The Council

The Parish Council is the tier of local government closest to the people. As the 14 elected councillors, we are responsible for spending public money lawfully and without risk, and for achieving the best value for money and representing the views of the local community.

The Parish Council is responsible for the community centre, jubilee field, toddler play park and the Spinney and willow pond in North Bersted Street.

The toddler play park has recently undergone a substantial refurbishment.

We monitor all planning applications in the Parish and, using our local knowledge, we advise Arun District Council of the action we believe they should take.
