The Parish Council has recently set up a sub-committee called: The Barns Green & Itchingfield Traffic Group. The committee plans to measure and monitor traffic flows in our area (volunteers will be needed) and then suggest traffic calming measures. Your concerns, opinions and suggestions on speeding, anti-social driving and infrastructure would be useful so please send them to: info@BGTraffic.co.uk If you see anti-social driving, please don't tolerate it, but report it to: Operation Crackdown. This website is run by the police and logged incidents will add weight to our suggestions for improvements. www.operationcrackdown.org. or Tel: 01243 642222. Also if you see potholes, damage to grass verges, overgrown vegetation, damaged signage please report these to: West Sussex County Council at www.westsussex.gov.org Read More...

New Village Car Park

Published: 19 Jun 16

As many of you will have noticed the new Village Car Park beside the Village Hall has now been completed. This is the first project which came through the Development Fund money which Itchingfield Parish Council secured as part of the agreement with Berkeley Homes and WSCC in relation to the new Ashmiles Development. We are extremely pleased with it and judging from the feedback we have had so are most people. Hopefully it will meet the needs of the local community for many years to come. As part of the work the original car park at the front of the Village Hall was also redone and we now have a total of about 50 marked car parking spaces plus disabled spaces available. The usage of the Village Hall, Social Club and the Green has increased dramatically in recent years and on busy days parking was becoming a major problem. Now that we have this new facility, we would encourage everyone to use it and in particular would ask all sports clubs to encourage team members and visiting teams to park in it rather than on the grass verges along the lower part of Muntham Drive. Drainage was a major part of the new works and all the drains and pipework from the new car park down Muntham Drive have been renewed or cleaned out. During periods of extremely heavy rain there is still a lot of water that is coming off the fields and land adjoining Muntham Drive and again the Parish Council has taken steps to minimise this. We would like to thank Simon Gale who gave up so much of his time to project manage the building of the new car park and we were also very pleased that we were able to use the services of local companies to do the bulk of the work. Plans are being developed for the next projects on our list and we will update you on those in due course. In the meantime, enjoy the new car park.
