Welcome to Lavant Parish Council

Lavant is a rural parish with an electorate of approximately 1347 in 750 households and at present a precept of £27,420. The parish is just north of Chichester on either side of the A286 Midhurst Road.

Further details about the village can be found in the Lavant Neighbourhood Development Plan

The community is a vibrant one served well by its pubs, restaurants, schools, churches and village hall. The closeness of Goodwood adds to the activities in the parish.

Lavant is to be found in a beautiful part of West Sussex and yet is within easy reach of major urban centres on the coast from Brighton to Southampton. The close proximity of Chichester means access to both mainline trains and buses with direct links to Gatwick Airport and London, Brighton and Portsmouth and also across country to the West, the Midlands and the North.

Parishioners can, of course, use the varied commercial, leisure and entertainment facilities of Chichester with ease. The coast is also very close at Bosham and the Chichester Harbour area, the Witterings, Selsey and Bognor Regis.

Government Covid Advice - Omicron Variant



November 2021
  • All contacts of suspected Omicron cases must self-isolate for 10 days, regardless of their vaccination status. They will be contacted by Test and Trace.
  • All international arrivals must take a day 2 PCR test and self-isolate until they receive a negative result.
  • From today, unless exempt, you must wear a face covering on public transport and in shops.

Vaccine programme

The government is also encouraging everyone to make sure that they access the vaccine when they are due to have it, whether this is a second or booster dose. Second dose vaccinations are now available to all young people aged 16 to 17 from 12 weeks after their first dose, and the booster jabs are now available to over 40s. Yesterday, the Health Secretary confirmed that the government has accepted the advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to expand the Covid-19 booster vaccine programme to those aged 18 to 39, no sooner than three months after their second dose. The JCVI also advises providing a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine for young people aged 12 to 15 years, no sooner than three months after their first dose.
