Horley. The closeness of Horley to Gatwick Airport has created a thriving and busy environment. The nearby M23 and our busy road systems link areas of housing, business parks, villages and some very beautiful countryside. Here is some information on current projects, possible developments and matters of concern.
