Lavant Parish Council

Welcome to Lavant Parish Council Website

Lavant is a medium size rural parish with an electorate of approximately 1600 in 750 households and at present a precept of £21,500.  The parish is just north of Chichester on either side of the A286 Midhurst Road.

Further details of the component parts of this village and its facilities can be found in the Village Design Statement.  The Community is a vibrant one served well by its pubs, restaurants, schools, churches and above all its Village Hall. The closeness of Goodwood adds to the activities in the parish.


Lavant is to be found in a very attractive part of West Sussex and yet it is within easy reach of major urban centres on the coast from Brighton to Southampton.  The close proximity of Chichester means access to transport both train and bus with direct links to Gatwick Airport and London, Brighton and Portsmouth and also links across country to the West Country, the Midlands and the North.

Nearby parishioners can of course use the varied commercial, leisure and entertainment facilities of Chichester without too much difficulty.  The coast is also very close at Bosham and the Chichester Harbour area, the Witterings, Selsey and Bognor Regis.
