  1. Who is delivering the scheme and who is Homes England?

    Homes England is the Government’s housing agency. They are responsible for increasing the number of homes that are built in England, including affordable homes and homes for market sale. They unlock development by releasing more land to developers who want to make a difference, and by making homes happen where they are most needed. Homes England are the master developer at Brookleigh. They have acquired the land at the Northern Arc and will make it available to developer partners as they join the project, as well as directly appoint contractors to bring forward key infrastructure at the right time.

  2. Why is Brookleigh being developed?

    The land that makes up Brookleigh was allocated in the Mid Sussex District Plan (adopted March 2018) as a strategic mixed use allocation. It is part of the broader Burgess Hill Growth Programme. In October 2019, outline planning consent was granted (DM/18/5114). The planning application can be accessed on Mid Sussex District Council’s planning register.
