Supermarket and homes plan for Selsey site


SELSEY residents will be invited to view plans for 157 homes, a supermarket, a pub/restaurant and a hotel at the entrance to the town.

The developers of Park Farm in Selsey, won permission for 50 homes on the site at appeal, but have changed their designs to feature what they say residents want.

The adjoining field has also been added to the plans, so the entire site is now bordered by Park Lane, Manor Road, Manor Lane, and the Oceanair buildings.

Michael Fletcher of Landlink Estates said the firm had worked hard with residents to identify what they wanted to see in the town.

“This is a fantastic example of localism,” he said. “I think this is a really excellent scheme. People don’t want to see houses at the entrance to the town, they want to see a hotel.”

The plan features a 20,000 square foot supermarket, which he said will keep shoppers in the town, as well as a petrol station, a family pub, a 40-bed hotel, a multi-use clinic, as well as the 157 homes.

The developers will hold an exhibition at the Selsey Town Council hall at 55 High Street, from 11am until 6pm tomorrow (May 20).

The plans will be on display and residents will have a chance to comment on the scheme before Landlink Estates submit the proposals to Chichester District Council.
