Revised District Plan Consultation

Mid Sussex District Council is now consulting on a revised draft of the District Plan. It will cover the period 2021 - 2039.

The Consultation runs from the 7th November to the 19th December 2022.

The revised Plan will include housing allocations for 8,169 dwellings throughout the District to meet the growing demand for housing from population growth. In Ashurst Wood it is proposed to allocate one site, for 8-12 dwellings at The Paddocks, Lewes Road.

Please note that this site will be in addition to the allocation for 12 houses in Hammerwood Road, which has been allocated in the recent Site Allocations Document.

For more information, see MSDC's press release below.

The revised Plan can also be seen below.
The policy relating to the proposed site in Ashurst Wood is DPH17 at page 145.

Paper copies will be available at the District Council's offices in Haywards Heath, at libraries and at the Village Council's Office.
