July 2020

For several years Hassocks Parish Council and members of the community have been working on a Neighbourhood Plan for our Parish.  Finally after overcoming setbacks and challenges and with a great deal of hard work, the Plan was finished.  On March  5th 2020 a Referendum was held and 98.4% of the residents who voted,  did so in favour of the Hassocks Neighbourhood Plan.

At the meeting of Full Council on 24th June 2020, Mid Sussex District Council resolved to ‘make’ the Hassocks Neighbourhood Development Plan 2014-2031.

This means that the Hassocks Neighbourhood Development Plan has been brought into legal force, and forms part of the statutory Development Plan for Hassocks Parish.
