Update on our Proposals: July 2021

In May 2020, Metis Homes undertook a public consultation on its emerging proposals for The Former Brickworks and WSCC Depot, Midhurst to gain feedback from the local community and stakeholders on its plans to develop this allocated site with high-quality new homes in accordance with the relevant South Downs Local Plan policies.

Following the submission of a planning application for the site, which sought to respond to the comments received during the public consultation and feedback from planning officers at SDNPA via an extensive pre-application exercise, the application was refused earlier this year due to concerns from planning officers at SDNPA regarding some elements of the scheme.

Metis Homes remains committed to working collaboratively with SDNPA to deliver a high-quality scheme on this allocated site and has recently re-submitted a new planning application in July 2021 which seeks to respond to the reasons for refusal. The new application for the site can be viewed via SDNPA’s online planning portal by searching the application reference number: SDNP/21/03448/FUL

If you have any question regarding Metis Homes’ planning application for the site, please do not hesitate to contact the project team via or 0800 298 7040, and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.
