Lurgashall Village Hall ~ This is its 100th year

The Lurgashall Village Hall now has its own website - see links at top left of this page.

Salt BINS 2013-14

As no roads in the parish of Lurgashall are on the WSCC main salt/grit routes, your parish council has joined a WSCC inititive to part fund additional salt bins situated at strategic locations around the parish. The map shows the salt locations as well as the strategic routes in/out of the village. Don't think we ever needed the salt this past winter, so the bins are already full for 2014/15. WSCC advice & info on winter maintainance is available here.

New planning meeting agenda

From Sept 2013 planning committee meetings of Lurgashall Parish Council will take place on a regular monthly basis ~ the first Monday of the month, rather than at variable times within the month as demand arose. This should be more convenient for all who may wish to plan to attend planning meetings.

South Downs Local Plan

The Local Plan (formerly the Local Development Framework) is the document that sets out how we will shape future development in the Nation Park. Consultation on the Plan is open throughout April at the SDNP website.

ALLOTMENTS available in Lurgashall, Petworth

Lurgashall Parish Council has some spare allotments available to rent which are available now in time for the coming growing season. Although preference would be given to parishioners, you don't have to be a resident of the parish in order to rent an allotment. So if you are looking or thinking of making a start with an allotment then contact the council for full details. Yearly rental (heavily subsidised by the PC) is only 20 per full plot or 10 per half plot if you want to make a start in a smaller way.

Events Past

Broadband Speed

Well, last year we did not get many people signing up for Northchapel exchange BT Infinity upgrade. We now have another chance this time to influence WSCC as to how they will spend their 6.26 million to support Broadband Internet access to West Sussex. You can go to WSCC Better Connected site to find out more and importantly put your comments to them.
So far Lurgashall has had 26 registrations on the WSCC website. (Lodsworth 17, Northchapel 6, Plaistow 63) which I think not only reflects the size of the parish but how good your current connections are.

Sussex Police now 999 or 101

The rollout of the national non-emergency police number 101 has at last reached Sussex (you wonder why they did not have a national number years ago). You now have two simple numbers to remember. Emgergency 999 and Non-Emergency 101. Hants was a beta test area and has been on this for over a year but it's become a national rollout. Much easier when travelling not to have to remember local numbers. (101 replaces the earlier Sussex 0845 6070999 number and will only cost 15p from mobile or landline however long your call)

Still use 999 if

  • a crime is in progress
  • someone suspected of a crime is nearby
  • there is danger to life
  • violence is being used or threatened
