A leading housebuilder is investing £8million into the environment as it brings new homes to Burgess Hill.

Charles Church Thames Valley is building The Croft in Burgess Hill – a collection of two to five bedroom homes suitable for first-time buyers and young professionals through to families looking to upsize.

The first phase of the new homes have sold out, but planning permission has been secured for a further 105 homes.

When complete, the development, which is being delivered in partnership with Sunley Estates, will comprise 480 homes.

Managing director Martyn Clark said: “We are delighted to be bringing much needed homes to this beautiful part of West Sussex.

“As part of the delivery of new homes, we are pleased to be injecting a financial contribution of £8.1m into the local economy, which will include a new access from Kings Way.

“Money will also go towards a neighbourhood centre and high quality accessible informal open space, including a new park, landscape buffer and green pedestrian and cycle routes.”

The development borders onto Ditchling Common Country Park.
