All Cisterns Go!

 

The long-anticipated refurbishment of the Public Conveniences in Mill Lane is due to get underway on Monday 9 October.

 

The £60+k project, largely being met by S106 funds released by HDC (with the difference being met by the Parish Council), will see the existing layout removed and replaced by three modern unisex units. 

 

Designed to be easier to keep clean and maintain and be less conducive to anti-social behaviour, the Parish Council sees the work as vital to helping ensure that the Village Centre remains attractive to residents and visitors alike.

 

Unfortunately there is no alternative provision planned during the work, which should take several weeks.

HIGH STREET PLANTER

 

 SPONSORSHIP

 

 

  AN EXCITING NEW

 

 INITIATIVE

 

 

 

 FOR 2017 !!!

 

 

                              

 

100% Success !

 

                            

 

Billingshurst will be a prettier and more colourful place this summer, thanks to the success of a new initiative by the Parish Council.

 

The Council offered businesses and organisations the opportunity to sponsor planters lining the High Street.

 

Attractive signage either side will enable sponsors to promote their names to a wide audience at the same time as showing their support for the community.

 

Funds from the scheme will be used to provide more attractive planting schemes in the troughs, which help bring colour to the main thoroughfare throughout the spring and summer.

 

The Council’s Property Committee backed the suggestion enthusiastically at a recent meeting.

 

Clerk Greg Burt said “This is a great way for the Council to work with local businesses to make the village centre even more attractive for residents and visitors alike".  

 

Bearing in mind how successful this initiative has been, we are now considering other sponsorship ideas and are compiling a waiting list ready for 2018.  If you would like your details to be kept on file ready for next year's projects, please email Office Manager Liz Berry on liz@billingshurst.gov.uk
