Welcome to Broadbridge Heath Parish Council
The purpose of this site is to provide all residents with information about the Parish Council - its activities and responsibilities.
Broadbridge Heath Parish Council aims to represent the interests of the residents of the parish as a whole and to preserve the environment for the enjoyment of the villagers, visitors and future generations. The Council is responsible for a range of services and also works in partnership with other organisations in the locality.
The Council is always keen to ensure that its priorities and initiatives reflect the wishes of the electorate: all meetings are open to the public and are preceded by a session for public comments. Alternatively, the Clerk or individual Councillors may be contacted if you have any ideas for or concerns about the parish, or any issues with which we may be able to help.

As part of the current WSCC IWP programme of works we will shortly be undertaking Phase 2 of the improvement works implementing the traffic calming features along Billingshurst Road and Old Guildford Road through the village of Broadbridge Heath. These works will involve:
- New mini roundabout on Billingshurst Road at the junction with Shelley Drive.
- Village Centre improvements, adjacent to the post office

- Sleets Road mini roundabout improvements
In order to protect the public and our workforce and minimise disruption to traffic the works will commence from Tuesday 2nd January 2018 for approximately 15 weeks; subject to favourable weather conditions.
