Joint Western Arun Area Committee

Joint Area Committees consider a range of issues concerning the local area, and where relevant make decisions. They are made up of all the local County Councillors and representatives from Arun District, Town and Parish Councils. It is a meeting in public and has a regular talk with us item where the public can ask questions of their local elected representatives.
Meetings happen three times a year in your local area, and are open for anyone to attend. At the meeting Councillors consider a range of issues concerning local residents and where relevant make decisions on things like highways issues and grant funding.

Now that the better weather has arrived gypsie and traveller activity will be on the increase.So, how should you handle traveller movements and deal with unauthorised encampments. The responsibility for taking enforcement action lies primarily with the owner of the land concerned and landowners are expected to take reasonable precautions to prevent encampments. In the first instance you need to identify whose land is being occupied so it is best to report your observations to Arun District Council so that the landowner can be identified and advised accordingly (NB.Gypsies and travellers seen at the side of the road or parked on the edge of the road are probably on West Sussex County Council land and you should advise the County Council accordingly). See the link to the District Council's website for more detailed information and see the full story for the relevant contact details.
