Withdrawal of Mobile Office Service in Plumpton

Following the public consultation into Mobile Library Services 1 May-31 July 2014, a recommendation was agreed by East Sussex County Council Cabinet to withdraw the Mobile Office vehicle from its current scheduled stops in Camber, Horam, Newick, Plumpton, Sovereign Harbour and Telscombe Cliffs. The vehicle will be withdrawn on 19th December 2014.

Further Changes to Mobile Library Stops in Plumpton

We have recently been informed by East Sussex County Council that there will be timetable changes to the mobile library service in Plumpton. From Wednesday 14th January, the Mobile Library will only stop at the Village Hall Car Park. Additionally the library will now visit Plumpton once every 3 weeks.

The library will be at the Village Hall Car Park on the following dates between 1.45pm and 2.15pm: 13th January, 4th February, 25th February, 18th March, 8th April, 29th April, 20th May and 10th June.

Further details can be found on the East Sussex County Council Website under mobile library.

Bus Service Reduction

As you may know the County Council is proposing to make significant cuts to the bus services it funds and a 30% increase in fares which will have a big effect on all who use bus services through the village. Whilst peak hour services will not change, daytime services outside peak hours will only run on 2 days a week. A consultation document has now been made available:


Individual members of the public are being encouraged to respond. Follow the link above so that you can have your say. The consultation ends on the 28th September. The Parish Council will be formally responding but it will be very helpful if as many Plumpton residents as possible also have their say.
