Mid Sussex District Council has recommended a revised draft of the District Plan for public consultation, to ensure the plan remains up to date, properly plans for infrastructure to be delivered alongside new homes, and protects the district from speculative, unplanned development.

East Grinstead residents are invited to a public consultation and exhibition for the proposal of new homes and community facilities on the land west of Imberhorne Lane, East Grinstead. If you have any comments on the proposal, please direct them to the District Council by emailing planninginfo@midsussex.gov.uk. Please click this link to access the consultation.

Armorial Bearings – the Town Crest

The Crest or Coat of Arms was bestowed to the East Grinstead Town Council following Local Government reorganisation in 1974 (having formerly been the crest of the Urban District Council).

The use of the Coat of Arms (in full or part) can be approved by the Town Council, however this is not readily given and any request must be made, stating the case for the use, to the Town Council to consider. Use of the Coat of Arms in full or part without permission is prohibited*.
