Novington Lane will be closed in the area of North Hall/Little Clears between 16th and 20th July. This is likely to have consequences for the bus service, and residents are advised to check with Compass Travel (01903 690025) for details of these.
In addition, residents should note that North Barnes Farm track is a no-through road. Diversion signs were pointing traffic to this route, but it is hoped that this will be corrected soon.
Privacy and data management statement
East Chiltington Parish Council, which manages this website, takes the protection of your data seriously. Our aim is to provide a personalised and valuable service whilst safeguarding our users’ privacy. Collecting some personal information is necessary if we are to satisfy the expectations and requirements of our users and we have set out below what we will do with your personal information.
East Chiltington’s Trees of Note
The Parish Council is supporting the collection of a list of some of the fine trees which exist within the parish. At present only three trees in the parish have known Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs), so we would like to ensure that the list is up to date and correct.
There are also many trees which should be protected but which are not on any TPO list. There is therefore nothing to prevent internet or energy contractors carrying out inappropriate work without permission, for instance by lopping or topping to allow overhead cables to be slung through the tree canopy.
To help compile the list, of known and suggested TPOs it would be much appreciated if residents could send photos, and the exact location of any particularly handsome and important tree which might qualify for protection to Julia Tingle, via the contact details on the Parish website: http://eastchiltington.net/parish-council/clerk-and-councillors/
If you know the Ordnance Survey reference number, this would be much appreciated. For existing TPOs, if the TPO number is known, this information would be extremely helpful.
Lewes District Council would decide whether they are prepared to place TPOs on those suggestions which are sent to the Tree Officer.
In 2016, East Chiltington resident Justin Fleming and his son Kristian undertook the gruelling 13,000 km Peking to Paris Rally in a 1972 Ford Capri. Read on for the full story....
