Mid Sussex District Council understands the pressures that residents are facing during this cost of living crisis and are introducing a number of tools to help provide support this Winter:
- Winter Support guide – Support items include Affordable Warmth, Financial Support and Food Provision.
- The warmer Homes campaign encourages eligible residents to apply for available funding to improve the energy efficiency of their homes thus reducing their energy use and helping to lower bills.
- The dedicated Cost of Living Support webpage (www.midsussex.gov.uk/cols) will hold all the support available in one place to make it simpler to access support.
- Community Connections Update 2022/23 – Community Connections Directory of Services for Older People in Mid Sussex provides easily accessible information about services for older people.
We understand that the roadworks for the Openreach broadband project in the centre of the village have been delayed. We don’t yet know why. We will let you know when we get a clearer picture. In the meantime keep watching out! for news.
The Parish Council was advised at a virtual meeting with MSDC this morning that three out of the four sites have been removed from Bolney in the new review of the District Plan. This will reduce the housing numbers from 261 to 200. The supporting documents should be made available this week at which point the Parish Council will start working on analysing them in detail and the potential impact on Bolney. MSDC have indicated that the public consultation should start in early November at which point everyone will be encouraged to submit their views to the District Council.
We are currently seeking feedback as part of our work towards the next High Weald AONB Management lan, which is due to be published in 2024.
A draft version of the next Plan will be available for formal public consultation in late Spring 2023.
In the meantime, we are keen to gather early feedback on some of the new topics we are hoping to include in the next Plan. Your comments are important; they can help us shape the next Management Plan and how the High Weald AONB is managed for the next 5 years.
Please find a link below to a quick survey on the proposed new content – you do not have to be familiar with the current Management Plan to take part in this survey, however you can access the current High Weald AONB Management Plan here if you wish. The survey is open until the end of November 2022.

Openreach is due to start work on Monday in the centre of the village on enabling works for the installation of the fibre broadband. This will involve some lane closures with traffic lights starting near the Bolney Exchange in the central part of The Street and Paynesfield. Work is also due to start in Ryecroft Road in the next fortnight.
There will need to be some road closures where the roads are too narrow to safely pass the works. We will pass on any information about this as soon as we receive it.
This is obviously going to cause some disruption for us all but we will all benefit from the ability to have access to ultrafast broadband even if some don’t need or want it now.
