Haywards Heath Town Council is calling for help from residents to develop the Neighbourhood Plan.
Since the consultation earlier this year the rules on the development of neighbourhood plans, both locally and nationally, have changed significantly and quickly.
A spokesman for the council said: “As the plan has been progressed in line with these changes and the comments made through the consultation process, our progress has been somewhat slower than we would have liked.
“A new year brings fresh opportunity so we would like to re-engage with the community to let you know where we are with the Plan and what the council’s intentions are for moving the plan forward.”
The council is holing an open morning January 10, 8.30am-12.30pm at the Town Hall.
