Plan for new town outside Brighton to meet housing need

First published in News by

Developers say that a new 10,000 home town can meet the employment growth and housing need of Brighton and Hove while helping the city’s digital economy to expand.

Proponents of the proposed Mayfield market town near to Sayers Common claim the 30,000 population town will help alleviate housing pressures in neighbouring towns and cities.

And they argue that a new town with its own infrastructure is a less “harmful” way to meet housing demand in the county than a series of add-ons of thousands of homes to existing towns such as Horsham.

But opponents to the scheme say the proposed development is “unwanted” and “unneeded” and has already blighted the community before a brick has been laid.

Director Lee Newlyn told The Argus that the site would not expand beyond 10,000 homes and was not designed as a commuter town to support London workers.

Instead new residents will work in the town itself or commute to Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Lewes and Brighton and Hove.

The town will also have facilities to allow Brighton digital companies to expand.

Mr Newlyn said: “A new town location here was the recommendation of consultations for Horsham, Crawley and Mid Sussex councils in 2010, we didn’t fly in from Mars with this suggestion.

“The size of the town is designed around the size of population for an academy.

“It is designed around walkable neighbourhoods, we want people to be able to walk to nearby facilities and reduce the need for a private car.”

Developers say they won’t submit a planning application for the proposal but are hoping to be incorporated into the local plans of Brighton and Hove, Mid Sussex, Horsham and Crawley which are currently in the long-drawn out process of gaining planning inspectorate approval.

However, the team are still hopeful of starting building in two to three years pending council permission in a project that would take 20 years to complete.

Anthony Watts Williams, a 20 year resident of Wineham and founder of Locals Against Mayfield Building Sprawl, said: “Two district councils don’t want this, two MPs don’t want this and local people don’t want this.

“There will be seven villages that will be completely disrupted and the wildlife will be lost.

“If I thought this had no chance of ever happening I would not have used my time forming this group but these are powerful London businessmen and two peers sitting in the House of Lords behind these plans.”

If the city is digital then people don't need to live here.
Same with the unis. I am baffled as to why unis need 5,000 students here when they should be creating virtual unis enabling students to remain at home with parents saving the huge rental costs. The age of the student experience is in the past as e fees have made this untenable and also working in business isn't like that anymore. Most of us work in businesses where you not desk, have no offices, home work, rent space for a week etc. business is a fluid, virtual experience.
I work in a business in which many employees continually learn and do degrees at unis with virtual lectures, web learning, screen sharing and that's usual business practice for business itself with meetings. Travelling is frowned upon for efficiency and safety reasons.
All this continual mobility of humans is unnecessary and rather weird if you are promoting yourself as a digital location.
Silly.

Creating new towns is perhaps inevitable, but I shudder to think of the sprawl of Legoland houses this developer will build on our magnificent countryside before running off to the next ghastly project. We need a community solution. In Germany and Holland I have visited high density self-build projects. These type of developments foster a more sympathetic development and a thriving community with long term commitment. Maxwell's Ghost is quite right that the need to travel is reducing, so flexible buildings for mixed use are key. However, it is clear that the developer is just building a dead commuter dorm and most will commute to London (does anyone buy the rubbish about just commuting to local towns!). Time to get rid of our major housing developers, they have let us down for too long.

Agreed - and those commuting to London will struggle to get on the already jam-packed trains whilst those commuting to Brighton, Horsham, Crawley etc will do so by car put even more stress on the road networks!
The elephant in the room that no politicians wants to talk about is the over-population of the south-east which will get even worse if the expansion of Gatsick goes ahead!!

"...can meet the employment growth and housing need of Brighton and Hove" We have green taxes to cut consumption and prevent global warming, whilst running open-borders, which is the real cause of this. There was no 'need', in fact population falls in developed countries. The 'greenest' measure of all would be to curb population growth. which will inevitably put price pressure on everything, housing, energy, food, water, commodities, as the Third World naturally demand the same standard of living as the rest of the world. We are managed by idiots!
