Affordable Housing for the Midhurst Area

OUR PROPERTIES

Wyndham Court off Lamberts Lane, Midhurst

The Midhurst Community Land Trust bought their first two houses in Midhurst, the first such CLT purchase in Sussex in 2021. The tenancies of our houses off Lamberts Lane have been occupied for the past two years by families from the area and we are delighted that they are very happy in their new homes in Wyndham Court.

The houses were developed by award-winning Metis Homes who have a successful history of developments in the area.

OTHER SITES

We are currently having detailed discussions on two sites in Easebourne. As you will imagine some of these projects take time to become reality and rely on planning.

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.

These projects only come about through the support and commitment that the South Downs National Park Authority and Chichester District Council to help us obtain these key assets for the benefit of Midhurst and the area around it. Indeed, our properties in Lamberts Lane, built by Metis, only came about through the strong support we had from both SNDP and CDC.

A further set of applications, that also contain affordable homes, by Metis Homes are being planned. Metis Homes Managing Director Adam O’Brien said in a recent meeting we had with him, “We are keen to continue to deliver more affordable homes for the CLT following the success of the first units we built for you at Lamberts Lane”.

When we have some more specific information and timings we plan to hold regular Town Hall Meetings to keep the community up to date. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued support.

Land Wanted

We are always keen to hear about land available for the construction of affordable homes for local people.
