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.
Coronavirus - Lavant Support Group
Lavant Parish Council has been working with Lavant Churches to enable support to those who need it during this challenging time. As restrictions are slowly being lifted, and the number of contacts being made having reduced to zero over the most recent weeks, it has been agreed to withdraw the dedicated phone number and email contact points. However, if requirements demand it in the future, the local group will be put back into operation.
Please continue to look at the up-to-date advice from Public Health England about staying well and safe.
Thank you to everyone who offered to help support others whilst this group has been operating.
