The Parish Council submitted a Community Highway Scheme (CHS) to the Highway Authority West Sussex County Council on 5 March 2019. This scheme proposes a series of minor parking and traffic management schemes in Cuckfield Road, High Street, South Avenue, Malthouse Lane, Manor Road in Hurstpierpoint, and Reeds Lane and London Road, Sayers Common.
WSCC will consider the application and then decide its priority. If approved, the works would take place in 2020/21.

The Parish Council acknowledges that there are significant traffic and parking issues in the Parish area, particularly around the centre of Hurstpierpoint village, and along some of its approach roads. We have appointed a HIGHWAYS & CYCLEWAYS WORKING GROUP to investigate the issues and report to the Council. Where feasible, the Council will make suggestions to the District Council (carparks) or the County Council (yellow lines and parking restrictions).
The Parish Council has also commissioned the HIGH STREET IMPROVEMENTS SCHEME. Please click here for more details.
