Mid Sussex District Council has recently adopted a new District Plan 2014-2031 (www.midsussex.gov.uk/districtplan) which has replaced the 2004 Local Plan as the development plan for Mid Sussex district. In light of this, the Mid Sussex Development and Infrastructure SPD 2006 is being refreshed:

•To ensure the SPD complies with all relevant national planning policy and guidance;
• To update the document to ensure that it complies with the relevant policies in the District Plan; and
• To update the requirements for each type of contribution and the costs of these contributions.

Three separate documents have been prepared to replace the 2006 Development and Infrastructure SPD:

•A Development Infrastructure and Contributions SPD, which sets out the overall framework for the management of planning obligations;
• An Affordable Housing SPD, which provides more detailed information on the requirements for on-site and off-site affordable housing provision, and
• A Viability SPD which provides information on the viability assessment process.

The consultation draft SPDs can be found at: www.midsussex.gov.uk/spd and are also available to view in local libraries, Help Points and the District Council’s offices in Haywards Heath.

The Development Infrastructure and Contributions SPD, Affordable Housing SPD and Viability SPD along with their supporting documents will be the subject of a six-week period of formal public consultation from Monday 9th April until Monday 21st May 2018. Representations on these documents should be received no later than midnight on Monday 21st May 2018.
