Homes England and West Sussex County Council’s plans to create a zero-carbon school approved by Mid Sussex District Council
Homes England and West Sussex County Council’s plans to create a zero-carbon school were approved by Mid Sussex District Council’s planning committee on 15 December 2022. The ambitious design will allow the school to generate its own renewable energy on site without using any fossil fuels. It aims to be the first school in West Sussex to achieve Passivhaus certification, the highest standard of energy efficiency a building can reach, and offer excellent educational facilities to 900 local children. The school will be the largest capital project West Sussex County Council has delivered, and the cost will be part-funded by a £18m contribution from Homes England.

The first homes for sale on the private market will be available next year. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for further updates: www.burgesshill.net/housing/brookleigh
John Sisk & Son Ltd will be carrying out further works to Issacs Lane to construct a site access road next week. In order to undertake the works safely but also keep one lane open for traffic, it will be necessary to install temporary traffic lights on Isaacs Lane during off peak hours (9am to 4pm) Monday 28th November to Friday 2nd December. We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused.
Although the roadworks at the southern end of Cuckfield Road are not connected with the Brookleigh development, we understand that they are expected to be complete by this Friday 25th November, so there will not be two sets of temporary lights in the immediate vicinity.
