West Chiltington Parish Council
"a village with a past, and a future"
Nestling near the foot of the South Downs between Storrington and Pulborough, some 64 kms from London, the picturesque village of West Chiltington is home to a 12th century church, a beautifully restored windmill and a colourful history dating back to Norman times.
Covering an area of just over 17 sq kms, the parish encompasses a variety of land usage from residential and agricultural, to small commercial business and leisure including a 27 hole golf course.
The Council is the first tier of local government for the parish of West Chiltington and is charged to deliver a range of services at a community level. Members are elected for a term of four years and the works undertaken are funded principally by an annual precept.
The Parish Council is made up of 12 members, chaired by Denis Wright and meets every two months (January, March, May, July, September, and November) on the second Tuesday.
With three committees (Planning, Open Spaces and Finance), recommendations from the Planning Committee, which meet on the first Tuesday each month, are sent to Horsham District Council as part of its consultation process.
