We would like to remind dog owners that until 31st July dogs should be kept on leads no longer that 2 metres long in the SSSI areas (the South Downs) to keep them away from ground-nesting birds, leverets, fawns, etc. Also, dogs should be kept under control in areas where there is livestock, which includes collecting your dog’s faeces as there is growing evidence that there is a link between two diseases in livestock and the faeces of infected dogs.
The warm, dry, sunny spell (and the current Covid-19 situation) has caused water use to increase dramatically. South East Water would like to remind users of the importance of saving water.
Metis Homes, the developer of the brickworks site, has started a consultation with local residents. Covid-19 forced the cancellation of Metis Homes’ face-to-face engagement but residents can view and comment on the plans via the virtual consultation at: http://www.thebrickworks.consultationonline.co.uk. This consultation closes on 29th May so please take the time to look at the plans as they will have an impact on Bepton residents.
Please visit http://www.recyleforwestsussex.org for more information on what can be taken to the sites and the current rules.
