Homes England has associated with West Sussex County Council, Mid Sussex District Council and Highways England for building a new road. This allows the upgrade to existing roads in and around the Northern Arcat Burges Hill.
Homes England has one of the key commitments towards building a successful community at the Northern Arc. This is to provide the correct type of infrastructure that is set to happen in the right time, and meet the needs of Burges Hill.
This new infrastructure will support new housing, and also minimise environmental impact. Homes England is working with its partners to manage these issues while Northern Arc is working as master developer.
It also ensures that the project has a positive environmental legacy fit for the challenges of the 21st Century. Cycling and walking is to be prioritized at the Northern Arc by extending Burgess Hill’s Green Circle network.
There will be pedestrian and cycle routes forming a major part of the road design process. This is to make sure everyone will be able to travel safely. When work is complete, it will allow construction traffic to access development plots.
The development is for housing and the primary and secondary schools, routing heavy vehicle traffic away from Freeks Lane where Countryside Properties are currently developing 460 homes.
Homes England continues to work collectively with its partners to ensure the Link Road and Eastern Bridge are designed to reduce environmental impact. This includes keeping the bridge as short and as low as possible to minimise visual impact on the landscape.
