SHW, for the freeholder, has sold the land at Friars Oak, London Road, Hassocks for a new residential development.

The land will be developed by Taylor Wimpey, having been promoted through the Town Planning Process by Rydon Homes. The site is consented for 130 dwellings homes.


The seller said: “The advice provided by SHW has been invaluable over what has been an incredibly complex route to sale. The need to tunnel under the Brighton mainline railway, to replace a pedestrian level crossing with a safe and accessible new foot tunnel, being just one of the particular complexities in releasing the land for development.”
