The Parish Council is the first tier of local government and represents the communities of Hurstpierpoint, Sayers Common, Goddards Green and the surrounding countryside. We have a population of nearly 7,000 who are fortunate to live in an area of great beauty, with the benefits of ready access to Brighton and the coast and the South Downs, and with the centre of London only a 50 minute train ride.
Hurstpierpoint is the largest village and is home to a very wide range of clubs, societies and sports activities. Significant local events such as the St Lawrence Fair in June each year, and the Hurstpierpoint arts festival in September, are extremely popular and draw many visitors into our community. The village enjoys an excellent range of quality shops in the High Street, as well as a cinema, theatre, tennis and bowls clubs, and many organisations for all ages.
The Parish Council office is next to the Library in Trinity Road, Hurstpierpoint, and we are open to the public each weekday from 9.00am to 1.30pm. Alternatively you can call us on 01273 833264 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We try to help on all matters of local interest, and if we cannot give the answer then we try to guide you to the right organisation.
Thank you for your interest in our community.

South Avenue Cemetery Memorial Audit
A recent memorial safety audit has identified 9 memorials as unstable and hence posing a risk to anybody who could be walking or working nearby.
The 9 memorials have been identified with hazard tape. Anyone having a family memorial in South Avenue Cemetery is asked to check whether it has been identified as unstable and if so, take appropriate remedial action.
There will be a review in June 2020 and any memorials that are still unstable will be laid flat.
If you have any queries please contact Helen Valler at the Parish Council office - 01273 833264
