NOVEMBER 29 2020 – “HOMES ENGLAND PURCHASE IFIELD GOLF CLUB LAND” [WITH PUBLIC MONEY – OUR MONEY AS TAXPAYERS]

“HOMES ENGLAND PURCHASE IFIELD GOLF CLUB LAND” [WITH TAXPAYERS MONEY]

CBC have been notified by Homes England that they have purchased the Ifield Golf Club land. Here is their wording:

‘I am writing to you to confirm that Homes England has acquired Ifield Golf Club on the
25th November 2020. As part of the acquisition, the Golf Club members voted to
support the surrender of their lease as part of the transaction to allow redevelopment.
Ifield Golf Club is a key part of our West of Ifield proposals and demonstrates one of
Homes England’s key missions which is to unlock land and to get more homes built
where they are needed. The acquisition will ensure we can build new homes that are
needed now and over the next few years subject to allocation in the Horsham Local
Plan and obtaining the necessary planning approvals.
As you will know from our ongoing discussions and pre-application meetings, part of
Ifield Golf Course is likely to be developed for a secondary school in the early phases
which will meet the much needed demand for educational provision in both Horsham
and Crawley. Homes England is working with the Department of Education to
accelerate the delivery of the secondary school which will be at the core of this
sustainable community.’

We will post more information as and when we get it to keep Crawley and Ifield residents up to date with latest developments.
