This is all about our heritage. This crossing should be listed and maintained.
I will be there tomorrow to add support. Network Rail, already heavily subsidised by Sussex taxpayers, owe it to us.

It will certainly improve traffic flows with no gates, scope to do this on all crossings (although a bit dangerous).

The crossing gates are listed as part of the listed station buildings.
Network Rail try to do this every couple of years. I guess they just think we will eventually get bored of saying no!

I seem to remember this being talked about when I lived there many years ago. In the end they were concerned enough about horses escaping from the racecourse onto the track to abandon the idea.

Negotiations and meetings have been held between the railway company,the village and the Plumpton Parish Council for months now.It`s a done deal.They will get their way, no matter how you protest.Planning permission has been granted for development in what I can only sy is a ridiculous position.|The powers that be will not fight this as they should.A carrot will be dangled and the "donkey" will take it!!In the 23 years I have lived in the village it`s always been so.Various projects have been completed during that time and most thanks to funding from land owners and developers.There are currently ongoing appeals for money to improve facilities within Plumpton Green and I will almost guarantee a donation from a railway company, should the gates be replaced trouble free.If a penny doesn`t change hands I will make an apology if necessary to the whole village.Everyone knows who I am and I really cannot see the reasons for hiding behind a "keyboard warrior"name.
This said I am against the changes and will endeavour to support those that are prepared to stand up and fight...........now where`s my tent ??

Seems common sense won out and listed building consent was refused. I wonder what will happen now?

Are they planning for half barriers which are undoubtedly dangerous. Or full barriers with "hanging fencing" that provides full protection. ?
