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.

Please note that there are no jet aircraft displays at Goodwood Revival. All of the above displays have been approved by the CAA in line with our usual procedures and a maximum display period

is 15 minutes. The only variable here is the weather, so some of the above timings may slip out of necessity.

All of the visiting traffic during the three event days is helicopter only, which arrives and departs on the main runway (RWY14-32) but exceptionally, there may be some helicopter traffic that

arrives on RWY06 and departs from RWY24. Runway 06-24 is closed to fixed wing traffic until the 30th September and RWY10-28 will be closed until later in October. The helicopter parking area

is west of the main runway and in line with our changed procedures from 2019, helicopter ground running will be limited to reduce any noise impact. These procedures worked well in 2019, to

the extent that we had no adverse community comment about ground running noise from helicopters.

Helicopter pleasure flying will operate from an area to the south east/west of the main runway.
