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 email@example.com if it’s something specifically within Easebourne.
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.
Hollist Lane, Easebourne opposite junction with Dodsley Grove is temporarily prohibited from 09.30-15.30 on 26th June 2017
The A286 will be closed from Kings Drive to Henley between 9.30am to 3.30pm each day from Monday 27 February until Friday 3 March. Please look at West Sussex’s website for further information.
From the fantastic reaction to the village gates and to conversations with residents we know that speed through the village is a major concern. With all Parish Council initiatives for roads in our village we need to collect data to submit with any road proposals to West Sussex. Speedwatch is one way which we can do this but it does rely on volunteers. If you want to get involved there would be a short training session which we will provide and you can then join the list of volunteers and get Speedwatching.

Mike Noble, the head of the Parish Council’s highways committee met up with a band of volunteers from West Sussex County Council as well as a volunteer from the village and a parish council volunteer to dig holes and install the village gates. The gates were funded through the New Homes Bonus and thanks to the hardy volunteers who turned up on a frosty morning there were no labour costs. The gates have been installed on the A286 village entrance as well as the A272 entrance and will hopefully act as a reminder to drivers that they are entering a village and encourage drivers to slow down. A great example of what can be achieved through volunteering whether on the Parish Council or otherwise. Thank you to all involved.
The next village volunteer project is the burial ground tidy up on 14 January and if you are interested in joining the list of volunteers for this project please contact the parish clerk.
