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.

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.
The Albourne Road allotments has a short waiting list at the moment. Therefore, it is a good time to put your name on our waiting list. If you are interested, please contact the Parish Council office on 01273 833264 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org .
