Homes England has released the first in a series of quarterly newsletters to provide an update on the progress of delivery of the Northern Arc.
Development at the Northern Arc is part of the ambitious Burgess Hill Strategic Growth Programme which will transform the local economy by creating thousands of new jobs and homes.
The Northern Arc has been carefully designed to enable modern living within an environmentally sustainable community. In total, it will deliver up to 3,500 new homes (30% affordable), surrounded by approximately 80 hectares of parklands and open spaces.
New community and leisure facilities, primary and secondary schools and employment opportunities will provide vibrant focal points of day-to-day living. These will be connected by pedestrian and cycle networks, easy access to public transport and electric charging points to promote a low carbon energy neighbourhood.
Over the next three years, Homes England expects to invest around £41 million in new pieces of vital infrastructure (a primary and secondary school, roads, open spaces and neighbourhood centres). This infrastructure will enable the building of much needed new homes in Mid Sussex and ensure they are a real benefit to the local community by relieving traffic pressure and providing connections into Burgess Hill and the surrounding area.
Phase One of this multi-million-pound flagship development will be delivered between 2020 and 2025. You can find all the latest information in the Northern Arc Quarterly Newsletter.
Homes England will also be providing regular drop-in sessions to provide an update on progress and answer any questions you may have. The first session is being held on Tuesday 28 January between 12 and 2pm at The Triangle, Triangle Way, Burgess Hill.
