Fiona Mitchell, Sales Manager at Bellway South London, said: “It will be a pleasure to hand over the keys to the first residents at Elizabeth Square and to witness the growth of a brand-new neighbourhood in this part of Worthing. The variety of new housing we are building at this 14.8-acre site is to meet the specific needs of the local market and will ensure the growth of a diverse community.

“Sales have been strong at this development and 15 buyers have so far reserved new properties with us here.

“The prospect of moving to a fabulous coastal location where we are delivering a collection of energy-efficient new-build homes, all of which will feature electric vehicle charging and many with solar PV panels, is appealing to home-hunters. Residents will be just a 20-minute walk from the shops, the charming seafront and Goring-by-Sea’s popular sand and shingle beach.

“Even though the development is wonderfully situated close to the seaside, the local transport links are also excellent. Durrington-on-Sea railway station neighbours Elizabeth Square and offers regular services to London, Portsmouth and Brighton. Motorists are also well-served by the A27 which offers access to the wider region.”
