Our Vision for Chailey....

"Chailey will continue to be a thriving community which protects and retains its quiet, rural character and enhances its built and natural heritage. Sustainable development that respects its countryside setting will be supported and infrastructure improvements will be encouraged. The most highly valued countryside areas in the Parish will be recognised and conserved. Job opportunities within the village will be actively encouraged to provide improved prospects for local people. The sense of community spirit and cohesion will be fostered and increased."

New Play Area on Rowheath


In pursuance of the ethos of the Neighbourhood Plan, Chailey Parish Council is delighted to announce the installation of new Play area equipment on the recreation ground at Rowheath, Cinder Hill.  We are naming this The Platinum Jubilee Playground.

The equipment is for the enjoyment of the children and youth of Chailey.  To this end, the Parish Council has provided apparatus of the highest quality which meets all required safety standards.  Funds to enable this worthwhile project to be completed were taken from the Community Infrastructure Levy.

Inclusive playground design is increasingly becoming standard practice. Since the Equality Act was passed in 2010, accessibility for all has greatly improved in new playgrounds. Limited mobility or sensory processing issues should not deny a child the joy and benefits a playground can offer. Inclusive playground design enables such a child to participate in the same activities as everyone else and thus enables the whole family to be part of their local community. That is why the Parish Council has included the Team Timber Swing which has the inclusive design mark and is designed for children of all abilities.

Please do not abuse the equipment and do ensure that any rubbish is placed in the bins provided or taken home. Please respect neighbouring properties and park in the designated parking area behind the basket-ball loop.  Please do not park in Cinder Hill.

Chailey Parish Council hope you will enjoy this new facility.
