We are consulting the community on proposals for up to 600 new homes, a new hospice building for locally based charity St Catherine’s and a community hall, shop and café run by the charity.
The new homes will suit a variety of needs and help to address the growing demand for new homes in Sussex. The proposals include bungalows for the elderly, starter homes for first time buyers, and high quality family housing as well as affordable homes. The community will also benefit from a new community hall, shop and café that will surround a central village green interlinked with a network of formal and informal spaces, connecting to the woodland surroundings.
The new hospice building will be an integral part of this community and provides St Catherine’s with an opportunity to respond to the growing demand for hospice care locally and capture the hearts and minds of more local people to encourage them to think differently about hospices.
We have now submitted a planning application to Mid Sussex District Council. The application has been given the reference number DM/15/4711, and application documents can be viewed through Mid Sussex District Council's website.
The need is growing and this project is integral to allow the charity to expand their vital services
We operate throughout Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire from our head office based in Billingshurst
A number of character areas will be proposed to help define distinct neighbourhoods within the new village
