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

Parks improvements

Landscape architects have started preparing masterplans for improvements at four of our parks. Thank you to everyone who filled in a questionnaire. 

Watch this space for updates on how your responses will help shape the future of Victoria Park (Haywards Heath) St Johns Park (Burgess Hill) Mount Noddy (East Grinstead) and Hemsleys / Finches Field (Pease Pottage)

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.
