Proposed Access Improvement Works at Tilgate Park

Improvements to the access and parking at Tilgate Park are proposed and can be seen in detail in the ‘Find out more’ information booklet. Proposals have been approved by councillors but the project still requires detailed design and planning permission.  We would like to know what you think of these proposals and if there is anything we can do to minimise the impact of the construction works.  Please take a look at the ‘Find out more’ document and let us know your thoughts by filling out this questionnaire.
