GO-AHEAD FOR NEW HOMES AND GREEN SPACES IN WEST SOMPTINGPlans to build 469 new homes in West Sompting, with 30 per cent affordable dwellings and new green spaces, have been approved.
Members of Adur District Council’s Planning Committee last night (Sept 20) gave the green light to the development, to be built by Persimmons Homes, after negotiations between the builder and council officers to enhance the design of the development. The discussions also secured the necessary infrastructure improvements including the provision of 30 percent of the building as affordable rented accommodation to meet the needs of the District.
In addition the developer will pay the Council more than £2m to help build a new primary school at New Monks Farm, £1.7 million for transport infrastructure including traffic calming measures, cycle links to Worthing, and bus subsidy contributions.
