We WON!

The Parish Council are absolutely delighted to announce that Easebourne Park won a South Downs National Park Design Award this week!

More than 1,200 votes were cast for the People’s Choice Award, which included an online poll for the public’s favourite among 16 shortlisted schemes. The SDNPA were impressed with the fact that the Park is an “impressive mix of play area and habitat creation” and a fine example of the “power of using the National Park for health and well-being purposes”.

So a huge thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for the Park and look out for news of more exciting plans for the next phase of the Park which we hope to be able to share with you very soon.

More news about the awards and other winners can be found on the SDNPA website:

Midhurst Green Volunteers come to Easebourne!

The Midhurst Green Volunteers are a small group of volunteers who help keep excess vegetation at bay around the town. The team work independently of, but in cooperation with, the Midhurst Town Council and Chichester District Council to improve access for people.

The team has lots of equipment to help with weeding, mowing and cutting tasks, thanks to the contribution of local sponsors.

The Parish Council is delighted that the green volunteers have agreed to extend their services to Easebourne BUT we need volunteers to help with the tasks in both Easebourne and Midhurst – things such as keeping High Path clear of brambles and spreading hedgerows, keeping verges trimmed, cleaning bus shelters etc.

The first confirmed date is Saturday 7th December at 8.30am. If anyone can lend a hand for a couple of hours either then or at a future date please contact the Parish Council at parishclerk@easebourne.org. You can find out more about the green volunteers by visiting their website www.midhurstgreenvolunteers.org.uk

Bus shelter refurbishment

You may have already noticed that work has begun on the replacement and refurbishment of 2 Parish Bus Shelters on the A286, one just outside Conifers School and the other just opposite.

This work is being undertaken by Darren Rolfe of West Sussex County Council and his team of volunteers from across Sussex. They offer an amazing service for Parishes across the county and have carried out numerous projects for us over the last couple of years saving us a considerable amount of money. Projects include the installation of the Village Gateways, work in the Park and the initial Bus Shelter opposite Kings Drive.

Work will continue over the next few weeks, so if you see them please feel free to stop and say thank you. If you’d like to know more about Darren’s Team and how you could volunteer for similar projects, contact parishclerk@easebourne.org for more information.

Easebourne Parish Design Statement

Designs on Easebourne Parish

The residents of Easebourne Parish have the opportunity to help influence any future local building development by sharing their views over the next few weeks through the completion of a short survey. If you are a resident of Easebourne Parish you can complete the survey online via link below or you can download it. You have until the 1st September to submit your thoughts.

https://www.surveymonkey.de/r/TDQNSN9

Download it here How Do You Feel About Easebourne (1)

The feedback will be used to help create a vision for the Parish and the development of a Parish Design Statement.  The work is being done in response to The South Downs National Park Authority’s request for all communities within the Park to contribute to the area’s planning processes. Others Parishes to have already published their Parish Design Statement include Fernhurst.

The aim is to help influence any development in the Parish so that it is in harmony with the surrounding area and reinforces local character.

A small group of Easebourne Parish residents have taken on the challenge to pull the statement together, but need to get as many views as possible from people in Easebourne, Henley and the King Edward VII development to ensure it reflects what residents want to see.

Homes and businesses in the Parish can expect to receive questionnaires during late July and will have until the end of August to respond. The questionnaire can also be completed online and found on the Easebourne parish website. Once the people of the Parish have identified the things that matter to them then small teams will be dispatched to describe the characteristics of those things.

If you would like to volunteer to support this project or have any questions please feel free to contact the team at:Parishdesign@easebourne.org
