Planning permission for 3,000 new homes in Burgess Hill has been approved by Mid Sussex District Council’s planning committee.
Once discussed with the community, Homes England, who own the 494-acre site known as the Northern Arc, will work with developers to propose detailed planning applications.
Additionally, the development is set to provide;
- 3 neighbourhood centres,
- 3 schools,
- employment opportunities,
- easy access to public transport,
- walking and cycling routes.
The development will provide both existing, and new residents, with affordable and market-priced homes to buy and rent, says the head of strategic land at Homes England, Ken Glendinning, continuing;
“We developed our plans following discussions with the local community as well as working closely with Mid Sussex District Council and West Sussex County Council to ensure that the necessary infrastructure will be delivered at the right time.
Over the next three years, we plan to invest around £41 million in vital new infrastructure at the Northern Arc.
This will unlock these needed new homes in Mid Sussex, making homes happen faster and ensuring they are a real benefit to the local community.
The new infrastructure will relieve traffic pressure and provide better links in this part of Mid Sussex.”
Construction is anticipated to commence in 2020.
