The site lies to the east of Graylingwell and has been allocated in the Council’s Local Plan for a housing-led development in two locations - Westhampnett and Graylingwell.
The first phase of development at Westhampnett has already been granted planning permission. This includes 300 high quality new homes. A planning application to deliver two playing fields, a sports pavilion, car parking and a linear greenway offering access along the Lavant Valley from Madgwick Lane, has also been granted permission.
The proposals shown today relate to the 200 homes required in the Local Plan to the north east of Graylingwell, accessed through the new Graylingwell development. Attractive, design-led new homes will overlook the extensive green spaces proposed and leisure routes will be created, including new footpath/cycle routes linking into existing paths.
This development would generate around £1.5 million in New Homes Bonus and approximately £1.7million in Community Infrastructure Levy payments to improve local infrastructure such as education, public transport, and open space as required to accommodate this development. The contribution to the A27 improvement scheme is more than £200,000 for this 200 new homes scheme.
In addition, around 300 construction jobs would be created and the new residents would bring around £5.5 million in annual spend into the area, helping to sustain local shops and services
