Welcome to our North of Horsham community website
Legal & General has set up this website to keep the local community up to date and informed with the latest information as the development progresses. Work officially started on site in September 2020 as we began to deliver the early infrastructure required to allow the Department of Education and Wates Construction to build and open the new secondary school in December 2021, operated by Bohunt Academy Trust.
The North Horsham development was granted outline planning permission in March 2018. We are now working hard to prepare the site by building roads, services and landscaping for residential and commercial uses. New homes, commercial buildings and retail opportunities will be applied for individually through Reserved Matters Planning applications.
Legal & General acquired the site in December 2018 from Liberty Property, and has subsequently held several community consultation events to get your feedback on the development plans. This feedback was crucial when planning our work, and has resulted in several significant changes to the original plans, including accelerating the delivery of the pedestrian and cycle bridge over the A264 to ensure it opens in time for the Bohunt Horsham School.
The latest works involve the delivery of an upgraded roundabout along the A264 junction with Rusper Road to serve the development and the new school. There is more information about this in our ‘Latest News’ section. We are also delivering the utilities and other infrastructure needed to support the homes and school.
Legal & General Homes and CALA Southern Home Counties have submitted Reserved Matters applications for approximately 197 and 193 residential homes respectively, as part of the first phase of development.
We recently published our first newsletter, which can be viewed under ‘Latest News’, and introduced our new team to the community. Going forward, we will be sharing monthly updates with our mailing list and on our ‘Latest News’ page. You can sign up to receive these updates at the bottom of the page.
Finally, if you have any questions, comments, or queries about the North of Horsham development, please get in touch with our dedicated Community Liaison Team using the details below. We are committed to creating a development which integrates with the existing community and as part of that, we need to hear from you about how we can best support our neighbours.
We hope to speak to you soon!Latest news→
