Fontwell Strategic Site



The Arun Local Plan 2011-2031 identifies a number of ‘Strategic Allocations’ which are areas of land (sites) that have been identified to provide residential and commercial development to meet local housing and employment needs throughout the plan period (2011-2031).

The Arun Local Plan 2011-2031 identifies the Fontwell strategic allocation, under policy H SP2c (SD6), as providing at least 400 dwellings over the plan period. The strategic allocation requires the design and layout of the allocation to integrate Fontwell with the existing urban area at Wandleys Close.

Please see below the information regarding the development.  We will provide updates to bring you the latest information.
