Brighton Rocks - New Homes & Major Business Space Planned

Brighton City Shoreham Airport
20 June 2019
 

What is being described as a 'once in a generation development’ has received the go-ahead.

The New Monks Farm development in Lancing and a development at Brighton City Airport have been given the green light.

James Brokenshire MP, Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, decided not to call-in the landmark applications.

The £150 million regeneration for New Monks Farm includes 600 new homes including affordable homes, a large country park, a community hub, land for a primary school, transport infrastructure and a new IKEA store to serve the south coast.

At Brighton City Airport 25,000sq.m of new business floorspace will be delivered.

Adur District Council’s planning committee approved the schemes in October 2018. Peter Rainier, Principal Director of Planning at DMH Stallard, said: “The New Monks Farm and Brighton City Airport developments are once in a generation developments that will create hundreds of new jobs, much needed homes, leisure and lifestyle opportunities, new education provision, transport infrastructure and the first IKEA in Sussex.”
