An application from Madestein UK Limited, which specializes in producing fresh lettuce and herbs, for new facilities in the southwest corner of the former Tangmere Airfield site was discussed by Chichester District Council’s planning committee back in June 2018.
Members of the committee decided to permit the scheme subject to a section 106 legal agreement being agreed with the applicant.
However, there have been delays in finalizing the s106 and the applicant has since amended the originally proposed width of the internal spine road connecting the new development to City Fields Way.
The proposed development comprises a single large glasshouse, with harvesting, packaging and cold store facilities alongside two reservoirs.
The amended spine road would be reduced from 6m to 4.1m in width for the majority of its length. On corners, the road would be widened to 6m to allow safe negotiation by HGVs and a total of six passing places would be provided at 150m intervals along the road.
