Storrington & Sullington and Washington Neighbourhood Plan 2019-2031

The Localism Ac 2011 has enabled parishes to produce Neighbourhood Plans which allow communities to have more influence on what development comes forward in their parishes. It was with your support that Washington Parish Council joined forced with neighbouring Storrington & Sullington Parish Council on a 6-year journey to produce such a plan.

This culminated on 5th September 2019 when Horsham District Council voted to 'make' the Storrington & Sullington and Washington Neighbourhood Plan (SSWNP).

The SSWNP now forms part of the statutory development plan for the Horsham District and is being used to help in the determination of planning application for the parishes. Washington Parish Council would like to thank everyone who has made it possible to get to this point.
