From Party Conference(s) to draft allocations…….

by Jo Hanslip

I had originally intended to do this blog on the planning outcomes emanating from the Conservative party conference and wider Government related matters, but given the utter malaise that the Government (and we) find ourselves in I thought it best to change tack!

As such I thought I would look at a more stable matters and so have examined the emerging site allocations included in the Mid Sussex District Local Plan.

The draft document was considered at Scrutiny Committee for Planning, Economic Growth and Net Zero on the 18th October 2022 seeking the Plan be published for consultation for 6 weeks in November.

The key aspects of the plan include a large number of draft allocations, including:

Strategic locations at:

1,400 dwellings to the west of Burgess Hill
