Submission of first reserved matters application

Linden Homes and Miller Homes are delighted to have submitted their first reserved matters application for Whitehouse Farm.

This application covers primary infrastructure, including:

  • The “SANGs” (Suitable Alternative Natural Green Spaces)
  • The primary access road
  • Drainage infrastructure – known in planning terms as “SuDS” (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems)

Linden and Miller would like to again thank those who provided feedback prior to this application’s submission, including those who attended our public exhibition in November 2017. As a result of feedback received from the community and District Council officers, a number of changes were made to the scheme.

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Provision of raised tables at junctions located along the course of the primary access road – giving priority to cyclists and pedestrians using the shared cycleway/footway over other road users;
  • Introduction of dog play areas and dog swimming ponds in the Southern Country Park;
  • Introduction of dipping ponds within the country park to facilitate opportunities for education;
  • Improved pedestrian connections across the site, in particular within the Southern Country Park;
  • Increased landscape buffer to the north of the site at the request of existing neighbouring residents; and
  • Introduction of wider (3m) hoggin paths to sections of the SANGs to facilitate cyclist access.

Chichester District Council will now consider and determine this application. For further information on this reserved matters application, you can see the relevant website page here. For further information on the reserved matters process, please click here.
