Storrington & Sullington and Washington Neighbourhood Plan 2019-2031


'Welcome to the Storrington & Sullington and Washington Neighbourhood Plan (SSWNP) which was formally adopted by Horsham District Council on 5th September 2019.

The Localism Act of 2011 has given communities such as ours the opportunity to shape our own future rather than have others determine what will happen. This plan directly affects the community in which you live.

The two Parish Councils are pleased to have come together to produce this Plan which is based fundamentally on what you, as residents, told us through our questionnaires and meetings etc. and through the Focus Groups, which consisted of both Parish Councillors and members of the public. Likewise, the Steering Group is made up of Councillors and members of the public from each parish.

The Neighbourhood Plan now forms part of the statutory development plan     for Horsham District and will be used in the determination of planning             proposals for the parishes
