Future rural house sales in Chichester could be driven by schoolchildren
The competition runs until Wednesday 24 July and organisers say that the aim is to get young people thinking about housing design, what homes are going to look like in the future, and how they will affect our daily lives.
To launch the competition a group of Key Stage 2 pupils from East Wittering Primary School visited the site of a new rural development which will eventually contain 17 new homes in the village.
Councillor Carol Purnell, Cabinet Member for Housing and Planning at Chichester District Council commented that it was great that local children were able to visit the housing development to learn about planning and construction issues.
She added, “Affordable housing developments like these will make it possible for current and future generations to remain in the communities they grew up in.”
