YOUR VIEWS ARE IMPORTANT
This Amended Version of the Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared by Hassocks Parish Council and co-opted members of the community. It replaces the 2016 Consultation Neighbourhood Plan which has been formally withdrawn at the request of Mid Sussex District Council because the previous Plan did not provide enough housing to meet the requirement of the District Plan which was formally adopted by the District Council in March 2018.
This new Neighbourhood Plan sets out a vision for our Parish from 2014 until 2031. This is the period of the District Plan.
The aims of the Plan are to:
This Amended Plan takes full account of the higher housing requirement for Hassocks set out in the District Plan. The Strategic Site for 500 new homes on the Land North of Clayton Mills is included in the Plan. The inclusion of this site, together with the other sites which already have planning permission, such as Saxon Mills and the Hassocks Golf Club, ensures that the Parish can fully meet the District Plan Housing Requirement for Hassocks.
There is no need to allocate anymore land for residential development in the Plan Period.
The Public Consultation on the Plan is now underway and is open for another month until the 18th of February. Please take the time to have a look at it. Your views are very important to us.
