HAYWARDS HEATH’S NEIGHBOURHOOD PLAN
The Localism Act 2011 has given the opportunity for Local Councils to develop Neighbourhood Plans. This will allow them to shape any required development and growth within their boundaries over the next 20 years.
Haywards Heath has taken up this opportunity and has committed to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for Haywards Heath.
By developing a Neighbourhood Plan there is a commitment to ensuring any required housing growth is balanced by improvements to the Town’s infrastructure and also to protecting the community’s facilities and environment where necessary.
Haywards Heath Town Council is delighted to announce it has been awarded 'Front Runner' status by the Department for Communities and Local Government to support the Town Council in the production of the Town’s Neighbourhood Plan.
It is important that the Town Council involves the local community in the development of the Neighbourhood Plan. So far, the Council has undertaken three consultations:
If you did not respond to the above consultations, but would like to be kept up to date with the development of the Town’s Neighbourhood Plan, please submit your contact details using the Contact Form on the left hand side of this page, or telephone the Town Hall (01444 455694) Thank you.
