Thakeham Partnerships will begin building 71 new affordable homes in West Sussex this month.
100% affordable housing
Thakeham is building a mixture of rented and shared ownership homes on the site formerly occupied by Wings Nursery off Lidsey Road. The development will deliver 100% affordable housing.
Work on site recently begun and has a completion date of September 2023.
Sustainable, infrastructure-led planning
Rob Boughton, CEO of Thakeham, said:
This is a strategically significant site that will help to meet the need for affordable homes in the Arun area. We are proud to be working with Southern Housing Group, once again, to help boost housing provision for local people for many years to come.
The development will represent the very best in sustainable infrastructure-led planning, with solar panels and electric vehicle charging points. And with families in mind, it will meet the needs of all ages and groups within the local area.
Continued quality partnerships
Southern Housing Group is one of southern England’s leading housing associations, providing more than 30,000 homes across the South of England.
Luke Chandler, Development Director, said:
Having recently started on site, this development marks a significant milestone in our plans to deliver over a hundred affordable homes for local people at Wings Nursery. We are delighted to be working with Thakeham Partnerships on this exciting project. The strength of our partnership with Thakeham enabled us to successfully secure the site for the second phase of development.
As part of securing this opportunity, Thakeham provided Southern Housing Group with a consultancy service that oversaw all aspects of the planning process that concluded with the successful approval of the reserved matters application.
