Update on planning application for North of Horsham

Liberty submits additional information to Horsham District Council

Masterplan developer, Liberty Property Trust has submitted additional information to Horsham District Council in support of its planning application for a sustainable, mixed-use new community at North of Horsham.

Since submitting its outline planning application in August 2016, Liberty Property Trust has continued to engage with local residents, businesses, parish councils and other groups to respond to queries and explain how the application addresses their concerns.  Liberty has also been in regular contact with officers at Horsham District Council, West Sussex County Council and relevant statutory consultees to assist in their technical assessment of the plans.

There has been significant interest in the application and the representations received by the district council raise a range of issues.  Liberty has spent recent weeks preparing an update, which sets out a response to each of these matters and also contains further information and assessments where these were required.  Liberty is confident that this additional information will respond to each of the points raised and allow a fully informed decision on the application to be taken by the district council.

Liberty has submitted this information to the district council and it is now the subject of a further period of formal consultation with the local community.

If you would like to give your formal feedback on the plans, the Liberty planning application is registered with reference number DC/16/1677.  Full details of the planning application can be accessed via the Council’s planning portal: https://public-access.horsham.gov.uk/public-access/
