Mid Sussex is a local government district which can be found within the ceremonial county of West Sussex, on the southern coast of England. The district includes the most notable settlements of East Grinstead, Haywards Heath and Burgess Hill, as well as smaller settlements like Balcombe and Cuckfield.
The district has borders with a number of other local government districts including the Tandridge district of Surrey to the north, the Lewes district and the Wealden district to the east and the Brighton and Hove district to the south, all of which are in East Sussex, and the Horsham district and the Crawley district to the west and northwest respectively, both of which are in West Sussex.
The Formation Of The Mid Sussex District
Mid Sussex, as a local government district in its current form, was officially formed on the 1st April 1974 after the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act. This parliamentary legislation changed the face of local government throughout the United Kingdom, creating a raft of new districts from former administrative entities.
When it comes to Mid Sussex, the new district was created from a merger of the urban districts of Cuckfield, Burgess Hill and East Grinstead and nearly all of the Cuckfield Rural district.
The Current District Of Mid Sussex
In the form which it took following the 1st April 1974, the local government district of Mid Sussex came to cover a total land area of 129 square miles. These 129 square miles are home to approximately 140,000 permanent residents according to the latest available census data.
