A new health spa will offer a range of facilities, including a gym, treatment rooms, indoor/outdoor pools, sauna/steam room, hydrotherapy pool, health café/ restaurant, farm shop and gardens.

The purpose of the consultation is to give local residents and stakeholders the opportunity to discover more about its emerging proposals, ask questions and provide feedback prior to the submission of a planning application to Chichester District Council later in the year.

Terry Pullen, CEO of The Substantia Group, commented: “We are delighted to be bringing forward our proposals for ‘Foxbridge’.

“Working closely with local communities and stakeholders to ensure that our designs are formed collaboratively is a key part of our philosophy.

“We are committed to engaging with residents and stakeholders in the local area as part of this public consultation.”

Once operational, Foxbridge will sustain around 60 full time jobs across a range of skill levels, providing a path to employment for many in the area.

Further information will also be made available on the project’s dedicated consultation website foxbridge.consultationonline.co.uk, where residents will be able view the proposals and have their say online from Thursday 19 May until Wednesday 1 June May 2022.
