What Does the Community Partnership Do?

We are a group of individuals, some of us representing local clubs and organisations, that develop and deliver agreed projects that have a direct impact on the lives and wellbeing of all Billingshurst residents; young and old, abled and disabled, and from all religions and political viewpoints.

We differ from Parish and District Councils because we have access to funds they don’t. This means we can apply for funding that can fill the gaps in the social, economic and recreational provision within our community that Local Authority organisations can’t.

The projects we work on could be identified by you, or any member of our community. Do you have a good idea or think something is missing from our community life? If so, Please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.

WE HAVE JUST BEEN AWARDED £12,380 FUNDING!!

In line with the SPD (Supplementary Planning Document) recommendations, the Community Partnership applied for and has been granted funding from the European LEADER Fund to provide much needed Wayfinder Posts, a new town map, visitor brochures and a new Tourism Website.

We are working on phase 1 at the moment and hope to have the Wayfinder Posts installed at strategic positions around the town by late September!

EYE Project Update

Whilst we recently reported the fantastic news that we now have planning permission for the EYE building, there is still much work to do before we can even put a brick in the ground!

Currently we are working with Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council to work out the terms of the lease for the land where the EYE building will go. We are also speaking with several building companies who are interested in tendering for the work.

We are working toward being in a position to have serious discussions with potential fund and grant providers who will enable us to finance the building of EYE.

Considerable progress has been made over the last few months although we admit, none of it visible to the general public!

Your patience will be rewarded! We promise! We will soon have a facility that caters for the needs of all young people that will be the envy of the whole County!

THe Neighbourhood Plan

The Neighbourhood Plan project started early last year after the establishment of a Parish Council Steering Committee made up of six Parish Councillors and six non-Councillors, plus County and District Councillors and a number of other volunteers.

The non-Councillors include representatives of the Billingshurst Chamber of Commerce and the Billingshurst Community Partnership. Planning consultants, Troy Navigus Partnership were appointed to advise the Steering Committee, and the process is expected to take some two years to complete.

The Steering Committee comprises Parish Councillors Sue Kingston (Chair), Paul Berry, Paul Leaney, Adam Du Lieu, Roy Margetts, and Lesley Wilding (Vice Chair); County Councillor Amanda Jupp, and District Councillors Nigel Jupp, Gordon Lindsay and Kate Rowbottom. Non-Councillors are: Vince Bellenot, Ken Johnston, Patrick Perks BEM, Martin Spurrier, and Alan Wadey.

For further information please contact the Parish Clerk at 01403 782555 or Martin Spurrier 01403 741391 / 07799368464
