Plumpton Parish Council
Plumpton Parish Council
Our Parish Council has the responsibility to ensure that all parishioners have a voice on issues great and small that affect them individually, and the parish as a whole.
LDC Planning Committee Meeting – Land Adjacent Nolands Farm Station Road
Plumpton Parish Council will be speaking at the LDC Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday 8th December at 6pm to object to the Nolands planning application. Rob Banks, our District Councillor will also speak to object to this speculative application. It’s good news that the LDC planning officers have recommended the application for refusal but of course we need the committee to follow that recommendation.
Residents are welcome to attend the meeting; just register your name by contacting Committee Services on 01273 471600 or email email@example.com
Note the venue is: Kings Church Lewes (Church Building). Brooks Road, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 2BY
Plumpton Full Fibre Broadband
Have you ever wondered whether you could get a better broadband service in Plumpton? With full fibre broadband being rolled out across the country it’s now possible to upgrade to a much faster and more reliable service for the village. Under the Community Fibre Partnership scheme every household in the village is eligible for vouchers to help meet the cost of installation. The more people who commit to joining the scheme the better the chances fibre can be fully funded.

Annual Parish Meeting – Newsletter 2021
Due to CV-19 restrictions the Parish Council were unable again to hold their Annual Parish Meeting. Therefore a newsletter has been put together to advise on what the council have been doing over the past year along with reports from local groups and organisations.
We’ve just completed the Pavilion refurbishment, which has given us a substantial upgrade of the facilities.
The refurbishment was part-funded by a LEADER grant from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (£49k), and the remainder from our New Pavilion Fund (£28k) and the Parish Council (£7.5k).
With many thanks to Des Lambert, who helped us navigate the grant application process, and to parish councillor Emma Elford, who led renovation programme, got the grants, liaised with everyone involved.
The refurbishment has included:
- removal of the old kitchen to open up the space
- re-positioning of a new kitchen and utility room into the old committee room
- recovering of the floor throughout
- reconfiguring of the changing rooms
- increased storage facilities
- substantial replacing of rotten timbers throughout the infrastructure
- replacement of multiple doors
- replacement of window glass
- part installation of new composite cladding and sofits
- substantial re-plastering work throughout
- roof repair.
Steve Bodsworth was the contractor. We owe him many thanks for doing a fantastic job to a very high standard and completing on time.
As with all building jobs, we found some unexpected problems along the way that Steve responded to quickly, which allowed us to keep on schedule.
Now the work is complete, it has highlighted other parts of the facility that are looking a bit tired. Plumpton Parish Council will be costing further work to maintain this valued facility within a long-term preventative maintenance programme. We’ll provide further details in due course, later this year.
