This 'District Deal' sets out a joint undertaking between Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council to combine resources to deliver shared priorities, providing new homes and jobs in the district and seeking to secure new funds.
The shared strategic growth priorities are based on those set out in the Horsham Place Plan.
West and North of Horsham Developments
Implementation of the comprehensive infrastructure packages that support the delivery of housing and economic growth at those locations and integrate them with Horsham Town.
Horsham Town Centre
Creation and delivery of a new town centre vision to promote and sustain Horsham town centre and to maximise investment opportunities for identified development sites in the town.
A joint approach to comprehensive redevelopment, potentially including the Fire and Rescue Service, Ambulance and Police stations, courts, youth centre and training centre, to create opportunities for re-provision of existing services off-site and to utilise development potential to deliver an additional mix of uses including housing and employment.
Horsham Enterprise Park
The development of a new employment and residential quarter in the heart of Horsham on the former Novartis site on Parsonage Road. Outline planning permission is in place for 25,000 square meters of new employment space and 300 new homes, with related community facilities, cycle and pedestrian links, landscaping and public domain works.
