People have been invited to a public exhibition of plans to build 1,510 homes in Horley.

Proposals for the North West Sector development will on display at Horley Methodist Church, Victoria Road from 3pm to 8pm on Wednesday (July 22).

Reigate and Banstead Borough Council gave outline planning permission to build the homes, a primary school, neighbourhood centre and public open spaces between the A217 Reigate Road and Meath Green Lane in December 2014.

The public exhibition will show a consortium of developers’ proposals for the first phase of development, which will see 600 homes built.

People were invited to find out more about the scheme and discuss the plans with the consortium’s project team.

A spokesman said Crest Nicholson, Fabrica by A2Dominion, Charles Church and Taylor Wimpey was drawing up a reserved matters planning application for the site.

Comments received from those who attend the event will help shape the development proposals before a planning application is finalised for submission to the council.

Steve Coggins, Regional Development Director South for A2 Dominion says: “As a considerate and responsible consortium of developers, we want to give people the chance to have their say on development plans for their area – and this is why we are inviting the local community to find out more about our proposals for phase one at North West Sector.

“The site already benefits from outline planning permission for residential development and our proposed planning application will deal with detailed matters of design which have not been established at outline stage.

“We are confident that this scheme will provide an attractive and sustainable development of high-quality homes to meet a range of requirements – including affordable properties for local people in housing need. Our plans also include the construction of a primary school, a neighbourhood centre and public open spaces.

“Anyone who comes along to the public exhibition on Wednesday 22nd July will be able to speak to members of our project team to find out more about our proposals and provide their feedback to help us develop and refine the emerging scheme.”

People can access the information displayed at the event online at www.northwesthorley.co.uk from Wednesday, July 22.
