In 2000 Land & Brand New Homes identified this Greenfield site which extended to some 83 acres, in Courtwick Lane, Littlehampton
In 2007 we were appointed by The Courtwick Partnership to work alongside a promoter in gaining a planning consent for 600 residential dwellings, which included 4,000 square metres of commercial with the usual Public Open Space, LEAPS and LAPS
There was substantial opposition to the application, however utilising Examinations in Public and promoting the benefits of contributions that were made under the auspice of the Section 106, consent was gained at Committee rather than at Appeal
The Section 106 was not forthcoming until late January 2012. Issues relating to the bus route and ground conditions all came to the fore as the transaction progressed
Detailed information was prepared and was offered to a selective market and terms were eventually agreed with Barratt Southern Counties, who brought in a partner, Bellway Homes (Wessex). Contracts were finalised on 29 June 2012
