UPDATE April 2015

Good News!  The Slaugham Parish Council Neighbourhood Plan (NHP) ‘Scoping Report’ which sets out the basic background for the Neighbourhood Plan, has now been considered by Mid Sussex District Council (MSDC) Statutory Consultees, and no concerns were raised. This means that the first stage in the process has been completed.

In order to continue to get the information about the NHP out to as many local residents as possible in all 4 villages, a NHP “Communication Group” has been formed to discuss and plan a communication strategy. This group aims to pass updates and relevant information in many ways, including:

  •  A NEW, user friendly NHP Website – go to  and take a look!
  •  Facebook and Twitter! – sign up via the website to receive updates as they are released
  •  Email messages via local village Community Groups
  •  Articles in the local papers
  •  Banners, posters and exhibitions

The dates for the next NHP Committee meetings, which are held at The Pavillion, Handcross at 7:30pm are 5th May 2015 and 1st June 2015.  Members of the public are encouraged to attend.
