Steele Close Homes Launch
Representatives of West Chiltington Parish Council joined with Rural Housing Trust Limited to launch the sale of 6 new homes for shared ownership. People with a strong connection to the village will have first priority to buy the 4 two bedroom and 2 three bedroom houses. Completion is expected in June. These houses are part of a development of 14 new affordable homes being built on land off Steele Close within walking distance of the primary school and village centre. Chairman of the Parish Council, Councillor Marshall Monks, toured the site with RHT Chairman Christopher Hobden, and was delighted to see the good size of the rooms. For information on price and availability applicants should contact Arun Estates shared ownership team on 01634 921802 or email [email protected]
Casual Vacancy filled
Following a recent casual vacancy, we were very fortunate at the January meeting to have two applicants for one position of Parish Councillor, which means that we are again at full capacity with 13 sitting councillors.
