Horsham Development Opportunity (former Novartis site)

Plans to regenerate an 18.6-acre brownfield site in Horsham, West Sussex, are moving forward. The site was acquired by West Sussex County Council from global healthcare company Novartis in December 2016, and the council is committed to ensuring the site makes a significant contribution to creating and supporting high value employment.

The site is well connected, within close proximity of London, and convenient for major international gateways through London Gatwick (just 20 minutes away) and London Heathrow airports.


Public consultations on the masterplan for the site are planned for September and October 2018, and feasibility and design work has been taking place to develop proposals for a mixed-use business and residential development to meet local needs. 


The evolving masterplan sets out the ambition for the park. Approximately two-thirds of the site is currently earmarked for commercial development and one-third for residential development, which will include affordable housing. The commercial development zone is likely to provide Grade A office accommodation and space for business start-ups. An existing 1930s Art Deco building on the site will be retained.


An outline planning application is due to be submitted to Horsham District Council by the end of this year. Work on the site is not expected to begin before 2021 and could take around five years to complete.
