Mayfields would bring many benefits for existing residents in West Sussex.
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.
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
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 100 existing properties, all of whom will be offered generous compensation packages.
