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.

Graffiti and Fly Posting

In partnership with Mid Sussex District Council and West Sussex County Council the East Grinstead Town Council is committed to removing fly posting and graffiti within the town.

Graffiti removal

Fly posting

Fly-posters usually advertise events with posters, stickers or bills that are put up without the permission of the property owner. Fly-posting is a criminal offence.


Graffiti is anything that is written, sprayed or painted on public or private property. It’s illegal to do this without permission. If there is graffiti in public places, our outdoor services team will come and remove or paint over it.

Offensive/Racist Graffiti

We aim to remove any offensive, racist or other hate related graffiti within 1 working day of it being reported to the council. Where possible we will also remove any offensive graffiti reported on private property.

Other Graffiti and Fly-posting

We aim to remove all visible graffiti and fly-posting from public view within 5 working days of it being reported to the council. All residents and businesses are encouraged to clean graffiti from their own property as soon as possible.
