Village Design Statement


A Village Design Statement (VDS) has now been completed, and is available to view on this website.

A Village Design Statement Group, made up of local residents and representatives of the Parish Council, has worked, under the Chairmanship of Phil Mead, to produce the document, which will help to shape the way Hassocks develops in future. Public meetings and workshops were held to gather the views of local residents, which have been incorporated into the Statement.

A Supplementary Planning Document also had to be produced and this has now been adopted by Mid Sussex District Council (the local planning authority) as Supplementary Planning Guidance, which means that it will have to be taken account in determining planning applications in the village.

Copies of the VDS have been printed, and are available for reference in the Parish Centre and the local Library.
