Highways and Rights of Way

Please find attached a notice in relation to a temporary traffic regulation order which the County Council will make and will be operative at the location and on the dates and times indicated.

ROAD CLOSURE Public Notice Severals Road


Bepton has only a few roads. The main ones are Bepton Road (through the village), Severals Road (towards the A272), Bugshill Lane (towards the Church) and Bell Lane (towards Cocking). There are a number of smaller roads, some of which are unmade. The Councillors do ensure that potholes, and other issues with the roads, are reported to the County Council for them to take appropriate action. However, if you want to report potholes yourself, you can do so directly to West Sussex County Council using their new smartphone app (love west sussex), by calling them, or via their website. Or you can contact one of the Councillors and we will be happy to pursue this for you.

We have a Winter Emergency Plan in the event that roads become impassable. Here’s a link to the blog post about it. You can download a copy of the plan Bepton Winter Emergency Plan 18-19 Bepton Parish Winter Plan Roads.

Bepton has nearly 15 miles of footpaths, bridleways and restricted byways. The Parish Council is keen to make sure that they are passable and in good repair. The Councillors do walk them from time to time to check this. If you are aware of a footpath or byeway which isn’t usable, please contact Cllr Julia Wilkinson or one of the other Councillors.
