Interested in smallholdings?
West Sussex County Council has a small number of smallholding
estates, the majority of which are located within close proximity
of the coast. These smallholdings are predominantly
horticultural but there are also some agricultural holdings within
our portfolio. All of these holdings are currently leased
to individuals or under farm tenancy agreements. Any
smallholdings that become available will be advertised in local
newspapers and also nationally in publications such as 'The Grower'
or 'Farmers Weekly'.
All of our horticultural/agricultural estate is managed by our
consultants, Strutt & Parker. Unfortunately, it is not
possible for applicants to be placed on a waiting list. Further
information relating to our smallholdings can be obtained from Ann
Campbell in our Estates Management Team on 01243 752241, or you can
& Parker through their website.
Any general enquiries, such as land ownership information,
should be directed to the Land and Property Information team on
