Affordable Housing for the Midhurst Area

Projects

Midhurst Community Land Trust is currently seeking opportunities for land acquisition that would be suitable for the development of sustainable housing.  As soon as information becomes available on our developments and the availability of accommodation, we will publish it on our housing and accommodation page and through our Facebook page.

We are in the process of negotiation on several fronts with some four projects looking very hopeful.  For confidentially reasons we cannot give the location and detail but a brief description of three of them is as follows.

Current Prospects

Plot 1

We are working alongside a developer to deliver their section 106 affordable housing quota and are consequently in the process of buying two 2-bedroom houses in Midhurst that were due for completion about February/March 2021 but will now be delayed until summer 2021.

Plot 2

We are in negotiations to refurbish a large building that will, subject to planning consent, be converted into 3 two bedroom and 1 one-bedroom apartments.

Plot 3

We are close to agreeing terms to buy a small brownfield site in Midhurst and are hopeful this will be completed soon.  If all goes through successfully there would be the potential, subject to planning consent and finance, to build up to 6 one-bedroom flats.
