Neighbourhood Plan Referenda

Neighbourhood Plans

Neighbourhood planning is a way for Town and Parish Councils to shape the future of their areas.  The ability for a Town or Parish to produce a Plan is in the Localism Act 2011. More information about the neighbourhood planning process is available via the council's planning policy pages.

Proceeding to a Referendum

When a Town or Parish Council's draft plan has been approved by an independent examiner, the District Council is asked to put a question to voters of the relevant area at a referendum.  The question asks voters if they want Mid Sussex District Council to use the neighbourhood plan when deciding planning applications in the area.

Current Referenda

None at this time.

Campaign Groups
