South Hailsham, Wealden

Two successful outline planning applications for 400 and 100 homes in Wealden District

Project Description

On behalf of our clients, Rydon Homes and Gleeson Strategic Land, we have prepared an outline planning application for 400 homes on land at South Hailsham. A subsequent application for 100 dwellings was also granted with a cap of 55 dwellings at the time due to windfall planning policies only being able to support this level of development at the time. The site had a large number of constraints to consider including odour, flooding, sewers and the need to provide a replacement village green within the site to allow for off-site highway improvements.

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.
