Neighbourhood Panels

The Sovereign Harbour Neighbourhood Panel consists of twelve local residents. In addition, panel meetings may be attended by Borough & County Councillors, and representatives from EBC Neighbourhood First, Haven School, Sovereign Marinas, The Waterfront Traders and others as required. Neighbourhood Police Officers attend as necessary.

Neighbourhood Panels are mostly about identifying the root causes of problems, and trying to find resolutions whatever the law and order issue. They were initially set up by the police, but now deal with a range of local issues. Each panel sets it own priorities and meeting schedules, and recruits members according to local situations.

Minutes of Neighborhood Panel Meetings. These meetings between resident representatives, local councillors, Premier Marinas, Waterfront traders, the EBC Neighbourhood First team and others, discuss various local issues. Click here...

Give your view regularly to Sussex Police - People’s Voice is an ePanel of Sussex residents who have signed up and agreed to complete up to four online surveys from Sussex Police each year. The police are collecting this anonymous information to enable them to find out if they are providing the right services to the right people, depending on their needs. Given the current general discontent with government policy towards police funding and the reductions in police numbers, this is a good opportunity to give some feedback to the police; sign up now to be involved.
