CPRE Sussex calls on Mid Sussex DC to withdraw draft District Plan Update

Mid Sussex DC should seize opportunity to ‘fundamentally rethink’ its plan ahead of potential Government changes to housing targets.

CPRE Sussex volunteers and staff say the review, which updates the 2018 District Plan, includes excessive housing targets and major site allocations.

With central Government indicating it may change the rules governing housing targets, the charity says the council should withdraw its current plan and explore the opportunity to rewrite it.

CPRE Sussex has also criticised the amount of time residents and other interested parties have been given to comment and a complete lack of targets on climate mitigation and environment policy.
