Fly tipping

Fly Tipping - Important Information

The following has been brought to the Council's attention:

"Sometime on Monday evening someone deposited a large boot full of junk in our field. We had to clear the area so that we could get through the gate.

We contacted HDC and someone called us back and we gave the details. She said we shouldn’t have moved the rubbish as moving it onto the verge could be called fly tipping!!

Anyway, she is going to arrange for the rubbish to be removed and we have to pay a £50 charge."


What should you do if you are in this situation: try and move as little as possible and report the fly tipping to West Sussex County Council on

Hawkridge Housing Admissions Policy - Rudgwick Parish Council Statement

The Council has been made aware of certain concerns within the village regarding the admissions policy at Hawkridge, which has been under the management of Mount Green Housing Association since 2017. Like all housing associations Mount Green are under pressure from regulators to fill vacancies within very short periods, but they continue to give priority to local people who satisfy the relevant criteria for sheltered social housing when vacancies arise.

We are satisfied that Mount Green are operating their admissions policy in a manner that is consistent with both the terms of Miss Briggs’ will and the governing documentation of the Hawkridge Housing Association.

As Hawkridge Housing Association no longer exists, and its previous committee members are no longer involved, anyone who retains any concerns about this should be directed to Mount Green Housing Association. Details can be found on their website: "
