Mid Sussex Delay Publication of New Development Sites
Updated: Oct 8, 2018
MSDC is currently looking to add or "allocate" sites to their 5 year housing land supply. This is called the Site Allocation process. This is significant because the process allows new sites, not currently allocated (like Haywards Heath Golf Club), to be considered for development.
A report to the Scrutiny Committee states the timetable for the Site Allocation process is delayed due to the higher than anticipated workload in assessing the new sites. The process, including the first formal public consultation on the new list of sites, has now been put back from Autumn 2018 to Summer 2019.
As a result we now expect a planning application to be lodged in Summer 2019. There are circumstances that could see an application submitted earlier but this currently looks unlikely.
