Mid Sussex Local Plan 2004 - Saved Policies

In September 2007 the Government Office for the South East (GOSE) confirmed that the majority of policies within the adopted Mid Sussex Local Plan have been saved. These policies have been saved indefinitely. In practice this means that the majority of policies are saved until replaced by policies within a future Development Plan Document, in which case the Development Plan Document will clearly set out which Local Plan policies it replaces. 

The following policies have NOT been saved and no longer form part of the Mid Sussex Local Plan. They are indicated by red, strikethrough text in the files above.

  • C7 - Best and Most Versatile Agricultural Land: GOSE advised that this policy exceeds the provisions of PPG7 paragraph 28
