BELLWAY APPOINTED BY HOMES ENGLAND TO DELIVER NEXT PHASE OF HOUSING AT THE NORTHERN ARC, BURGESS HILL – CONSULTATION NOW OPEN

Bellway have been appointed to design and build 249 homes to the east of the site, including 30% affordable housing. Bellway will also provide public open spaces, including an extension to the Bedelands nature reserve

Public consultation is open until 31 July and Bellway are seeking comments on their design in this period

Bellway expect to submit a planning application in late summer 2021, and subject to planning consent, start on site in late spring 2022

Bellway have been appointed by Homes England as the second house builder to join the Northern Arc scheme in Burgess Hill. They are already building in the local area and the homes under construction at Hassocks Golf Club demonstrate their sensitive design approach, both in terms of the houses they build and their place in the surrounding landscape. They were recently awarded “five-star builder” status for the third time by the Home Builders Federation – the highest accolade a house builder can receive.

Bellway are holding a consultation exercise on their proposals for land parcels at the Northern Arc ahead of a planning submission later this summer. Anyone can view the plans on the dedicated website and give feedback during this consultation period, which runs until the end of July. If you have questions or would like to receive the consultation material in print, please call the freephone number. All feedback is important to Bellway and will be carefully considered as they move towards a planning application later this summer.

Construction at the Northern Arc is now well underway with Countryside Properties making good progress at Freeks Farm and the first homes expected to be ready this autumn. Jackson Civils and Sisk & Son are also on site bringing forward vital infrastructure in the form of new link roads to the east and west of the scheme, demonstrating Homes England’s commitment to build supporting infrastructure alongside new homes.

Ken Glendinning, Project Director at Homes England said: “The appointment of Bellway at the Northern Arc is another major milestone for the project and we are looking forward to receiving local input into their designs. In an area of high house prices and housing demand, we continue to work closely with Mid Sussex District Council and our developer partners to make sure the Northern Arc is a sustainable community, creating homes, public open spaces and infrastructure.”

Daniel Bradbury, Regional Director at Bellway, said: “Bellway are delighted to have been appointed to deliver these 249 homes as part of the first phase of the Northern Arc. We pride ourselves on being a five star house builder who delivers positive additions to local communities. We look forward to building a range of 1 and 2 bed apartments along with 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes - all of which will sit within significant amounts of open space for new and existing residents to enjoy. Creating a desirable living environment with connectivity to the local area will improve quality of life for all residents.

We look forward to engaging with the community and local authority through our Reserved Matters proposals and I encourage people to take the time to view our consultation website and talk to our team.

The opportunity to partner with Homes England on this flagship site in Burgess Hill is one which Bellway is incredibly excited to progress and deliver.”
