Welcome to The Pulborough Society 

The Pulborough Society holds seven lively and entertaining meetings a year.

We produce an informative newsletter before each meeting, highlighting issues of concern to the Society and our members.

All our meetings are held in the village hall, and this allows our members to discuss any concerns they might have and how we as a society can help.

The guest speakers at our meetings (see News & Events) are always interesting and diverse;
if you are a non-member and would like to come along and see if the Society has anything to offer you, we charge just 2.

WE NOW HAVE A SELECTION OF GREETINGS CARDS OF PULBOROUGH AVAILABLE AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE HALL AND SOME LOCAL SHOPS.

Next Meeting: 

Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 2.30pm
in The Meadow Hall, Pulborough Village Hall

Following the agenda (below) we will enjoy a talk on the following:

 WOOLBEDING GARDENS


Woolbeding Gardens is a National Trust property and its Head Gardener,
Paul Gallivan, will give an illustrated talk about this lovely place.


AGENDA

In addition to the above we will also talk about:
PLANNING
16/2388 Validated 20th October 2016
Parsons Field Stables Pickhurst Lane Pulborough West Sussex RH20 1DA
Change of use of land to caravan site for stationing of up to three caravans for occupation by gypsy-traveller family with associated development (timber utility shed, utility trailer, septic tank, hard standing and additional landscaping)-part retrospective.

This application was discussed, at the Society meeting, in November 2016, where it was decided that an objection should be lodged, with the Local Planning Authority.
A letter was sent to Horsham District Council, on 21 November 2016, objecting on the grounds that:
The existing planning permission is a temporary one, due to expire in 2019 and was granted to meet the particular circumstances, of the then applicant. It is understood that this person has
now sold the land, to a third party and there is no reason, why a further permission, should be granted.
The proposal represents an intensification of the existing use of this site and represents further incursions, into the rural area, surrounding the existing settlement boundaries.
This site is not one of those contained in the Gypsy and Traveller Sites Allocation identified, by the District Council
