Please keep dogs on leads

DogsWhen you are out exercising in public areas please ensure your dog is kept under close control.

Use a lead in areas being used by other people as this helps ensure the required two metre distance to others. Our pets don’t understand social distancing and are naturally inquisitive, wanting to interact both with people and other dogs. Please be mindful of this and keep your distance to help everyone stay safe.

The Dogs Trust has produced a useful guide to ensuring your canine companion stays healthy during lockdown and there are some top tips on how you can keep your dog happy and active at home if you need to self-isolate due to coronavirus.

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) reopened Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRS) across West Sussex on Monday 11th May.

Although the waste sites are open, WSCC is asking you to consider if your journey is absolutely essential before making the trip. 

From Monday 1st June, the range of items will be extended to include garden waste, general household waste, wood, cardboard, electrical items, bulky items, and furniture. The HWRS are currently unable to accept soil / hardcore, plasterboard, asbestos, tyres or textiles for the time being. ID will be required from all vehicles attending site

Vans and pickups will be permitted on the sites, but will need to display their WSCC permit to access the site. Trailers will continue to be rejected for the time being due to the operational changes made to sites.

Normal summer opening hours will be in operation. Once at the sites there will be certain measures in place for the safety of visitors and staff.
