Community Wardens

Horsham District Council has just recruited four new wardens for the district. Dominic Woodhead and Jacquie Cave are the new warden team for Southwater Parish.

Based within the community the Neighbourhood Wardens work alongside partner agencies to improve the quality of life for everyone by undertaking a number of activities from enforcement to community development, working with the elderly, vulnerable and young people. They are managed by Horsham District Council, working closely with the Parish and Neighbourhood Councils to set priorities. The Schemes are funded by the Parish Councils and Neighbourhood Councils Special Charge.

Neighbourhood Wardens have certain enforcement powers and carry out high visibility patrols in their respective areas to deter crime and anti-social behaviour. Horsham District Council is accredited by Sussex Police and Neighbourhood Wardens can utilise certain police powers aimed at low-level anti-social behaviour. They can also exercise powers available to them as employees of the District Council in relation to environmental offences.

Contact details for each warden scheme can be found at www.horsham.gov.uk/communitysafety/community-safety/neighbourhood-wardens
