South Downs National Park Authority adopts Petworth Neighbourhood Plan
Great news! The Petworth Neighbourhood Plan has been formally ‘adopted’ or ‘made’ by the South Downs National Park Authority. This means it is now an official legal document and all future planning applications must take account of the policies set out within it.
Petworth Town Council Statement regarding the Vision, please click on PTC-Vision statement
Petworth lies in the South Downs National Park in rural West Sussex. The Town Council serves the closely built ancient township close to the National Trust’s property Petworth House, the modern town, and an extensive surrounding rural area.
The total population in Petworth Town Council area is just over 3000 people (The 2011 census recorded 3027).
Petworth people enjoy a very active community with several churches, a public library, several public meeting places, a youth club, and a lunch club for the elderly, and tennis, bowling, football and cricket clubs. There are regular films, a town band, amateur dramatics and the world class annual Petworth Festival which draws music lovers from far and near, and the Fete in the Park, both in the summer.
It is well known as a centre for the antiques trade, and is a thriving shopping and business community. Additionally there are regular farmers markets in the town centre, and monthly book sale supporting the Petworth Society. The Petworth Community Association is the hub for many of Petworth’s activities.
