Planning Inspector latest…

Jonathan Bore, the planning inspector appointed by central government to review and test the housing plan put together by Mid Sussex, released his interim findings earlier this week.

His key findings and recommendations include;

That Mid Sussex District Council  considers carefully how best to deal with the unmet need of Brighton and other coastal authorities and

Greater consideration is given to the potential offered for new freestanding developments rather than extensions to existing settlements.
