The first of these properties are due to be ready before the end of this year and will range from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom family homes, including for those aged 55 plus and fully wheelchair-accessible homes. The first homes for private market sale are expected to be ready by summer 2022.

A spokesman for Mid Sussex District Council said construction at the Northern Arc is now well underway with Countryside Properties making good progress at Freeks Farm, Jacksons onsite building the western link road and Sisk expecting to begin on the eastern bridge and link road this spring. These new access points in the east and west of the site will play a major part in unlocking the whole site whilst delivering essential road infrastructure at the same time as homes.

Ken Glendinning, Project Director at Homes England said: “The appointment of the first affordable housing provider at the Northern Arc is a major milestone for the project. In an area of high house prices and housing demand, we are working closely with Mid Sussex District Council and our developer partners to make sure the Northern Arc helps meet the housing needs of local people.”

Mark Sater, Chief Executive Officer at Sage Housing said: “We’re delighted to be working with Countryside Properties, Homes England and Mid Sussex District Council to add high-quality affordable housing to the local community. Our long-term stable capital is helping to accelerate the provision of homes to those in most need.”
