For the latest information on the re-opening of our outdoor leisure facilities including parks and outdoor gyms please see our Covid-19 Community Support Page.

Mid Sussex District Council is committed to managing all public parks and open spaces to the highest possible standards.

Parks improvements

In Spring, we asked you what we could do to improve four of our parks. Thank you to everyone who filled in a questionnaire. Landscape architects have prepared draft designs based on what you said.

The designs show long term plans for how the parks could be improved over time.

We plan to continue to refine these draft masterplans based on your feedback.

Take a good look at the emerging themes, the draft masterplan and the list of potential projects and complete the online questionnaire.

Deadline for responses has been extended to midnight Sunday 19th July 2020.

Events in parks

The Council’s Parks and Open Spaces play host to a varied programme of events throughout the year. These range from:

  • Fairs
  • Circuses
  • Fetes
  • Village days
  • Bonfire nights
  • Fireworks displays
  • And more

We accept enquiries from all organisations. Our aim is to put on events that will be positive for the local community.

Events take a lot of planning. We can offer you help to do this – but you need to contact us as early as possible.

If you think your event may be higher risk in terms of safety or community impact – please fill in our Safety Advisory Group – event notification form.

Please note: Barbeques are not allowed unless booked with us as part of an organised event.
