1. site allocation process- public consultation Autumn 2019
MSDC have prepared a draft Site Allocations Document which identifies new housing sites that are required to fulfill the District Plan's new housing quota up to the end of the plan period in 2031. Haywards Heath Golf Course is being considered for residential development as part of this process.
A draft list of 22 new residential development sites has just been released, along with an assessment of their suitability for development. A consultation period on the "draft list" of sites will be open to the general public to make their views known (in planning parlance this is called Regulation 18 – Issues and Options Consultation) between 9th October and 20th November.
Haywards Heath Golf Course has not been chosen as one of the 22 sites that will provide another 1,962 new homes. However, this decision is not set in stone and there may be representations made during the public consultation that change the composition of the draft list. As such it is important we make our views known in support of excluding the Golf Course. We will shortly be recommending you all write in to show your support. We will email you shortly with the details you should include.
2. Can you make a small donation to the campaign?
Thanks to your help we have already raised our initial target of £750 to cover campaign costs (website, flyers etc). We are now raising our target to £5,000 to help towards the cost of retaining a planning consultant, which is estimated to cost in the region of £14,500. The campaign has a number of major benefactors but it would be much appreciated by them if the cost could be shared with other local residents.
Please give whatever you can afford, however small, it all helps!
In the unlikely event we have a small surplus left at the end of the campaign we will donate it to a local charity.
