Welcome to The Worth Parish Council Website
Welcome

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.

30/12/14 Copthorne scoping report

The Copthorne & Worth Ward Neighbourhood Plan Subcommittee has now released its Draft Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report for a five-week formal public consultation. The report can be found here: http://www.copthorneplan.org.uk A paper copy will be made available in the WPC office during normal office hours. Comments on this Scoping Report can be made during consultation period which ends on Friday 30th January 2015. Please send or email your responses to Worth Parish Council?. A Sustainability Appraisal is an integral part of the Neighbourhood Plan making process and will help to ensure that our Plan makes an effective contribution to 'sustainable development'. This Scoping Report establishes the baseline information about the Ward and identifies issues of particular importance that should be considered in developing the Copthorne Neighbourhood Plan. It also provides a Sustainability Framework by which emerging policies and proposals will be tested for Sustainability and provides the opportunity for plans to be improved. We would welcome your views on the economic, social and environmental characteristics identified for the Ward, and the sustainability issues, objectives and indicators laid out in the scoping report. --------------

30/12/14 Resurfacing work on worth way

I am emailing you to give early notice that the section of Worth Way between Crawley Down and East Grinstead will be closed for a number of weeks in the spring/summer. This will be due to planned surface improvement work, paid for by s106 money from the woodlands close development in Crawley Down. As yet I do not have specific timings or a start date but I will keep you informed as things develop in case you should receive any queries regarding the works please forward them to me and I will respond directly. It would be great if you could publicise the closure via your websites or newsletters so that residents are kept up to date and fully informed, and I will update you with more details as they become available. In the meantime if there is anything else you would like to know please feel free to contact me.
