A Sustainable


Creating sustainable communities lies at the core of our ethos. Our region is already home to the South Coast’s first offshore wind farm and the local authority’s sustainability ambitions are moving forward at pace. We are helping to provider greener energy options for companies based in the Mid Sussex region.
Rampion Offshore Wind Farm is now generating enough green electricity to power the equivalent of around 350,000 homes. This is equal to almost half of the homes in Sussex.

Our Sustainable Strategies

Green Recovery projects

Our District also supports Green Recovery projects and schemes through the Greater Brighton Economic Board’s ten environmental pledges. The local authority has pledged to back projects which will save energy and reduce fuel poverty, improve water recycling on new build developments, transportation choices, enhance public spaces and the local environment.

Improving walking and cycling facilities across the district

Mid Sussex is partnering with West Sussex County Council, accelerating delivery of a £22.8m Place and Connectivity Programme to encourage active travel by improving walking and cycling facilities and the public realm. It has already delivered 11km of improved walking and cycling facilities, linking key employment sites to public transport hubs and key retail and leisure opportunities.

Using the UN Sustainable Development Goals to guide plans and policies

Mid Sussex District Council is using the UN Sustainable Development Goals to guide its plans and policies, and its current Sustainability Strategy includes the goals of raising the recycling rate to 50% (currently 45%); a strategy for an Electric Vehicle network as well as new inter-urban cycleways linking key settlements, including one between Burgess Hill and Haywards Heath.
A new Low Carbon Business video series highlighting the importance of businesses transitioning to ‘net zero and beyond’ is now available to watch. The Adelphi Group of Companies a local business based in Haywards Heath has been selected as an exemplary business who are leading the way on lowering carbon. Through practical advice and inspiring insights, the aim is to encourage and enable other local businesses to begin their own ‘green’ journey.

The Adelphi Group of Companies is an award-winning manufacturer of packaging machinery and equipment. Its eco-friendly production facility, in Haywards Heath, includes solar panels, an evaporative cooling system, air source heat pump and rainwater harvesting facilities. The film explains how the Group’s inclusive and sustainability-focussed culture has recently led to another new eco initiative – an innovative idea from the production floor to replace plastic foam packaging with a plant-based, biodegradable alternative.
