Welcome | Worth Parish Council
Welcome to The Worth Parish Council Website

Welcome to the Parish Council's Website. It is hoped that you will find it interesting and informative.

It must be emphasised from the beginning that this site is designed to keep local residents informed about the Parish Council's activities. (After all, it is your money the Council is spending !). The website is not intended to duplicate any of the information contained in the existing Websites for both Copthorne and Crawley Down, the villages that comprise Worth Parish. That cannot be emphasised too strongly. Obviously there are links to both Village Websites as can be seen below, and it is to those that you should refer for information about local activities and organisations.

25/11/14 Festive parking boost in Mid sussex

In the run up to festive celebrations, Mid Sussex District Council is offering an early boost to local shoppers and traders by providing all-day town centre parking for just £1.

The Council is helping to spread the Christmas cheer with discounted parking on Saturdays in the towns of Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath. The £1 parking offer will only be available in long stay car parks owned by Mid Sussex District Council.

As normal in the District, parking will continue to be completely free on Sundays and Bank Holidays, including Boxing Day. The £1 festive parking discount will be available on Saturday 6th, 13th and 20th of December at the following locations:

Queens Crescent car park – Burgess Hill
Station Road car park – Burgess Hill
The Vicarage car park – East Grinstead
Norton House car park – East Grinstead
Franklynn Road car park – Haywards Heath

In addition the Council is supporting local Town Councils by providing free parking after 1pm on selected days.

East Grinstead Town Council will have free parking on 6th December, encouraging locals to visit the town centre and start tackling those Christmas lists.

Burgess Hill Town Council has organised celebrations on Saturday 22nd November. Some real reindeer will pay a visit to the town and, among other entertainment, residents can get in the spirit with a skate on the artificial ice rink, singing along with musical performances or watching the lights switch on at 4.45pm.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be able to take advantage of the reduced parking charges when they arrive to be part of the fun in the Orchards in Haywards Heath, enjoying the entertainment until the lights are switched on at 5pm. Fireworks will wrap up the day from 5.30pm in Victoria Park.

“As the festive season gets closer we want to support our residents in their preparations and help boost local businesses,” said Councillor Gary Marsh, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Property.

“By working with the Town Councils we aim to help bring people into our towns where they can see the great range of services and goods on offer locally. By supporting our traders we are also supporting the local economy and jobs in the area, so I would encourage everyone to come into town for some fun and festive cheer.”

Across Mid Sussex, 17 car parks have now achieved the Park Mark Safer Parking Award, creating a safer environment for users and their vehicles. For more details about parking across the District, please visit www.midsussex.gov.uk/parking.
