Riparian Ownership and Responsibilities

Looking After Our Streams and Helping to Mitigate Flooding

Hassocks Parish Council leads a Flood Action Group which is aimed at looking at ways to reduce the risk of flooding in Hassocks.  As part of this, the Parish Council has recently printed a booklet about Riparian Ownership to inform residents whose properties border a watercourse about their riparian responsibilities.

There are at least 450 properties in Hassocks whose owners or tenants may be Riparian Owners with responsibilities, each of these properties should have recieved a copy of the booklet.    If you would like to know more about Riparian Ownership or you think you maybe a Riparian Owner but did not recieve a booklet, please click here to contact the Parish Office or on the link below for an electronic copy of the booklet.
