Horsham District Council has sold land between Rascals Close and Shipley Road in Southwater for the sum of £1.7million.

The land was sold with planning permission from Horsham District Council for a development of at least 29 homes, of which 11 will be affordable rented accommodation.

The Leader of Horsham District Council, Ray Dawe, said: “The sale of this land by the Council will really help towards providing more much needed affordable rented housing in these difficult economic times while at the same time producing a reasonable financial return for the council tax payers of the District.

“I am delighted that we are able to do this and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those staff members who played a valuable part in assisting this process.”
