East Preston Neighbourhood Plan
You live in East Preston, so have a say. Along with other Parishes, East Preston is preparing a Neighbourhood Plan. In accordance with the Localism Act 2011 local participation in the development of a village should be driven by its residents. A Neighbourhood plan is therefore needed which will provide a framework against which all future developments will be assessed. At present a steering group of eleven parishioners have come forward to lead the plan. There are also four focus groups to put the plan together. Read more about the Neighbourhood Plan.
East Preston Official Guide and Map (2013-2014)
Click here if you want to view the new East Preston Guide. You can also pick up a hard copy of the guide from many shops across the village, the Library, some surgeries and the Council Office. We've extracted three pages from the Guide to update the East Preston History page of this site.
Parish Council Newsletter

Village Website Mailing List
You may recall that we had a 'Newsletter Signup' facility on this website. We've now decided to close this, as we were not sending regular newsletters out. We have emailed everyone on that emailing list to say that we're closing it. The names and emails have now been deleted. If you want to keep up to date by getting regular email news about life in the village (apart from visiting this site of course) we suggest you sign up to the Parish Council email list. Click for more information and a signup form.
There are a number of job vacancies at businesses or organisations in East Preston Village. If you're looking for work or are keen to volunteer to help, please visit the local job vacancies page. If you have a vacancy within the village, its free to advertise it here.
We've added a new section to the Village website. The Angmering-on-Sea Residents Association are the first residents association to have a dedicated page on the site. If you'd like a page for your residents association, and don't have your own website, please take a look at what we can do for you.
How can you help?
We've started a SPORTS section and we're inviting local clubs to contribute. So far, there has been limited response to our invitation. If you can contribute for your sports, please let us know so we can get this part of the website (and you!) active. We know there are some organisations in the village that are missing from our ORGANISATIONS list and we often hear about EVENTS too late. Please add your events to the East Preston Village website.
This is as much your website as it is ours - so please get involved and help us to build it into something really good. If you'd like more information, find out why we created the East Preston website.
We look forward to your support and contributions
