Potholes

If you spot a pothole, a sunken drain, overgrown vegetation, damaged kerbs or another problem anywhere in West Sussex that you think is a danger to road or footpath users, then it’s very easy to report it directly to West Sussex County Council via www.love.westsussex.gov.uk. Just click on the ‘Add report’ option and follow the steps, including as much detail as possible so they can pin point exactly where the problem is. Of course you can also email parishclerk@easebourne.org if it’s something specifically within Easebourne.

Careful drivers welcome!

We recently added the finishing touch to our village gateways that will be seen by motorists as they arrive in Easebourne on the A272 from Petworth. The ‘Please drive carefully through our village’ sign is another reminder that they are about to enter a 30mph residential area and they should revise their speed accordingly. Elsewhere in the village we’re working hard on other speed measures for the A286 and hope to have more news about progress shortly.

COWDRAY PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT IN EASEBOURNE

Easebourne Parish Council will be holding a planning meeting (in public as usual) to discuss the draft allocations policy for the village and the Cowdray Estate development proposals following its public consultation, details of which are below. We would encourage all residents to attend the consultation as any proposals will have an impact on the whole village.

The Parish Council’s public meeting will be on Monday 10 July at 7.30pm in the Refectory

Initial concept design for the Wheelbarrow Castle field

The initial concept design for the Wheelbarrow Castle field was launched at the village meeting and the field committee has also consulted with the primary school on the initial design.  The design incorporates some traditional play equipment along with Wildwood UK dens and trails.  There are planted areas and a perimeter track around the whole field.

The feedback we have received has been positive and we have received some suggestions – lavatories, a kiosk and some kind of swing all of which are looking into.  If you have any ideas, suggestions or comments please do email holly@easebourne.org.

The field committee is working towards producing a final design and will consult with the Parish again on the final design.

Speedwatch Volunteers

With the days getting longer we are on a mission to establish a greater Speedwatch presence within the village. The most recent session logged over 40 drivers exceeding the speed limit in under an hour! However we need more volunteers. It’s an interesting role, you’ll always be working with another volunteer and for no more than an hour at a time. Some simple training on using a Speedgun is provided. If you can help please contact our Parish Clerk or complete the volunteer form, click here, for more information.

It’s a dirty job but someone has to do it

A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped with the village litter pick on Saturday.  With a good number of helpers we were able to cover most of the village.  It is always surprising that so many bags are filled and then always slightly depressing when a few days later the litter returns.  The Parish Council is looking at the viability of installing bins in some of the litter hotspots.

Playground equipment to be removed end of January

The equipment on the existing playground is being removed at the end of January 2017 to give the Parish Council time to carry out remedial work to the playground site before handing the field back when the lease of the existing playground comes to an end.

Plans for the new playground are underway and the field committee is speaking to a number of contractors and are waiting for some initial design ideas which the field committee can discuss and progress in the early part of next month.
