Construction work is set to begin on a new housing development in Bognor Regis.
Bellway Wessex is to build 50 new homes on land off New Barn Lane in North Bersted after planning permission was granted by Arun District Council.
Rookery Park, as the development is to be known, will comprise 35 homes for private sale, including a range of two, three and four-bedroom properties.
The remaining 15 homes, featuring a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom properties, will be made available as affordable housing for rent or shared ownership.
A total of 125 car parking spaces, including 113 for residents, will be provided at the development, while covered and secured cycle spaces are also included in the plans.
The 4.8-acre site, which is located next to the Jubilee Recreation Ground and Jubilee Hall, will be served by an access road from New Barn Lane. Existing trees and hedges on the site will be retained and enhanced as part of the development.
Shaun Pettitt, regional director of Bellway Wessex, said: “Our Rookery Park development will deliver a range of high-quality homes in an accessible village location on the edge of Bognor Regis so the council’s decision to approve the scheme is a positive move for people looking to get on or move up the housing ladder.
“There will be a mix of houses and apartments to cater for a variety of buyers, as well as a significant proportion of affordable homes to meet local demand, and great care will be taken to preserve and enhance the natural landscape around the built development.
“All the homes at Rookery Park will be from our Artisan Collection, a new range of houses which combines traditional craftsmanship and attention to detail with the very latest construction techniques, and we are very much looking forward to showcasing these new designs to buyers.
“We plan to start construction work on site in July and to release the first homes for sale early next year.”
