The catchment of St. Faiths Primary School brings Horsham St Faith and Newton St Faith into a village cluster under policy 7.4. St Faiths Primary School has some capacity. The site is not entirely ‘landlocked’ but the available land for expansion is limited.
It is considered that as well as existing allocations and windfall development, approximately 20-50 new homes are appropriate for the Horsham and Newton St Faith cluster. Horsham St Faith and Newton St Faith contains a range of services including a primary school, village hall, food shop and public transport.
One site is identified as a preferred option, providing for 50 new homes in the cluster. There is one carried forward residential allocation for 60 homes and a total of 6 additional dwellings with planning permission on small sites. This gives a total deliverable housing commitment for the cluster of 124 homes between 2018 – 2038.
All new and carried forward allocations are expected to address standard requirements associated with development. These vary from place to place, but are likely to include mitigations for flood risk (as well as SUDs), highways improvements, safeguarding of minerals resources, land remediation, measures to protect the environment, biodiversity, and landscape intrusion.
