Chailey Common Cattle Grazing

Cattle will return to the combined commons Romany Ridge, Pound and Memorial Commons on the 1st/2nd May 2021.

Signs are up on the road and entrances to the common.  If you see any signs damaged or missing please report to Andy Mitchell, Countryside Officer on 07710 031820 or 

Please keep dogs under control so they don’t chase or worry the cattle.   Dog fouling is still an issue – and Neospora is a parasite that causes cattle to abort calves.  Please clean up after dogs and don’t allow them to jump into the cattle troughs – this water is for drinking only.

If there are issues with livestock including cattle escaping onto neighbouring land or roads (not the roads between the commons where there are cattle grids) please contact the farmer Nick Harvey on 07710 031820. 

To report non-urgent problems with gates, fences or cattle grids please contact Andy by email.  Urgent problems eg a gate that will not close or a fence down please contact the farmer by phone in the first instance.

Other issues eg fly tipping, litter, dog nuisance, car parks or bins please contact Lewes District Council here:
