Ashberry Homes submits plans for 88-home development in Chichester

88 new homes could be developed in Chichester after Ashberry Homes submitted plans to the local council. 

Indeed, a 5.3-acre brownfield site off Shopwhyke Road, previously Portfield Quarry and UMA House, has been earmarked for the development of new houses and apartments, to be known as Indigo Park. 

Chichester District Council granted outline planning permission to develop the land last June.  

Detailed plans have now been submitted by Ashberry Homes – part of the Bellway group - to the council which would provide 77 properties for private sale and 11 affordable homes for local people through rent or shared ownership. 

Dan Bradbury, Regional Director of Bellway South London, said: “We have worked closely with the council to formulate a detailed plan to transform this brownfield site into a development providing much-needed new housing in the area. Our aim is to deliver a wide mix of homes at Indigo Park, from one-bedroom apartments to four-bedroom houses, to suit a range of buyers at all stages of the property ladder. We are committed to being part of this exciting regeneration project to bring new homes to the city.” 

The site is part of a wider area that has been designated for new housing in the Chichester Local Plan, having been most recently used as office for Tarmac Marine Dredging Ltd. The plan would see the creation of around 500 homes over 10 acres of employment land, plus a community centre, shops and outdoor space around the existing lakes. 

The housebuilder is set to contribute £230,120 towards improvement work on the nearby A27 as part of the planning agreement for the proposed development.  

Bradbury added: “We hope that our plans are approved in due course, so that we can begin construction work on the site to create a new thriving new community which will prove to be a positive addition to the lives of people of Chichester.”
