3. Gatwick Diamond
The Gatwick Diamond Initiative is a public/ private partnership established in 2003 to enable local authorities in the area to co-operate on strategic matters.
The Gatwick Diamond Initiative includes the authorities of Reigate & Banstead, Crawley, Horsham, Mid Sussex, Mole Valley and Tandridge. Surrey County Council and West Sussex County Council are also represented.
In 2012, the Gatwick Diamond local authorities prepared a Local Strategic Statement which:
- Sought to provide a broad, consistent direction for planning and economic issues;
- Identified the areas where joint working was most important; and
- Established mechanisms through which co-operation and engagement could occur between the authorities.
In 2016 this document was refreshed to update the long-term strategic planning and investment priorities to guide plan making and decision taking for the authorities to 2031.
