Norman’s Notes – March 2018

Normans Notes

Norman Webster, Town and District Councillor for Mid Sussex and Cabinet Member for Community updates us this month.

Keeping up to date with road works

As the summer approaches, he says hopefully, the prospect of road works on dry sunny days looms. If you want to check where road works are scheduled: It is a very long list so click on the Parish heading on the table for an alphabetical listing.

To report potholes, use Love West Sussex App – I use it as often as I can because it provides a record of follow up. But be careful if standing in the road to photograph a pothole; I almost got run over in a quiet close one Sunday afternoon!

Mid Sussex Design Awards

The Mid Sussex Design Awards are to be held this year with entries sought from the end of March until the 18th May. Eligible schemes will be building projects within MSDC completed between 1st July 2015 and 1st July 2018. Full details will be available at  from the end of March including an entry form.

The Awards promote the important role of high quality design in enhancing the distinctive character of Mid Sussex, so that it remains a great place to live and work.

Please email if you have a specific enquiry.

Young Volunteer Awards

You or your employees may know one or two of the many fine young people who volunteer in Mid Sussex. Each year MSDC sponsors this programme so if you want to recognise someone aged14-21 who has completed at least 10 hours of volunteering here’s the place to go:
