This report seeks Cabinet endorsement of arrangements for the delivery of the Horsham Enterprise Park scheme on land owned by the County Council. The arrangements will include establishing a Development Agreement through the procurement of a development partner, who would carry out commercial and residential development in accordance with the approved outline planning permission for the site; and to fund and carry out enabling works to aid the de-risking of the site.
The main objectives to be achieved are to develop an enterprise park that will retain and promote high-value employment in Horsham and the county; and to generate a financial return on the Council’s investment.
