The Parish Council is keen to support it residents and uphold the values and objectives set out in the Parish Plan. Over the last year the Parish Council has been successful in securing funding through the Operation Watershed fund, administered by West Sussex County Council, this has paid for the ditch clearance at Dean Lane End, as well as the Project Emslfow report which was produced in conjunction with the neighbouring parishes of Compton, Westbourne and Southbourne. The Operation Watershed fund has just reopened for 2016/17 and the Parish Council have already submitted a bid on behalf of residents at Forestside and are working with the Environment Agency to look at options available for flood relief at both Stoughton and Dean Lane End.
The Parish secured funds through the ‘Quick Fix fund’ at West Sussex County Council to replace two noticeboards; Racton and Dean Lane End and replace the bus shelter at Walderton.
The Parish will also support initiatives in the Parish where it is able; such as including the new defibrillators in Forestside on its Insurance Policy.
Members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend the meetings. If there is any topic you would like to see raised or discussed at future meetings please do get in touch with either the Clerk or the Chair direct.
We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting on Monday 13th November 2017, from 7.30pm at the Walderton Pumping Station, Walderton
