Local planning applications
The parish council is not a planning authority and as such does not make final decisions on planning applications; this is the responsibility of Mid Sussex District Council. However, the parish council is a statutory consultee and as such receives all planning applications relating to the parish for comment; it is also able to request and comment on any application made within the District.
Each week the parish receives a copy of the ‘weekly list’ which details all applications received in the District and also a copy, including plans etc, of any applications relating to Lindfield Rural area. The local newspaper, Mid Sussex Times, also lists planning applications. The ‘weekly lists’ and the current planning applications can be viewed at the Parish Council Office or on the Mid Sussex District Council web site at www.midsussex.gov.uk.
Listed below are the most recent planning applications relating to the parish and any comments made by the Parish Council; decisions made by Mid Sussex District Council can be viewed on their web site or, if available, at the Parish Office.
