Sigma acquires housing site in Barns Green, West Sussex

Horsham-based Sigma Homes has secured a 4.7-acre site in the West Sussex village of Barns Green, with the plan to deliver 32 homes as part of a £16m development scheme.

Designed by Worthing-based ECE Architecture, the 32 homes will include one-, two-, three- and four- bedroom apartments and houses.

12 of these properties are allocated for affordable housing, providing an above policy 37.5% allocation. 

Geoff Potton, CEO at Sigma Homes, said: “We are delighted to have secured another prime site in such a highly sought-after village, which is less than five miles from Horsham.

“With so many development proposals in the district currently held up by planning and pre-construction delays, this will be one of the first schemes to be delivered within Horsham District which achieves a water neutrality solution.

“The plans sensitively respond to the site characteristics and will result in a high quality, sustainable addition to Barns Green.

“This mix of open market and affordable homes — suitable for first time buyers, families, and downsizers — are much-needed to meet local housing demand.

“As with all our developments, this scheme will be constructed utilising timber-frame technology and a range of other ‘green’ features including grey water recycling, to enable residents to significantly reduce their water usage, carbon footprint and energy bills.

“We are immensely proud of the reputation for quality homes in prime locations that Sigma Homes have become synonymous with.”
