Below are some pointers for raising some of the most common issues that people contact us about. If none of these are helpful, please see our contact page for more details.
If your issue does not fall within Arundel Town Council’s remit, we may ask you to contact the responsible authority directly, These are usually West Sussex County Council (WSCC), Arun District Council (ADC) or the South Downs National Park Authority if your query is to do with a planning issue in the National Park.
Members of the press and public have the right to ask questions at all Arundel Town Council meetings, and the first fifteen minutes of each meeting is usually set aside for this.
