Work begins on development of 74 new homes

Work has begun on a development of 74 new homes in East Grinstead.

Fairview New Homes is building its new development, which will be named Meridian Village, on land to the south of The Old Convent, off Moat Road.

The scheme was given the green light by Mid Sussex District Council’s planning committee last year.

The first homes are set to go on sale later this year, with the first residents set to move into their new homes from November.

Fairview will contribute more than £765,000 as part of the Section 106 planning agreement for Meridian Village, which will include a £347,000 contribution towards junction improvements.

The contributions will also include £168,448 to fund education locally and £33,636 for healthcare provision.
