COVID-19 VIRUS

VACCINATIONS ARE OUR WAY OUT OF THE PANDEMIC

It's important that those aged 18-29 are vaccinated. Take-up is lower in this age group than others.

Book a vaccination appointment with your surgery.

HELP AND INFORMATION PAGE

NEW! Adults in West Sussex who have to leave home for work or caring responsibilities can now book a symptom-free Covid-19 test.

This may include those that cannot work from home, or those that need to leave home to volunteer or provide care to others.

If you have already been vaccinated, you should still book a test as it’s possible to still carry and spread the virus.

Testing takes around 10 minutes and advance booking means no waiting and a result within 30 minutes.

THE LOCAL PLAN

It is understood that Regulation 19 of The Local Plan is to be discussed at HDC on 27th July 2021.

Forest Neighbourhood Councillors are pleased to learn that Rookwood is no longer in The Local Plan, but we are keen to be involved in the 2-year consultation as to its future use.

 

Next Council Meeting

IMPORTANT: Members of the public are welcomed at Forest Neighbourhood Council meetings usually held on the third Monday of each month (but usually the second Monday in December) in the Salvation Army Hall, Booth Way.
