Proposal for Snapes Corner

Proposal for Snapes Corner, Storrington Road (Gladmans Developments)

This site is the subject of a major housing application which Thakeham Parish and Horsham District Council are strongly resisting.  The location of this site is also shown in the map above.  It is a greenfield site and part of the open space separating the built-up areas of Thakeham and Storrington.   In late 2015 application DC/15/2374 was submitted by Gladmans Developments to construct 107 houses on this site.  Thakeham Parish Council strongly objected to this proposal (see full statement), which was subsequently refused by Horsham District Council (for these reasons).

Gladmans have subsequently (July 2016) submitted a further revised application (DC/16/1489) for up to 60 houses on the same site.  Thakeham Parish Council has strongly objected again, on the same key grounds as the previous application.  This site is not included as a developable location in the draft Thakeham Neighbourhood Plan, and is designated as ‘non-developable’ in the current HDC Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA).  HDC subsequently refused this application.   The appeal of HDC’s refusal of DC/15/2374 is due to be heard by an Inspector in April 2017.  Further news relating to this proposal will be posted here when available.
