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
