New city homes allowed

THE LATEST stage of the Graylingwell housing development has been given planning permission by Chichester District Council.

The application for 35 homes, with 67 parking spaces, including six visitor spaces, open space and landscaping was approved on June 14 by the council.

Developers Linden Homes submitted the plans for phase five in April.

The Graylingwell project is the UK’s largest carbon neutral development and is set to include 40 per cent social housing.

Out of the 35 homes, 26 will be houses and nine will be conversions, made up of four one-bedroom flats, three two-bedroom flats and two studio flats.

The project is a partnership between Linden Homes, Affinity Sutton and the Homes and Communities Agency which is meant to see the 85-acre site at Graylingwell Park provide 750 eco-friendly homes.

In a planning statement, John Thompson architects said they held talks with around 400 people to suit the area.
