£63 million infrastructure boost for Northern Arc
Homes England, the Government’s housing accelerator, has secured a further £63 million investment in the Northern Arc at Burgess Hill in West Sussex.
The Northern Arc development will create a new community of approximately 3,500 homes (30% affordable) employment opportunities, three new schools, health provision, improved pedestrian and cycle connections, sports and leisure opportunities as well as supporting highways infrastructure.
The funding injection, which comes from the Government’s Land Assembly Fund, will allow the construction of key infrastructure – including roads, a bridge, landscaping, drainage and utility works – to be accelerated at the eastern and western ends of the site.
Countryside Properties has now been confirmed as the developer for the Freeks Farm area of the site. Countryside will start building the first phase of 460 homes in March 2020, on the east of the site. It is expected that these homes will be completed in December 2020, providing a mix of apartments and one to four bedroom houses. Their proposals prioritise design quality and use of Modern Methods of Construction.
