Land off Gravelye Lane
We are preparing detailed plans for a new residential development of 130 homes on land off Gravelye Lane in Lindfield.
Under our proposals, a mix of housetypes is proposed to suit buyers in a wide range of circumstances, with 30% of the new properties to be provided as affordable homes, to be administered by a council-approved housing association for local people in housing need.
These proposals will form a reserved matters planning application to be submitted to Mid Sussex District Council in due course, after outline planning consent for the site was granted in March 2017 following a successful appeal after our initial outline application was refused in July 2016.
You can view the outline application by visiting MSDC's online planning pages (search planning reference DM/16/1012). Outline planning permission established the principle for up to 130 new homes on the site as well as vehicle access from Gravelye Lane. The reserved matters application will address the layout, scale, appearance and landscaping of the development, as well as key matters such as drainage strategy.
In order to allow local residents and key stakeholders the opportunity to find out more about our emerging proposals, we held a public exhibition at The Birch Hotel in Haywards Heath on Wednesday 19th July 2017 between 3pm and 8pm.
Visitors were able to view our emerging proposals, speak to experts from our project team, ask questions and provide us with their feedback on the scheme. If you would like to view the exhibition boards displayed at the consultation event, please click here.
If you would like to comment on our proposals, click the ‘Have your say’ button at the top of this page. Feedback will be accepted until Wednesday 26th July 2017, when the public consultation period will end. The feedback we receive from local residents will help us to refine our emerging plans before we finalise and submit our planning application.
