Outline planning for 500 new homes, school, community centre and public open space

Project Description

On behalf of our clients, Gleeson Strategic Land, we have prepared an outline planning application for 500 homes with a new primary school, community building, pedestrian link across the railway (bridge or tunnel), a strategic cycle link to Burgess Hill and public open space on land at Hassocks, East Sussex.

At all stages we have worked closely with the Council, the local community and the consultant team to deliver a masterplan for the site. This involved securing the allocation, a community exhibition, meetings with local residents and the Parish and Local Council.

The application is due to go to the planning committee in December 2019.
