Welcome to Lavant Parish Council

Lavant is a rural parish with an electorate of approximately 1330 in 750 households and at present a precept of £30,738.00. 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.

Resilience and emergencies team

There is a 90 % probability of Heat-Health Alert criteria being met between 1200 on Tuesday 09 Aug and 1800 on Saturday 13 Aug in parts of England.

High pressure dominating this week, with fine and dry conditions across most of the country, prolonged sunny spells and light to moderate breezes. Temperatures rising from warm or very warm to locally hot in most regions, with a focus of the warmest weather in central-southern England. Headline max temperatures reaching mid 30's by Friday.

View the full warning at the Met Office Heat Health Watch site.

Hot weather can affect your health. The people most likely to be affected are the elderly, the very young, and people with pre-existing medical conditions.

If you know or look after someone that may be susceptible to the effects of this hot weather period please help make sure that they stay cool and well, and if possible check in advance that they are prepared for this hot spell.

Please follow this advice to keep cool and comfortable and reduce health risks:

  • Shut windows and pull down the shades when it is hotter outside. If it's safe, open them for ventilation when it is cooler.
  • Avoid the heat: stay out of the sun and don't go out between 11am and 3pm (the hottest part of the day).
  • Keep rooms cool by using shades or reflective material outside the windows. If this isn't possible, use light-coloured curtains and keep them closed (metallic blinds and dark curtains can make the room hotter).
  • Have cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water.
  • Drink cold drinks regularly, such as water and fruit juice. Avoid tea, coffee and alcohol.
  • Plan ahead to make sure you have enough supplies, such as food, water and any medications you need.
  • Identify the coolest room in the house so you know where to go to keep cool.
  • Wear loose, cool clothing and a hat if you go outdoors.

Also, please don’t forget about the animals in your care and view the top tips for keeping pets cool in hot weather by using the RSPCA link below.
