Persimmon Homes are in the process of preparing a planning application for an attractive new residential led mixed use development on land at Chatsmore Farm, Goring. A public consultation exhibition is to take place on 7th October 2019 where further details will be provided.
Persimmon Homes has been focusing on proposals for the Company’s freehold land, extending northwards of Goring Station, over several years in the context of a significant and severe housing shortfall in the area. In short, Worthing Borough Council is required to find land for a minimum of 880 new homes per year to accord with the national planning guidance.
The proposals seek to develop the site for up to 465 new homes, 30% of which will be affordable housing. The proposals also include a new local centre, car parking for the railway station and extensive areas of public open space.
