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.

West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service

fbrescue_badgev2.pngRespect the Emergency Services

With the impact of COVID-19, we are asking people not to take risks, putting additional pressures on our emergency services.

Injuries can be prevented by following the Firework Code. If you do suffer a burn, ensure you:

· Cool the burn under cold running water for at least ten minutes.

· After the burn has been cooled, cover it with cling film or a clean plastic bag.

· Call 999 if necessary. Always seek medical advice for a baby or child that has been burned.”

The Firework Code:

· Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable, and ensure it finishes before 11pm

· Only buy fireworks which carry the CE mark, keep them in a closed box and use them one at a time

· Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary

· Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back

· Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks

· Never return to a firework once it has been lit

· Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them

· Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators

· Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire

· Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving.

You can be fined up to £5,000 and imprisoned for up to 6 months for selling or using fireworks illegally. You could also get an on-the-spot fine of £90.

Fireworks can also cause a great deal of distress to animals. We are supporting RSPCA’s ‘Bang Out Of Order’ campaign, encouraging the responsible use of fireworks and the adoption of tighter regulations concerning their use.
