To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, what assessment he has made of the extent to which extra infrastructure spending in (a) Mid Sussex and (b) West Sussex has been in line with new house building; and if he will make a statement.

Between 2011-12 and 2015-16, total net housing additions in West Sussex were 15,280, of which 3,470 were accounted for by Mid Sussex. The planning system offers a number of tools to help ensure development of new homes contribute to meeting infrastructure need, including the community infrastructure levy and planning obligations where necessary to make development acceptable. Although my Department does not monitor the full range of infrastructure spending in local areas, government publishes detailed annual data of each local authority’s capital expenditure.
