Partnership with community group in Chichester to benefit homebuyers
We are delighted to announce our newly established partnership with the Chichester Community Development Trust (CCDT), a charitable organisation spearheading a number of local projects that promote wellbeing and community spirit across the city.
The partnership will provide homebuyers at New Fields, our community in Chichester, the opportunity to access a range of discounts and local facilities.
As a customer completes on their new home with us, we will notify them of the available membership, offering to pay for it on their behalf.
Examples of the exciting discounts and amenities include:
Reduced room/hall hire of various buildings in the area
Preferential booking for events such as comedy nights, dinners, cookery events.
Preferential booking of Nursery places
Use of the Wellness suite and free treatments for those in need
The CCDT is also working on a number of coming soon projects, including:
Coffee shop and community shop
Studio space for local artists
Cara Lazarevic, Sales Manager for New Fields in the Southern Counties, comments: “The Chichester Community Development Trust is working on so many exciting projects and partnerships with local businesses across the area so we are delighted to provide buyers at New Fields with the opportunity to access its growing network of offers and facilities.
“The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of community and this membership with help residents meet people in the local area, get outdoors and socialise, all while supporting local businesses.”
New Fields launched in January 2020 and represents our first-ever community of homes in Chichester. Located less than a 30-minute walk to the city centre, residents are only a stone’s throw from Chichester’s eclectic mix of shops, eateries, highly rated schools and cultural assets. Meanwhile, residents are only a 20-minute drive to Chichester Harbour AONB and several beaches along the Southern coast, including Bracklesham Bay and West Wittering.
Taken from our award-winning Heritage Collection, the homes at New Fields benefit from bright and modern interiors, paired with traditional Arts & Crafts exteriors, with gable ended roofs and pretty brick detailing. Currently available to buy are three- and four-bedroom homes, starting in price from £364,950. A select number are available to first-time buyers under the revised Help to Buy scheme.
We are heavily investing in Chichester and West Sussex, an indication of the area’s increasing popularity amongst homebuyers. A planning application for an additional development to the north of Chichester is currently under consideration, and we recently launched two communities in Barnham and Yapton. Likewise, we submitted a joint planning application for the former Ford Airfield with Wates Developments, earmarked for 1,500 new homes and brand-new community facilities and infrastructure.
