Mayfields would bring many benefits for existing residents in West Sussex.
Mayfields will provide all round health, economic and social benefits. Alongside those detailed above, Mayfields will also deliver:
- Walkable neighbourhoods
- Flexible buildings and spaces
- A community trust
- A disturbance package for those directly impacted
- Innovative job opportunities through purpose designed, flexible buildings and spaces
- Special purchase discounts for local people
We are in discussion with providers about the possibility of a new grammar school, which would be open to everyone locally.
Mayfields will have a strong equestrian focus, with many new bridleways being provided and a whole range of equestrian cottage industries being supported within the town.
We will deliver a modern, well-funded public transport system which will make it easier for people to travel between Henfield, Brighton, Burgess Hill and other local transport hubs.
Avoiding add-on development
A new settlement can deliver 10,000 homes in one place, rather than 20 add on developments of 500 homes each, which disfigure existing towns and villages and place a burden on existing community infrastructure.
10,000 homes can be delivered at Mayfields and will only directly impact upon 100 existing properties, all of whom will be offered generous compensation packages.
