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.

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. --------------

17/11/14 W.S.C.C. Looking for Volunteers

West Sussex County Councilís Young People Service are looking to recruit volunteers (over 21 years old) to help support young people who are not in education, training and employment or are at risk of offending behaviour. We have a variety of volunteer roles available and provide training and on-going support for all these roles. We are particularly interested in looking for Appropriate Adults, supporting young people in custody to safeguard their rights and welfare and will be running the training for this role shortly. In addition we also use volunteers in Reparation, working alongside young people whilst they do their community payback; Referral Order Panel members, ensuring young people take responsibility for their crimes; Find It Out Shop volunteers supporting young people with advice and guidance and a variety of roles supporting group work with the Youth Service in particular with young carers and young people with learning difficulties or additional needs. If you are interested please contact the Volunteer Unit on 03302 228686 or email volunteerunit@westsussex.gov.uk for further information and an application pack.
