Proposals to change the boundaries and structure of parishes in the Horsham District are being considered following the end of the consultation and recommendations will be made to Horsham District Council later this month.

In February 2012 the council started a community governance review where interested people and organisations were invited to submit proposals to changes to the boundaries or structure of parishes by the end of May 2012.

Members of the Council’s Electoral Arrangements Committee have now considered the submissions and further representations following the end of the consultation and will make the following recommendations to Council:

- no change needed to number of parish councillors across all parishes

- a change of boundary so Southwater Parish would include the Millfield development

- that Storrington and Sullington Parish is no longer split into two wards

The meeting of Horsham District Council, which is held in public, will take place at the council’s offices in North Street, Horsham, on Wednesday 13 February 2013 at 6pm.

Horsham District Council intends to publish its final recommendations by March 2013 and any changes will come into effect at the next full election of parish councillors in the Horsham District in May 2015.
