95% Vote 'Yes' in Lindfield Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

After a long and gruelling struggle, the Lindfield and Lindfield Rural Neighbourhood Plan was finally completed and put to the community in a Referendum held on 28th January. With a turnout of 28.6%, 1888 people voted for the Plan to help decide future planning applications within the two parishes. This equates to a figue of 95% in favour of the Plan.

The Plan will now be adopted (‘made’) by Mid Sussex District Council, at which point it will become part of the Council’s development plans and help to shape future development in Mid Sussex.

The two Parish Councils, together with the community members of the four Focus groups who helped develop the Plan over the last three years, would like to thank all those who voted in the referendum (whether For or Against). It is good to see that the community is keen to have a say in its future.

The formal declaration of the result can be viewed on the District Council’s website
