Housing site gets approved for town

Have your say

A NEW housing development in a national park has been approved.

Work on the Larcombe Road site in Petersfield is due to commence in the coming months following detailed planning approval granted by South Downs National Park planning committee.

Tracey Wardell, senior land buyer for Persimmon Homes South Coast, said: ‘This site was allocated for housing in the Petersfield Neighbourhood Plan and so we are pleased to have achieved planning approval for development, after close liaison with the local authority and other consultees.

‘The properties have been carefully designed to reflect the architectural character of the neighbourhood and will bring much-needed new homes to this market town.’
