Outline plans have been approved by Chichester District Council’s Planning Committee for up to 1,300 new homes, 30% being affordable, with a primary school and a number of exciting new community and commercial facilities at Tangmere
Countryside was appointed by Chichester District Council to work with them and Tangmere Parish Council to bring forward the strategic site.
Significant areas of public open space that make up around half of the site, including allotments and a community orchard will be created.
Martin Leach, Managing Director, Strategic Land, Countryside, said: “We are delighted that Councillors were supportive of the plans which have evolved to create an attractive place that responds positively to the context of Tangmere, with the community at its heart. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with Tangmere Parish Council and the community as we progress with the details of the Reserved Matters planning applications.”
The Outline Planning application was progressed alongside a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) process, and a decision on this is expected by the Secretary of State later this year. Following this, it is anticipated that Countryside will submit the initial Reserved Matters applications in early 2022 with construction commencing later that year.
