Creating a new vision for Horsham town centre has been listed as a key priority for the area.

In today’s County Times, a ‘place plan’ for Horsham has been produced, a boom in rail travel has led to a massive increase in passengers, and a local man has been jailed for ten years for sexual offences.

A memorial will take place for an ‘inspirational’ young man who died in a crash, a family has been reunited with a paramedic who delivered their baby girl, and two parked cars were badly damaged in a mystery hit and run.

Meanwhile, we reveal a detention centre for failed asylum seekers has cost the taxpayer millions of pounds, the family of a former head teacher has made a life-saving donation to his old school, and a cyclist has completed an around the world journey.

In the South Downs edition, the council has defended its consultation about a proposed schools reorganisation, confusion reigns over a tree that has damaged a pavement, and a campaign has been launched to improve a bus shelter.
