In a press release West Sussex County Council have announced that they have agreed to buy the vacant Novartis site and will create a health and life sciences business park there. It will be funded by high quality housing. The key points are:

  • The unlisted art deco building will be saved and converted for residential use
  • The avenue of cedar trees will be retained
  • All other buildings will be removed if not already gone
  • An estimate of up to 1000 jobs will be created
  • Two thirds of the area will be the business park
  • One third of the area will be high quality housing
  • The work will be completed by summer 2016 (sounds optimistic!)
  • The development has been welcomed by Horsham District Council
