26 August 2019 - Kingston Housing Needs Survey
Please take part
Kingston Parish Council has commissioned Action in Rural Sussex to undertake a survey in order to better understand the nature and scale of housing needs in the parish.
We know anecdotally that residents are concerned about affordable housing and housing suitable for older people and those with additional needs but need more accurate information before the Council can consider any further action.
The survey is confidential and will be distributed in September/October. An independent analysis of the results will be provided in a report for the Council.
Contact Chris Moulder Vice Chair KPC if you have queries about the survey firstname.lastname@example.org
You can find out more about local and national housing initiatives at:

05 March 2019 - Could you be interested in becoming a Parish Councillor?
The term of office for the current Parish Council will soon be concluded (yes, we’ve been going for four years!), and local elections will take place on 2 May. There are currently five members of the council, but we have the capacity to elect seven councillors.
At our meeting on 13 March at 7pm at the Community Pavilion we will spend some time talking about what our responsibilities are and what we’ve been able to achieve over the past four years, in order to (hopefully) encourage others to become councillors. If you’re interested, why not come along? You won’t be committing to anything but if you would like to join us we can talk through the nomination process (which isn’t onerous).
If you can’t make the meeting and you are interested in becoming a Parish Councillor, please do give me a ring on 01273 475148, or email me on Fiona.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chair, Kingston Parish Council
