Michael Jones Commercial negotiate record £15m deal improving infrastructure for local community

There’s been some great news for the local community in the Field Place district of Worthing as amended plans for the second phase of The Causeway development have been approved to allow for a long awaited medical centre expansion.

Planning for the original scheme which was due to consist of 81 apartments with commercial space on the ground floor was granted last year but following advanced talks with the NHS, these plans were revised to allow for a 1,000 square metre medical facility which would ease the pressure on the local over-capacity surgery and meet the needs of the existing and future residents in the area.

The amended plans meant that the number of apartments were reduced by seven to create the floor space required for the new facility which is subject to funding being acquired by NHS Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group.

Michael Jones Commercial played a key role in overseeing the planning process in response to feedback from local residents and the existing surgery’s long search for new premises and are delighted with the outcome.

Steve Berrett, Commercial Director commented that ‘We have been aware of the increasing resource pressures that the local authority has been facing for some time now and are delighted that by working with Rocco Homes, we have provided the opportunity to supply the necessary infrastructure to support the growing local community’.

The commercial team at Michael Jones also played a key role in successfully negotiating a groundbreaking £15m deal between local developer Rocco Homes and an institutional buyer who will provide housing under a private rented scheme which will be available towards the end of next year

    This is not about Michael Jones but one of their employee, Rob Stewards . Shout out you man and well done for the great service . Much appreciated. Keep it up . Rob was in charge of sorting thing out between my last landlord and myself … More at the end of the tenancy and helping return my deposit . For everyone renting , you know how it is always trying to get that money back. The landlords are always trying to make up stories in order to hold a chunk of your money . I cannot thank Rob enough for his outstanding wisdom in helping us to reach an agreement and avoiding dispute resolution . Although in the middle of the case , Rob went on holiday and things were not resolved as one of his colleague or rather manager tried . And my gut feeling was surely , Rob will get it sorted after his holiday and I was right . He got a compromise in no time .Many thanks Rob . God bless you and keep up the good work .

    I approached Michael Jones, letting Agents, ( amongst many services on offer), in order to locate and occupy a rental property for 6 months for two adults and a small dog.It was’nt easy finding accommodation for my dog....After a couple … More of dead ends, I found and made my interest known to Michael Jones.From that point on, the process , whilst tricky for someone who had not rented before, was made easier and concluded by several team members of the agents. All of the solved problems were caused by my lack of understanding, but sorted by the letting agents.Special mention to Lisa , Of the progression Section, who steered me through several difficulties, and delivered the property for me , and in time....She was, I know, working until very late at night to ensure the transaction went smoothly.I would recommend Michael Jones, if you are looking for temporary accommodation, they are professional and capable agents.My thanks to all involved.Arthur Russell
