New Ringmer homes on the way, as plans are approved

16 August 2018

ringmer planProposals for 110 much-needed new homes in the village of Ringmer, East Sussex have been given the go-ahead by local planners.

The plans, which were put forward by local housebuilder Bovis Homes, will see a range of one to five-bedroom properties delivered on land off Bishops Lane. They include a total of 44 homes designated as affordable properties to be managed by a housing association.

The reserved matters approval was granted by Lewes District Council after the site received initial outline planning approval in January 2016.

David Dodds, Associate Design Director for Bovis Homes’ South East region, said: “We’re excited to have been given the green light to deliver these much-needed new homes to the community and look forward to starting work.

“It comes after an extensive period of consultation with local residents, parish and county councils and other stakeholders, and we’re confident the homes will make a positive contribution to the existing community.”

Alongside housing, Bovis Homes will also deliver areas of public open space as well as making a financial contribution to the local authority through the Community Infrastructure Levy. This investment will be used to fund infrastructure projects locally.

Construction of the new homes is set to start in early 2019, with the first residents moving in during the autumn.
