Our Parish Council, consisting of nine elected members, has the responsibilty to ensure that all Parishioners have a 'voice' in the public forum on subjects both 'great and small' which affect them individualy or the Village as a whole.
Level Crossing Update
on 30 September in the evening, at the Lewes District Council planning meeting, members unanimously rejected the listed building application to remove the listed railway gates at Plumpton level crossing. The committee concluded that there was insufficient information to justify their removal and the impact on an important heritage aspect outweighed their need for removal.
The road currently remains closed and Parish Councillors, District Councillor Sarah Osborne, County Councillor Jim Sheppard and Maria Caulfield MP, are working hard on behalf of residents to get the road re-opened.
A further update will be posted when more information is available.
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is calling on the public to help protect our countryside from fire
As part East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service’s Safer Summer campaign, they are reminding members of the public of the impact that fires in the countryside have.
Every year in the UK, 1,700 farm buildings and 66,000 acres of grassland are destroyed by fire.
As the weather improves, the Service sees a rise in fires in the open. These can be extremely difficult to control and puts lives and property in danger.
Guidance on how you can enjoy the countryside safely and help to prevent fires can be found on their Safer Summer page at: http://www.esfrs.org/your-safety/safer-summer/
