As Chairman of Itchingfield Parish Council, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new website. It contains lots of information about the Parish and ongoing developments as well as information from many organisations, societies and sports clubs that operate in the village. Please see the link below to the Welcome Book to Barns Green & Itchingfield.
Barns Green and Itchingfield is a wonderful place to live and those that live here are very lucky. However, it is easy to take what we have for granted so it is important that as many residents as possible get involved in what is happening in the area. There are an increasing number of new building developments planned and underway and this will always be a key area that has to be closely monitored and managed.
One of the biggest issues we have had to deal with in recent times was the issue of the new Ashmiles estate being planned and built along with the new school. We made great efforts with this potentially contentious project to involve as many villagers as possible in the lengthy discussions and planning process and as it nears completion I am delighted with the way this is turning out. The new school will provide a key hub for the village and ensure that childrens’ education continues in the village for many years to come. No doubt there will be many other tricky planning issues which we will have to address in the coming months and years.
The Parish Council has to deal with a whole host of other issues which affect our residents and day to day living. On our new website we hope to keep you abreast of everything that is going on and I would urge you to look at it whenever you can and get in touch with us if there are issues which you feel need to be looked at.
I do hope that you find the website of use to you. There are some contact details included so do feel free to contact the Parish Council if there is anything that we can help you with.
With regard to the Welcome Book on the link below, please be aware that this booklet was published a couple of years ago as a welcome to the Ashmiles residents so contact information contained in it may be out of date and should be checked with the BIGMAG contacts page.
