Subject Matter of the Draft Supplementary Planning Documents

Mid Sussex District Council has adopted the Mid Sussex District Plan 2014-2031 which has replaced the 2004 Local Plan as the development plan for Mid Sussex District. In light of this, the

Mid Sussex Development and Infrastructure SPD (2006) is therefore being refreshed:

  • To ensure the SPD complies with all relevant national planning policy and guidance;
  • To update the document to ensure that it complies with the relevant policies in the District

Plan; and

  • To update the requirements for each type of contribution and the costs of these contributions.

Three separate documents have been prepared to replace the 2006 Development and

Infrastructure SPD:

  • A Development Infrastructure and Contributions SPD, which sets out the overall framework for the management of planning obligations;
  • An Affordable Housing SPD, which provides more detailed information on the requirements for on-site and off-site affordable housing provision, and
  • A Viability SPD which provides information on the viability assessment process.

The Development Infrastructure and Contributions SPD, Affordable Housing SPD and Viability SPD along with its supporting documents will be the subject of a six-week period of formal public consultation from Monday 9th April until Monday 21st May 2018.
