    In Mid Sussex Times

    Mid Sussex Liberal Democrats are calling upon the government to halt the decision to increase regulated fares in January 2019 by an average of 3.2% and freeze them at their current level.

    Robert Eggleston, Lib Dem PPC for Mid Sussex, said:

    "A 3.2% increase in rail fares on top of last year's inflation busting rise of 3.6% on average will be a further bitter blow for passengers in Mid Sussex. They have had to put up with the botched introduction of the new rail timetable, routine cancellations, persistent delays and often overcrowded trains for too long. The government should be giving them a refund not expecting them to pay more.

    The £1bn of investment in Burgess Hill being promoted by Mid Sussex District Council includes the cost of building around 5,000 new houses. We believe that houses are homes and not investment. Homes should be part of a thriving local community with all of the services and infrastructure needed to support the needs of local residents. Although there are some proposed community facilities associated with the new development the fact remains that if we had an adopted Local Plan we would have already received millions in developer contributions towards much needed local infrastructure across Mid Sussex.
