Meadow View — the most recent development in Ropley
It is recognised that there is little scope for develop- ment. What development there is to be should in- clude low cost homes for young people. Also a sur- vey should be conducted by the EHDC of redundant buildings with a view to utilising such buildings for low cost housing.
