Horsham Denne Neighbourhood Council was established in 1974 when Horsham Urban Council amalgamated with Chanctonbury and Horsham Rural Councils to form Horsham District Council.  

We are one of three Neighbourhood Councils established to cover the unparished areas of Horsham. Horsham Denne NC area includes the main shopping areas of Horsham Town Centre, Horsham Park and nearby residential streets. The other Horsham Neighbourhood Councils are Horsham Trafalgar Neighbourhood Council and Horsham Forest Neighbourhood Council.

Horsham Denne Neighbourhood Council is a local, democratically elected non-political local community council and consultative body (including on planning applications), whose elected councillors represent the views of the residents of Horsham Denne Neighbourhood.

We are funded by a small annual grant from Horsham District Council from the Town Special Charge, part of your Council tax which covers our administration expenses only, and therefore Horsham Denne NC has no money as such to spend on projects.

We are formed from up to 11 Councillors elected through the same local election process as Parish Councils, Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council.
If yo
u are interested or would like to become a Horsham Denne NC councillor please contact our Clerk.

District and County Councillors frequently attend our meetings to communicate our views up to their respective councils and to report back on any current relevant issues.


Sara Doy was appointed our Clerk as of Monday 14th September 2015.
