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.

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

Friends of Easebourne Park is launched!

Easebourne Park Needs YOU!

Easebourne Parish Council has agreed to the formation of a volunteer organisation to be called the “Friends of Easebourne Park” (FrEP).  This group has been created with 3-fold aims:

  1. To fundraise on behalf of Easebourne Park.
  2. To seek volunteers willing to join FrEP and work to support and develop the Park.
  3. To gather input from local people and representative groups so that the Park may best serve the local community.

All funds raised to be exclusively spent on the Park by FrEP. A FrEP constitution has been created and this requires 4/5 committee members as follows: Chairman; Vice Chairman (to be a EPC councillor); Treasurer, and finally; Secretary/Membership Secretary (could be split). It is really hoped that Easebourne Parishioners will volunteer to fill these committee posts.  The work involved will be slight and the FrEP committee is to meet 4 times a year.

However, if you do not wish to serve on the FrEP committee, but would wish to indicate your support for the Park and would like to be involved in its future development, just join and become a member of FrEP.  Membership is free to all Easebourne Parishioners.

To volunteer for a committee post, see a copy of the FrEP Constitution, or to simply become a member of FrEP, please contact the Parish Clerk on Parishclerk@easebourne.org or call 07342 166 188

Let’s keep developing this wonderful community space and play park together

Parish Newsletter now being distributed

The first Parish newsletter of the year is now being distributed and we thought it was a good opportunity to review everything that has happened in the last year together with highlighting what we will focus on in 2019. We hope you find it informative and a useful summary of the activities of your Parish Council. If you have any comments then we’re always happy to hear them!

Easebourne Park Crowdfunding Initiative Launched!

A new Crowdfunding initiative for Easebourne Park has been launched to raise funds to upgrade the paths around the Park enabling easier access to all areas for buggies, cycles and wheelchairs. Combined with an existing volunteering project to improve access on foot from the eastern Wheelbarrow Castle entrance, this initiative will help provide a much safer way to access the Primary School on foot. 

During phase 1 of Easebourne Park, the paths were constructed in such a way that upgrading would be possible once sufficient funds were available. Since it’s completion in September 2018 the Park has proved to be a great success with large numbers of the community using it ever since.

Crowdfunding is the new way in which we as a Parish Council can try to access funds from the West Sussex County Council Community Initiative Fund. Projects must show that they have community buy-in in the form of likes, comments and most importantly, pledges to our crowdfunding campaign. This is why we are seeking as many pledges as possible (from as little as £2 upwards) from individuals and businesses within the Parish and surrounding areas to show that this project has the backing and support of the local community. 

You can make a pledge to our project by following this link: www.spacehive.com/easebourne-park-inclusive-access-project and clicking ‘Back this project’. The more pledges we receive, the more likely we will be to secure additional funding from West Sussex County Council. If you’re not familiar with the concept of Crowdfunding, your pledge will only be claimed as and when we reach our fundraising target! So please help us achieve this key element of Phase 2 of Easebourne Park by pledging just £2 (or more!) and spreading the word among your friends, families, neighbours and colleagues. Thank you!
