Plan for 165 homes on the outskirts of Chichester will go to appeal

Proposals for 165 homes between Chichester and Westhampnett will be decided by planning inspectors after developers lodged an appeal.

The application site is in red, with other developments in yellow and purple. Green is the green infrastructure land

Council planning officers refused outline permission for the 165 homes earlier this month, arguing that the site was an ‘isolated pocket of land’, physically divorced from both Chichester and Westhampnett, while the development would be out of character in this open area of the Lavant valley landscape.

The parcel of land is north of Madgwick Lane, with the River Lavant on its western boundary. The site is near other approved developments with housebuilding already taking place on the other side of Madgwick Lane by Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.
