Plans have been approved for the construction of 2,750 new homes, as part of a new community development in the West Sussex district of Horsham.
Horsham District’s full council decided to give the plans the go-ahead after concluding that the scheme, which will also feature a new business park of 46,450sqm, will deliver an estimated 4,000 new job opportunities and 825 new homes specifically allocated to meet local needs.
The project will also include a number of extensive facilities and services, which form part of an overall infrastructure and community benefits package of around £50m. This will include a new school campus comprising a primary and secondary school, as well as provision for early year’s education and children with special needs. In addition, there will be a multi-use community centre, shops, health facilities, sport and recreation amenities and public open space.
