Clerk, Rudgwick Parish Council
The following has been brought to the Council's attention:
"Sometime on Monday evening someone deposited a large boot full of junk in our field. We had to clear the area so that we could get through the gate.
We contacted HDC and someone called us back and we gave the details. She said we shouldn’t have moved the rubbish as moving it onto the verge could be called fly tipping!!
Anyway, she is going to arrange for the rubbish to be removed and we have to pay a £50 charge."
What should you do if you are in this situation: try and move as little as possible and report the fly tipping to West Sussex County Council on
Jonna, Clerk to Rudgwick Parish Council
As part of the traffic calming scheme two trees were felled in Church Street. The Council were investing the replacement of the trees and were informed by West Sussex County Council that the preferred method is for the new trees to become the responsibility of the County Council. As such a donation of £150.00 per tree is required to be made.
At a recent Parish Council meeting it was suggested that members of the public may like to become involved in the project, if you would like to sponsor a tree please contact the Clerk.
