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.

Proof of life and residence

If you are receiving a pension from another country, the Town Council offers the service to sign and stamp the form. The service will cost £10 for each pension form to be stamped and signed.

Forms for other purposes may also be authorised and will be considered on a case by case basis. These will also be subject to the £10 fee.

Each person named on the proof of life form will need to attend and bring the following:

  • The Proof of Life form you need to be authorised
  • Photo ID – a valid passport, driver’s licence, bus pass or other photo ID

You will also need to bring one of the following to prove your address:

  • A utility bill dated no more than 3 months before the date of the appointment
  • A bank or building society statement dated no more than 1 month before the date of the appointment
  • A council tax bill dated no more than 1 year before the date of the appointment

So you do not have a wasted journey to East Court please call 01342 323636 to ensure there is a member of staff available on that day to stamp and sign your form.
