The Story So Far
In 2011 we submitted a planning application for the development of up to 550 homes to the west of Southwater. This followed extensive consultation with the local community over many years. However, we withdrew this application last year so that we could change the plans in response to comments from the local community.
We are now preparing a new planning application to provide a development which aims to better meet local aspirations and deliver a new neighbourhood which will enhance Southwater as an attractive and Sustainable community.
The land to the west of Southwater has been identified by Horsham District Council as a location for development in its District Planning Framework Preferred Strategy. The site therefore forms part of the district council's preferred strategy for meeting the housing needs of the local area.
