Introducing Mayfields

Mayfields is a unique new town for Sussex being promoted as an option for development through the Horsham Local Plan. Designed to create a better way of living for all generations by capturing the value of the land for social good, it will be a place where everyone can thrive together, set in beautiful surroundings with all the amenities for a sustainable, modern lifestyle.

Mayfield Market Towns Ltd is 50 per cent owned by Clarion Housing Group, which includes Clarion Housing – the largest housing association in the country. Affordable housing and quality of place are at the heart of these proposals, along with long term stewardship through a community trust. Mayfields will be a complete place to live, offering new jobs, schools, healthcare, a range of homes and quality of life.

  • Living and working in Mayfields

    By providing new homes and employment space together, Mayfields will be a place where people can live and work in the same town, creating a real sense of community.

    The proposals provide for a whole range of options, from shared workspaces and offices to a Makers’ Court for craft and small businesses, alongside a central area with shops, restaurants and cafes.

  • Connecting to the countryside

    The land at Mayfields is located to the north east of Henfield. These proposals aim to connect residents with the surrounding countryside through a rich network of new green and open spaces, around which new homes and communities will form.

    New bridleways and footpaths will link into the wider network, alongside spaces for play and improved natural habitats.

  • A sense of place and purpose

    The vision behind Mayfields is to provide the new homes and employment space required for local residents, as well as the facilities, services and infrastructure they need.

    By using Land Value Capture, we can retain more investment in these services – providing new schools, healthcare, community spaces and a lido, alongside planting hundreds of trees and training our own workforce to create jobs and skills in the community for years to come.
