Gravelye Lane

Gravelye Lane - Lindfield - Haywards Heath - West Sussex

We have prepared outline proposals for a new residential development of up to 130 homes on land to the east of Gravelye Lane, Lindfield.

  • Overview

    Land off Gravelye Lane

    We have submitted an outline planning application for a new residential development of up to 130 homes on land to the east of Gravelye Lane, Lindfield.

    The proposed development site is located to the east of Gravelye Lane and south of Scamps Hill (B2111), as shown on the plan pictured right.

    To the south of the site is a new residential development at Langmore Lane and Chilton Grove. In addition, a further approved housing scheme located adjacent to the Taylor Wimpey site’s southern and eastern boundaries is currently under construction.

    Our application site covers an area of approximately 6.6 hectares (16.3 acres) and is considered to be in an accessible and sustainable location to help meet the area’s defined housing needs.

    We submitted our outline planning application to Mid Sussex District Council in March 2016, and you can view the application by visiting MSDC's online planning pages (search planning reference DM/16/1012).

    The application was reported to committee on the 14th July 2016 with a recommendation for approval by planning officers.  Members, however, refused the application at committee and an appeal has now been lodged.

    Illustrative Masterplan

    We have submitted an outline planning application for the proposed development, which seeks to establish the general principle of development on the site with access for vehicles off Gravelye Lane.

    Detailed matters such as final layout and property design will be dealt with by means of future ‘reserved matters’ planning applications if our outline application is approved.

    Our outline proposals have been informed by the feedback received from the local community and stakeholders during a public consultation in January 2016.

    The illustrative masterplan pictured right forms the basis of our outline application and key facts about our scheme are detailed below.
