Community

If you have issues with any of the services that are NOT provided by the Parish Council as listed below, please call the relevant council provider direct and, also, please let our town clerk know on 01903 812042 or email spcclerk@btconnect.com so that we can monitor the response.

ROAD SWEEPING/LITTER

Road sweeping is the resonsibility of WSCC and will be done by machine approximately every 60 days. To supplement this service the Parish Council has employed its own sweeper/litter picker who primarily either sweeps or, litter picks the High Street from Church Street to Mouse Lane, on a agreed schedule 7 days a week. In addition he litter picks or sweeps a few other roads, twittens and paths on a 1 or 2 times a week basis. These are: High Street/Jarvis lane to Church Street, footpath from jarvis Lane to Church Street, Charlton Street (Whites) to junction of Mill Lane, Breach Close to Tannyard Lane, Elm Grove Lane, Tanyard Lane from junction with High Street and Shooting Field and Church Lane, twitten from Charlton Street to High Street car park and High Street, all play areas, access road to Fletchers Croft car park, access road (School Lane) to Steyning Centre. Any problems in these roads/paths/twittens should be reported to the Town Clerk on 01903 812042 or email spcclerk@btconnect.com

Steyning would not be as litter free as it is without the support of our volunteer army of litter-pickers who unstintingly turn out in all weathers to do their bit for the community. If you would like to join this team then please contact the Town Clerk on 01903 812042 or email spcclerk@btconnect.com
