windmills Gatwick Zoo to be developed for housing

Charles Church has started building work to turn the former Gatwick Zoo into a housing development. The development, which took 2 years to get planning permission, is on Green Belt land, and includes 13 homes.

The Lowfield Heath windmill, moved to the site to prevent its destruction as Gatwick airport was developed, has been handed over to the Windmill Trust for continued preservation, and a 2 acre area around the mill will remain undeveloped.
