Slaugham Parish consists of four villages, Slaugham, Handcross, Pease Pottage and
After the last set of boundary changes by the Boundary Commission, the Parish was
split into two wards. Handcross & Pease Pottage in the Balcombe ward and Slaugham
and Warninglid into the Bolney ward. This means that the Parish now has the
distinction of having two District Councillors. The Parish lies alongside the A23 London
to Brighton Road and is one of the larger parishes within the Mid Sussex District
Council area. Each of the four villages have their own distinct character. (see our
section on "The Parish").
The Parish Council is the third tier of local government. The Parish is represented by
thirteen councillors, ten for the Handcross and Pease Pottage ward and three for the
Slaugham and Warninglid Ward. The Parish covers large areas of Outstanding Natural
Beauty (AONBs) and has many interesting places to visit within the Parish and nearby.
