Countryside Properties has submitted a planning application for a sustainable residential-led mixed-use scheme at Broadbridge Heath that will contribute significantly towards housing provision in the area and enhance access to new services, open space and recreational opportunities.
The land to the south of Broadbridge Heath forms part of Horsham District Council’s West of Horsham strategic allocation.
The outline planning application covers the development of a mixed-use scheme comprising up to 960 predominantly family homes of mixed-tenure, a new primary school and the potential expansion of the Leisure Centre, equipped play areas and youth facilities including multi-use games areas, open access ball courts and a skate park. The homes will be built to high levels of environmental sustainability.
There will be high quality open space and linkages to the countryside beyond. Opportunities for local employment are accommodated within the neighbourhood centre to comprise a doctors’ surgery (to accommodate up to five GPs), five small flexible units (to be used for retail / commercial purposes subject to viability), a parish office and a restaurant/public house. There is also provision for allotments and formal sports pitches including a pavilion with changing facilities. (Image is indicative only)
The planning application follows extensive consultation with the local community and the council. It maximises the potential for integrating the development with the existing community of Broadbridge Heath and puts forward a new transport solution. The scheme has an accessible location close to the A24 and A264.
