Residents of Clappers Lane will hold a meeting in the Village Hall on Friday 7th July at 7.30pm to discuss parking at the southern end of Clappers Lane. All villagers are welcome to attend and contribute to the discussion. The aim of the meeting is to look for solutions to ease parking for those without off-road parking — specifically residents between 5 and 27 Clappers Lane.
Most of us are aware of a number of recent incidents because of too many cars parked along a very narrow stretch of Clappers Lane and very large vehicles travelling regularly along the lane causing obstructions and accidents. It has also had a knock-on effect for parking in The Street.
Do come along with comments and suggestions. If you can’t attend and want to contribute your ideas, please email Linda Dyos at email@example.com or pop a note through her letterbox at number 11 in advance of the meeting.
Miles Firth and Linda Dyos
Horsham District is about to introduce car parking charges. We live in Mid-Sussex District so, obviously, we will be exempt from these charges. Er, no, apparently not. And both Henfield and Steyning are in Horsham District. You probably park briefly in one or the other on several occasions a week. Much the cheapest way to use these car parks on a regular basis will be by purchase of a disc*. Luckily, Horsham District is allowing Mid-Sussex residents to buy their discs so you will not need to bribe an acquaintance in Steyning to secure one for you. During March and April only, you can get two for £12. But the scheme goes live on Monday 3rd April so you will need to order your discs this month.

*The alternative is to buy a pay-and-display ticket each time you visit one of the car parks. This will cost you £39 a year assuming that you park just once a week.
