( Volunteers Clearing the River Lavant )

This website provides information about the activities of the Parish Council in the villages of Singleton and Charlton - pretty villages situated in the Lavant Valley, a few miles north of Chichester in West Sussex.

All of our councillors are volunteers and are committed to representing their community. They:

  • give views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect the parish
  • undertake projects and schemes that benefit local residents
  • work in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish
  • alert relevant authorities to problems that arise or work that needs to be undertaken
  • help the other tiers of local government keep in touch with their local communities

We want to work closely with our community and encourage residents to get in touch with us and attend meetings. Please get in touch and join our mailing list, mailchimp

PICTURE OF THE MONTH: It's cold outside! The jury is still out on whether the South Downs will get a dusting of snow this Christmas, but here's a serene snowy image from Mount Caburn, Lewes, taken by Gill Copeland. Let's hope for some bright winter days for walking!

Tree planting brings boost for nature

More than 23,000 trees are being planted this winter across the South Downs National Park to help wildlife flourish and increase resilience to climate change.

Scores of trees are going into the ground at 20 new sites across Sussex and Hampshire.

It’s yet another big step forward as the Trees for the Downscampaign edges closer to its target of planting 100,000 trees across the region. The initiative was launched exactly four years ago and this new phase of planting will mean well over 60,000 new trees across 114 different sites. Find out more here.

Authority welcomes Government pledge

Embrace tranquillity of the South Downs

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – and can also be one of the most stressful.

The sting of the Christmas rush, the biting cold, travelling long distances and relentless multi-tasking to ensure the big day goes to plan are enough to leave anyone feeling a bit frazzled.

But there is an antidote to this hubbub – the amazing tranquillity and serenity of the South Downs National Park.
