Neighbourhood Plan

The Cuckfield Neighbourhood Plan was the first Plan to be adopted in Mid Sussex and now forms part of MSDC's District Plan. 

Previous information on proceeding to referendum

Cuckfield Parish Council's Neighbourhood Plan was made in 2014.

The key themes and policies for the Plan are:

  • Identify sites which will bring forward new market housing and affordable homes.
  • Ensure Cuckfield retains its distinctive character and setting between the High Weald AONB, South Downs and neighbouring settlements.
  • Protect the village centres of Cuckfield and Whitemans Green.
  • Provide identified infrastructure and allow expansion for both schools, whilst taking into account the environment and ecology.
  • Ensure the health and well-being of residents and seek to allocate and protect open space, community buildings and essential services
