  • Parish Council Statement on the High Street Air Quality Measures.   The Parish Council wrote to the joint Parish Council/Brighton and Hove City Council working group on the 29th November 2022 requesting that the Environment, Transport and Sustainability Committee should be asked to consider adopting the hatching near the junction of the A259 as a permanent measure and removing the planter for a period of 12-months. This would enable any positive or negative impact on air quality of its removal to be measured and respond to the safety concerns expressed by a significant number of Rottingdean residents  This statement was ratified at the Parish Council meeting on 5th December 2022. See here for more.

Rottingdean Parish Council 

Rottingdean is the only Parish Council  within the Brighton and Hove City Council Area 

Electors within the area of Rottingdean Parish elect 9 Councillors on the same 4 year timetable that applies to the City Council. The next election is due in May 2023. Only if 9 people put there names forward is there an election put to a vote. 

None of your Parish Councillors take a salary. They meet monthly, normally in the Whiteway Centre, and all residents are welcome to attend these meetings. The agenda for these meetings is published at least 3 working days in advance and placed on the Parish Council notice board on the High Street side of the Reading Room and also here

The Parish Council closely monitors proposals that affect the Village and seeks to influence decisions when necessary. Our planning consultative panel considers every planning application in the Parish, whilst our Beacon Hill Working Group works to develop and improve our nature reserve.

Rottingdean Council is funded by a small amount added to the Council tax (the Council tax precept) that is agreed in April each year. Funds are used to improve to the Village environment and make grants and donations to initatives which benefit the Community. Our grant application form and guidance can be found here
