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!

THE EYE PROJECT CORE TEAM ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT:

Planning approval is finally granted for the eye project. see the attached link for the details.

We now move the project to the grant seeking stage and are seeking help so if a parent of a young person in billingshurst would like to help please contact us via the link on this page.

We would thank all those who have supported us with this project to bring it to this key stage. there is still a long way to go before we see the project up and running and we do need every help we can have over the coming months. so if you want to help your children in this project do get in touch with us.

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

WE ARE GOING MOBILE

Over the next few months our site will see some changes !

With so much emphasis on mobile friendly site from the likes of Google, we have decided that it's time to bite the bullet as it were, and change to a more modern format.

With over 450 pages this may take sometime, but we'll make a start on the front part of the site and work through everything over the next few months

SO WATCH THIS SPACE !!
