Landform is promoting a site in Bersted on the north-western edge of Bognor Regis for a mix of residential and employment uses. The 15.5ha (38 acres) site is suitable for around 250 new homes, public open spaces, sports facilities, and will incorporate the modernisation and expansion of the nearby Chalcroft Nursery, which will include new retail outlets and a cafe.
The site is part of the West of Bersted Strategic Housing Site SD3, which is being promoted jointly with the Church Commissioners and Langmead Farms, the adjoining land owners, for around 2,500 new homes. The site was allocated in the Arun District Council Local Plan in the summer of 2018.
A planning application is currently being prepared for the site, which is due to be submitted later in the summer of 2019. Considerable interest is already being shown from housebuilders in the site, even at this relatively early stage, reflecting the high demand in the area for good quality and well-located sites.
