Year Month Meeting Type
Although chaired by the Chairman of Washington Parish Council, the Annual Parish Meeting is not a Council meeting. It is a meeting of the electorate of Washington to have their say on local issues. The guest speaker for this year's meeting is Arundel and South Downs MP Andrew Griffith with reports from our local County and District Councillors, the Village Hall and the Horsham Neighbourhood Policing Team. Please see attached agenda for details and admission information. Refreshments and wine will be served. .
Extraordinary Meeting of the Council to discuss its formal comments on: the Rampion 2 Targeted Onshore Cable Route Consultation 18th October-29th November 2022 which affects the Washington Parish; and the final consultation of the Boundary Commission for England Revised Proposals for Constituencies which also affects the Washington Parish.
The Parish Council seeks the views of residents for both these significant consultations. Contact the Council via the Clerk if you would like to submit written comments for consideration or to attend the meeting. Contact details are on the attached agenda.
The Council meeting will commence at the earlier time of 7:00pm. Members of the Rampion2 project team will be addressing the Council on the potential onshore cable route changes affecting the Washington parish: three modified routes, one of which is under the village green ("Washington Recreation Ground"), and three alternative accesses in the parish. The proposals form part of a targeted six-week public consultation on potential onshore alternatives and modifications to the proposed cable corridor between Clymping Beach and Bolney.
Please note that this is not a public meeting. The public are welcome to attend subject to the venue's safe seating capacity and to speak during the public session at the Chairman's discretion. There will be an opportunity for the public to meet the Rampion2 team, express views and ask questions on the proposals at one of four drop-in events. One will be at Washington Village Memorial Hall, School Lane, Washington RH20 4AP on Saturday 12th November 2022, 1-8pm. Visit their website at: Rampion2.com/consultation for details of the proposals and an online consultation response form to have your say. There is also information on all four drop-in events.
Washington Parish Council will be considering a formal consultation response at its Planning & Transport Committee meeting on Monday 21st November at the Washington Village Memorial Hall.
