Temporary change to bin collections due to hot weather

Statement from Mid Sussex District Council


From Thursday 2 August the Mid Sussex recycling and rubbish collections will start from 6am.
The hot temperatures we’re experiencing this summer mean working conditions are tough for our bin collection crews and this change will give them more time to work in the cooler part of the day.
Please ensure your bins and boxes are placed out ready for collection the evening before, in plenty of time for the early start.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Lindfield Parish Council is holding a four week public consultation (1st June - 29th June 2018) on a proposal to reinstate and manage public toilets on Lindfield Common. Feedback can submitted on our website (via Survey Monkey) or by completing a feedback form. Electronic copies of the forms will be available to download from our website. Hardcopies will be available at the Parish Office. Forms can be submitted up to Friday 29th June 2018.

The Parish Council will host a display stand about the proposals at Lindfield Village Day (2nd June 2018). Members of the public will be able to complete hardcopies of the feedback forms at the stand.


Since 2005 Lindfield Common has not had any public toilets after these were removed by the District Council. The closest public toilets to The Common are located in Denmans Lane and are managed by the Parish Council. The Parish Council now seeks public feedback on whether to reinstate toilets on the Common. The proposed location to install public toilets will be to the north of the Lindfield Bowls Club car park.

Subject to the feedback received, it is proposed that the Parish Council will:

  • Submit a planning application for the toilets to Mid Sussex District Council;
  • Apply for permission to carry out works on common land;
  • Apply to Mid Sussex District Council for a capital grant.


During the consultation period a copy of the site plans, and Frequently Asked Questions will be available on the Parish Council’s website.

Hard copies of the site plan will also available to view at the Parish Council Office during the public consultation (Public opening hours Tues 1pm-4pm, Thu & Fri 10am-1pm).
