Community Land Trust houses get financial boost

The building of 12 dwellings in Mayflower Way for Angmering Community Land Trust moved a step closer this week when Arun District Council granted the Trust £582,531.96 of Section 106 contributions from Crayfern Homes who are building 24 properties on the other side of the road in a development called The Millstones. This contribution is in lieu of Crayfern building affordable homes on their site. The Trust's aims are to provide low-cost housing for rent for local people. Their 12 properties in Mayflower Way will consist of 8 affordable rented homes and 4 shared ownership homes. You can read more about this development here.

The Trust has issued a tender to 5 companies and the closing date for their return is 9 June. They hope that building will commence on the Mayflower Way site in September this year. The Trust is also building 3 affordable rent houses, comprising two terraced houses with two bedrooms, and a three bedroom semi-detached house at Swallows Gate off Dappers Lane.

A259 roadwords delayed

West Sussex County Council announced this week that the completion date for the project has now been pushed back 3-4 months to Winter 2022 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Progress had particularly slowed at the Angmering part of the scheme, principally because UK Power Networks is required to remove and replace a high voltage electricity cable in order work could continue. However, UK Power Networks has had to prioritise emergency work such as getting supplies to test centres, including the Nightingale hospitals.

Archaeology tours of Water Lane building site

From February 2021, Thames Valley Archaeological Services (South) [TVAS] have been excavating part of the site south of Water Lane where the construction of houses is due to commence later in the year. Approximately 60cm of topsoil was initially removed to allow the excavations to commence. Their excavations only have covered the southern part of the building site, just north of The Spotted Cow PH, where prior geophysical surveys suggested excavations might prove more fruitful. On Saturday 24 April 2021, TVAS gave short tours of the site to the public prior to the completion of their work which is anticipated before the end of May. They also exhibited finds to date.

The finds help date the site from late-Iron Age to early-Roman. For more details of the excavations and photos, click here.

School plants 100 trees

Students at The Angmering School have planted 100 trees in the school grounds, with the help of the charity Concordia. The children in year seven helped plant ten different species as part of The Conservation Volunteers’ #IDigTrees campaign. Trees planted included goat willow, hazel, hawthorn and bird cherry. Concordia said it chose to partner with the school for this project as the two already have a close working relationship.

Fiona Callender, head of volunteering at Concordia, said: “How lovely to see people for real, be outdoors and to do some conservation. We have some very happy year-seven students, who are going to look after their trees for at least for the next 5 years.

Angmering students have benefited from Concordia’s NCS programme in the past, as well as the new wellbeing programme, designed to boost self-confidence and encourage self-care.

Old Chandlers' Site - Water Lane

McCarthy & Stone have announced, through a rather patchy leaflet drop in Angmering this week, that they have purchased the old Chandlers' garage site in Water Lane and that they intend to build an 'H'-shaped complex there comprising approx 33 one and two bedroom apartments and a large retail unit with apartments above it. Apartments can be occupied by people aged 60 or over and are provided for outright sale, as well as shared ownership, rent and part rent-part buy.

Vehicle and pedestrian access to the site will be provided via the existing entrance points on Water Lane and High Street to take cars and refuse vehicles safely off the road. The proposals include a total of 38 car parking spaces, comprising 24 residential spaces, 2 spaces for Eachways and 12 for proposed retail unit.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, McCarthy & Stone are holding a consultation on their proposals in the form of a virtual exhibition which can be seen at https://mccarthyandstoneconsultation.co.uk/angmering/virtual-exhibition/

The consultation period runs until 16 April 2021 after which McCarthy & Stone will be developing a planning application for submission to Arun District Council.
