In 2009, Mid Sussex District Council, Horsham District Council and Crawley Borough Council commissioned consultants GL Hearn and Regeneris Consulting to prepare an Economic Appraisal of Northern West Sussex. Part 1 of this study was published in September 2009, and this forms the first part of the Employment Land Review for the sub-region.
Part 2 was published in October 2010. This further develops the work carried out in Part 1 and considers potential locations for future employment provision throughout the study area.
These documents inform the work on the three local authorities' Local Development Frameworks.
