Billingshurst Parish Council Billingshurst Community & Conference Centre Roman Way, Billingshurst, RH14 9QW
Annual Parish Meeting of Electors Each year we include a presentation on a matter which we hope will be of interest to residents, and this year is no exception. We are delighted to confirm that this year’s headline act will be the Executive Manager of Billingshurst Surgery, Mike SandfordWest. Mike will be able to tell you all about the surgery’s ambitions and take questions. There will of course be the usual report from the Council, but the rest of the meeting is yours so come along and ask any question relating to the Parish. Don’t forget that this is YOUR Meeting, not a Council meeting! If you would like to join us please pop along to the Billingshurst Centre, Tuesday 16th April, 7.00pm. Don’t forget to vote on 2nd May Local elections will take place on Thursday 2nd May; keep an eye out for election information coming through letterboxes soon.
at the end of Anvil Close would be more effective if surrounding vegetation was cut back first, so we are asking WSCC to do this in the first instance to see if it helps, and then revisit the need for the extra light.
New Play Area coming soon to Manor Fields The Council has given the go-ahead for new play equipment to be installed at this site, replacing that lost in an arson attack in October 2017. The colourful multi-unit containing slides, climbing slopes, ropes and walkways will be joined by a springy and rotating dish, all specially aimed at younger children of all abilities in an effort to attract more families. Vegetation surrounding the site has also been heavily cut back to make the site more open and airy, and allow for greater natural surveillance by nearby housing. The new equipment is expected to be in place by May.
Anvil Close Streetlight on hold Thank you to all those residents who let us know their views on the need for an additional street light between Anvil Close and Wicks Road. Many commented that the existing light
