After being allocated for development after many years, construction on site began in Spring 2022 with Breheny Civil Engineeering being responsible for delivering a new spine road through the development connecting Harrier Lane and The Spinney.

Much of the infrastructure work undertaken by Breheny has been made possible through the award of Homes England funding to the Council from the Government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund. The construction of the road will be followed by the construction of 200 homes which is expected to begin around Spring 2023, managed by Wates Residential. The site is being developed in phases, up to the autumn of 2024, to provide 200 new homes with a mixture of houses, maisonettes and flats and with a combination of tenure options.

More information on the planned development can be found within the planning documents on Rother Council’s Planning Portal.

The Outline Planning Approval can be found under Ref.No. RR/2019/604/P.

The Reserved Matters Planning Approval can be found under Ref.No RR/2020/2307/P.

The recent variations to the Reserved Matters planning approval (ref RR/2020/2307/P) under the s73 planning application (ref RR/2022/1330/P) were approved by Rother District Council on 20th October 2022.

The application includes alterations to the elevations and floor plans of the dwellings, alteration to the access parking for the development and materials, and variation to the outline permission (reference RR/2019/604/P) construction phasing of the development.

The route of Public Footpath 76 across the site is currently closed to the public for health and safety reasons during the heavy construction activity on site. We are aiming to re-open the Footpath generally on its original route adjacent to the existing tree line between Fields 1 & 2 around early autumn 2023 with protected public access during the ongoing housebuilding activity.

We will regularly update our webpage on ongoing activity on site and have prepared a FAQ’s page for any further enquiries here.

If you have any queries about the current ongoing works to the road construction, please contact the Breheny Civil Engineering Site Agent, Mr Harayshan Pirabaharan, on Mob. 07399 528626.
