Lancing Ikea: first structures in place to link the A27 to the New Monks Park development Brighton News

PHOTOS show the first signs of a structure under construction at a major development site for a new store and 600 homes.

The steel beams installed near the A27 at Lancing will form a new access bridge to the New Monks Park development.

A motorway bridge will link the site to the A27 with a new four-armed roundabout.

The major development will see the area transformed, with an Ikea store, a 28-hectare park and land for a new primary school, as well as hundreds of homes and apartments.

The plot of land where the beams are built is near the former gypsy and traveler site of Withy Patch, which had been used to house travelers since the late 1980s.


Last year, the developer agreed to pay for residents to be moved from the site to new land to make way for the new access road.

The first homes in the development went on sale to potential buyers earlier this year, as construction progressed on the first batch of homes near the Mash Barn Estate.

However, contract restrictions mean that a maximum of 249 dwellings can be occupied before the completion of road works on the A27 roundabout.


Cala Homes said prices range from £ 335,000 to almost £ 700,000, depending on the size of the property.

A three bedroom detached house costs between £ 485,000 and £ 525,000, while a four bedroom detached property with garage and parking will set you back £ 690,000.

New owners could eventually move in by the fall, subject to the progress of the work.

Cala Homes, who developed the program in collaboration with New Monks Farm Ltd, describes the development as a “breathtaking new residential community” and said there was great interest in the properties.

The residential development, located just over a mile and a half from Lancing Beach, will also include nearby play areas and a community center.
