Homes England seeks expressions of interest for exciting new development opportunity in Burgess Hill
The Northern Arc is a multi-million pound Homes England flagship development in Burgess Hill. It will deliver approximately 3,500 new homes along with three new schools, neighbourhood centres, parks and open spaces and significant investment in supporting infrastructure. Currently, Homes England’s first developer partner Countryside Properties are building new homes to the east of the site. New developer partners will soon be joining the scheme, and it is anticipated that the project will bring investment and jobs to the area over its 12 year buildout programme.
Homes England will soon be looking to dispose of a 4ha parcel of employment land to the south of the A2300, suitable for a range of employment uses such as offices, research and development and industry. The land use parameters specify a max floorspace of 24,000 sqm (B1 and B2 use classes as defined pre-September 2020), and not more than 2,500 sqm to be office space. There are also requirements to deliver pedestrian and cycle access, vehicular access and car parking.
The creation of employment land in this location will maximise opportunities associated with the directly adjacent ‘Hub’ employment site to the west, encouraging business linkages and integration between new and existing residents. Homes England are committed to building a sustainable community at the Northern Arc, providing opportunities for new and existing residents to benefit throughout the construction period and for generations to come.
Homes England are requesting expressions of interest in this employment land – from both potential purchasers and potential occupiers.
In order to gauge interest in regards to potential occupiers and purchasers , and have an open discussion in regards to plans for the site, Homes England are hosting an online event at 2pm on Monday 15th November.
