Homes England acquires site in Worthing for 250 new homes

Homes England has acquired Teville Gate, a pivotal brownfield site in Worthing, West Sussex.

Homes England plans to regenerate the area and create around 250 new homes.

Teville Gate is located in the town centre, near to the town’s train station, and in close proximity to bus routes and local facilities.

The intention for the site is to create a sustainable development with well-designed open spaces and improved pedestrian and cycle routes.

Homes England has agreed to acquire the site immediately, to then lease it back to Worthing Borough Council while it carries out the preparatory work, ensuring that the site can be used for other purposes whilst plans for the site are developed.

Alison Crofton, Chief Property Officer, said:

”Homes England has worked closely with Worthing Borough Council over the past year to agree a united approach. We are pleased to be working in partnership with Worthing Borough Council, to create a scheme that will enable the delivery of a development that meets the needs of the local community.

”Teville Gate is key regeneration area for Worthing and a challenging brownfield site that has the potential to have a transformational impact on the town.

Cllr Dr Beccy Cooper, the leader of Worthing Borough Council, said:

”We have chosen to partner with Homes England as the catalyst for the regeneration of Teville Gate into a vibrant, sustainable community hub featuring genuinely affordable homes that our citizens need.

”Our ambition remains the creation of sustainable, high-quality and genuinely affordable homes for our residents. We believe Homes England is the ideal partner to realise those ambitions for Worthing.

”I’m excited that within months this barren land will be back in use for the community while the work to unlock the potential of this site begins.

Teville Gate was bought by the council for in 2021 to drive forward its regeneration and is the first site in the south east to be purchased by Homes England through the Brownfield Infrastructure and Land Fund (BIL).
