The Mid Sussex District Plan 2014-2031 was submitted to the Secretary of State in August 2016. An independent planning inspector, Jonathan Bore MRTPI was appointed to conduct an examination to determine whether the District Plan was sound. Examination hearings were held between November 2016 and February 2018.
Following the conclusion of the examination hearings, the Inspector has finished his report and this has now been published. The report is available to view at www.midsussex.gov.uk/districtplan.
The report concludes that the Mid Sussex District Plan 2014-2031 provides an appropriate basis for the planning of the District (i.e. is ‘sound’), provided that a number of Main Modifications are made to it.
All of the Main Modifications concern matters that were considered during the examination either at the hearing sessions or in writing. The Main Modifications were subject to public consultation over a six-week period at the end of 2017. The Inspector has recommended their inclusion in the Plan after considering all the representations made in response to consultation on them.
It is anticipated that the Mid Sussex District Plan 2014-2031 will be recommend for adoption by Council in due course.
