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 email@example.com
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.

Sussex residents now have the chance to pose questions to the Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) in person at a meeting next month.
Questions are now being invited for Katy Bourne ahead of the next meeting of the Sussex Police and Crime Panel on Friday 5 October.
Having submitted questions in advance, residents can, if they wish, then attend the meeting to ask their question in person, hear the answer and then raise further points. Otherwise the Chairman will ask their question on their behalf.
This new approach was agreed by the panel at its last meeting.
Questions could be about any policy issue relating to policing in Sussex (but not related to operational matters, or a live case).
The deadline for receiving questions is midday on Friday 21 September and they can be submitted in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 03302 222542.
The meeting will be held at County Hall, Lewes, starting at 10.30am. The meeting will also be webcast live at www.eastsussex.public-i.tv/core/portal/home.
Local residents are invited to a drop in session at the Village Centre, Trinity Road, Hurstpierpoint on 3rd October between 2pm - 6pm.
This is an opportunity to view the plans, ask questions and find out more about the A2300 widening scheme.
Nearly 50 acres of meadowland has now been acquired by the Parish Council, for access by the public and for preservation of the natural countryside. This is part of the Council's Neighbourhood Plan which was approved by over 90% of the community in our referendum in 2015.
The area is north of Trinity Road, west of College Lane, and east of Iden Hurst and Fairfield Crescent, with points of access currently from the Millennium Garden (Trinity Road), Highfield Drive, Latchetts Lane and St Georges Green.
Over the coming months and years we will be introducing new planting, to reinforce the indigenous species, introducing a community orchard, improving access and adding noticeboards and maps to help everyone understand and enjoy the areas.
