The site is surrounded by other approved developments with housebuilding already taking place on the other side of Madgwick Lane by Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes.


Permission has also been granted for new homes to the north-west on a parcel of land east of the Graylingwell site as well as another site containing green infrastructure including playing fields.

According to the new application: “This site is an exciting strategic development opportunity. The location ties together the three previously approved SDL [Strategic Development Location] applications. It is a great opportunity to provide improved connections, public open space, and to deliver a high-quality development where people want to live.”

The plans include a new access from Madgwick Lane, relocated agricultural access as well as green infrastructure, which includes the enhancement of the Lavant Valley linear green space.
