Councillors are set to discuss the latest plans for a major development in Burgess Hill this evening (Monday October 10).

Burgess Hill Town Council will be discussing proposals to create 130 new homes along with public open space, recreation areas, play areas and associated infrastructure on land south of Freek’s Farm, in Freeks Lane.

The plans were submitted by developer Rydon Homes and have been labelled as the ‘first phase’ of the Northern Arc East development, which is part of a bigger scheme aiming to bring up to 3,500 homes to the town.
The Northern Arc strategic site stretches from land near Goddards Green Water Treatment Works (WTW) in the west, to the edge of the Bedelands Nature Reserve in the east.

It has been identified as an area for development in the emerging Mid Sussex District plan, which is due to be finalised later this year.

The meeting, open to the public, will be held in the council chambers at the Council Offices, in Church Walk, at 7pm.
