Asked to comment on the plans, Sussex Police gave a number of recommendations to make the site as safe as possible. These included building communal parking areas within view of ‘active room’s like living rooms and kitchens in the properties themselves, using mounted postboxes instead of letter boxes to minimise the risk of lock tampering, walls or fencing 1.8 metres in height to protect ‘vulnerable’ sides of the properties, and ground planting no higher than one metre to maintain visibility.
