Decision due on 1,300 homes west of Tangmere
Plans for 1,300 homes on the western edge of Tangmere are set to be decided next week.
Countryside Properties’ outline application is scheduled to be debated by Chichester District Council’s planning committee on Wednesday March 31.
The company is acting as the council’s development partner as CDC goes through the Compulsory Purchase Order process to unblock the strategic housing allocation.
The scheme includes a new primary school, expanded village centre, public open spaces and extensive footpaths and cycleways.
The proposed development would be split into four character areas: the village centre, countryside edge, the historic setting and the spine road.
The main access to the site will be from the Temple Bar junction with the A27, with two secondary points from Tangmere Road to the south, one of which will require the construction of a new roundabout.
If outline permission is granted, ground and drainage works could start on site in late 2022.
The committee is also due to discuss another application by Redrow Homes for 143 homes on the corner of Oving Road and the A27.
Outline permission was granted on appeal for 100 homes back in 2017.
A subsequent application for 143 homes on the same site was refused, with an appeal pending.
The developer then came back with revised plans and these are due to be discussed on Wednesday.
