More than 130 people visited an exhibition of plans for a new 500 home development near Copthorne at the Copthorne Village Hall on Friday (October 11).
Visitors were shown the plans for the site to the west of Copthorne by property developer St Modwen and they were given an opportunity to make comments. The plans state that around 60 per cent of the site will be undeveloped and preserved as landscaping and open space. Plans also state a new residential care home will be developed and around 30 per cent of the houses will be affordable homes .
The next stage is for St Modwen to analyse the feedback given during the consultation period and to submit a planning application before the end of the year. To view the plans visit http://copthornevillagewest.com/
