PARISH 2031 Neighbourhood Plan



Local community supports Plan.

The Referendum took place on 12 February 2015 and 2139 electors voted, which was a 42% turn-out. 92.4% ( 1972 electors) voted in favour of the Plan, which means that it will now become the formal planning guidance for the Parish. Council Chairman John Wilkinson said “The Council is delighted to have the support of local people. We know some of the proposals are not everyone’s first choice, but the Plan provides a clear and credible future for restrained development in our villages.”

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


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.
