The Revised Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to Mid Sussex District Council in accordance with the Neighbourhood Plan Regulations. It has now been accepted by Mid Sussex District Council under Section 15 of the Regulations and they will carry out a public consultation on the Plan. This will commence on 22 July 2019 and will last for 8 weeks. Following this Mid Sussex District Council will tabulate the comments received and will arrange for a Public Examination to be held in the late Autumn. An Inspector, Mr Andrew Ashcroft, has been appointed by Mid Sussex District Council to conduct the Examination.

The Neighbourhood Plan Working Group will not meet again until the end of the Consultation Period in late September 2019 because there will be no business to transact until Hassocks Parish Council receives the consultation results from Mid Sussex District Council.
