Haywards Heath Town Council is a statutory consultee on all planning applications affecting the Town. Mid Sussex District Council is the relevant Local Planning Authority and all Planning Applications are ultimately decided by them.
To deliver our responsibilities, we review planning documents available in the public domain, hold private discussions with developers, consider comments from stakeholders and finally receive focussed input directly from speakers during Planning Committee Meetings.
The Town Council is fully committed to ensure that the Town's voice is heard on relevant applications made in Haywards Heath, and significantly, Mid Sussex District Council will take into consideration representations made by Haywards Heath Town Council before applications are determined.
The Planning Committee consists of eight members of the Council ensuring that each ward has representation. The members of the planning committee are:
Cllr Clive Laband (Chairman), Cllr Mike Pulfer (Vice Chairman), Cllr Clare Cheney, Cllr Alastair McPherson, Cllr Chrisopher Evans, Cllr Stephanie Inglesfield, Cllr Richard Nicholson and Cllr Sujan Wickremaratchi.
Speaking at Planning Meetings - the Town Council welcomes residents who wish to come along and speak on a specific planning appliications. If you wish to speak please inform the Town Hall by 12pm on the day of the Committee Meeting. Each speaker will be allowed 3 minutes to address the Committee.
