To the north of site is the Mill Farm Estate, south are some houses associated with Rockery Farm and to the east is the new 300 home development.
Hallam said the site is next to the built up area boundary and so in the countryside where new housing is normally restricted.
“The development of land west of Pagham Road provides a unique opportunity to create a new neighbourhood, building onn the distinctive character of the site,” the statement said.
“It will meet an identified housing need creating a housing choice with accessible open space and set of linkages to the existing settlement and associated facilities.
“Land west of Pagham Road will be a highly desirable place to live for the 21st century and beyond.”
