English Partnerships to develop army base

National regeneration agency English Partnerships is looking for a development partner to develop the Roussillon Barracks site in Chichester, which it recently bought from the Ministry of Defence.

The former base of the Military Police has been ear-marked for a residential development as part of the Partnerships’ drive to return surplus public land to community use.

English Partnerships expect to build between 200-300 code 4 homes on the 5 ha site, along with community facilities.

The land sits adjacent to the former Graylingwell Hospital site, currently being developed by English Partnerships with Linden Homes and Downland.

English Partnerships southern regional director David Edwards said: “This is an outstanding site and a practical demonstration of the Government’s Housing Green Paper by unlocking more surplus land to meet housing needs.”
