|Your Parish Council||
Ashington Parish Council (West Sussex) aims to represent the interests of all residents of the parish.
The Council is responsible for a range of services and also works in partnership with other Councils and with organisations in the village. All Council meetings are open to the public and time is allocated for public comment. If you have any points to raise you can either attend one of the Council meetings or contact the Clerk or individual Councillors. If anyone has any questions or needs more information on any topics then please use the 'Contact Us' page and we will forward your questions to the appropriate person.
The Council's new phone number is 07851 009655. Be aware that the Clerk only works 14 hours per week and never on a friday or evenings/weekends so leave a message and she will respond as soon as she can. Use the 'Contact Us' page on this website to email the Clerk.
