Brookleigh will provide 3,500 new homes in an environmentally sustainable community in Mid Sussex. 30% of all homes at Brookleigh will be affordable housing, and the creation of new community and leisure facilities such as schools and parks will be complemented by a network of green spaces. This network will have the important positive impact of creating habitats for native British wildlife and Homes England have committed to providing a 23% biodiversity net gain across the site.
