Welcome to the Horsham Denne Neighbourhood Council website!

Who are we?

Horsham Denne Neighbourhood Council (HDNC) is one of the three Horsham Neighbourhood Councils – representing the views of Horsham residents to the local authorities. We are a non-political community council and consultative body (including on planning applications), that perform several of the functions covered by Parish Councils.

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 HDNC has no money as such to spend on projects.

We are formed from up to 11 Councillors – all of whom are volunteers and must be resident in the Denne area.  If you are interested in being involved in decisions affecting your community and would like to become an HDNC Councillor, please drop us a line on the Contact Us page.

Where did we come from?

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

The Neighbourhood Councils established at that time cover the unparished areas of Horsham. The other two neighbourhood councils are Horsham Trafalgar Neighbourhood Council and Horsham Forest Neighbourhood Council.
Geographically, Horsham Denne Neighbourhood spans from the A264 in the North to where the railway line meets the Worthing Road in the South, from the railway station in the East to the A24 to the west. The North/South border follows the curve of the railway line. HDNC also covers Horsham Town Centre and Horsham Park – making a neighbourhood of over 5,000 households as can be seen below. 

HDNC Supporting The Community

HDNC supports a number of local organisations aimed at improving the quality of life for all Horsham residents including HTCP (Horsham Town Community Partnership), the Friends of Horsham Park, HDOPF (Horsham District Older People’s Forum), Horsham In Bloom and we have taken an active part in the recruitment and ongoing work with Horsham Town Wardens. For links to all of these organisations and more, follow our Useful Links page.
