Following the resignation of Councillor Heather Butler notice is hereby given of a vacancy in the Offiice of Councillor for the Parish Council.  Details are here


Each year a smaller authority’s Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) needs to be reviewed by an external auditor appointed by Smaller Authorities’ Audit Appointments Ltd. The unaudited AGAR has been published with this notice. As it has yet to be reviewed by the appointed auditor, it is subject to change as a result of that review.

Any person interested has the right to inspect and make copies of the accounting records for the financial year to which the audit relates and all books, deeds, contracts, bills, vouchers, receipts and other documents relating to those records must be made available for inspection by any person interested.  More information on how to access the accounts is here

Consultation on Beach Chalet Letting Policy

In response to a request from Rottingdean Parish Council to move to a 5 year fixed term license for all licensees, a consultation on Brighton and Hove City Council's beach chalet letting policy has been announced and can be accessed via the link here 

BHCC are seeking the views of chalet tenants and those who would like to rent a chalet in order to inform a report for the Tourism Equalities Communities and Culture Committee (TECC).  The consultation period runs until Sunday 27 September and the report will be presented to the TECC Committee on 19 November.

Traffic Monitoring 
0n 31 October 2017 a study of Traffic travelling eastward from Brighton by East Sussex Traffic Monitoring Unit, was commissioned by the Parish Council.

The results tell us that at peak times the queue from Brighton towards Rottingdean stretches beyond Greenways roundabout past the speed camera towards  Roedean holding on average, in the busy period, 342 vehicles.  Such lengthy queues impact on more than just the congestion on the A259 but also affects the flow in the High Street and has a knock on impact in the AQMA. The Parish Council continues to work with BHCC to seek ways to improve matters. Data can be viewed here .
