Rural Verge Trial – A request for feedback – Brightling, East Sussex – village website

Brightling Parish has taken part again this year in the Rural Verge Trial. Information about the trial can be found here.

Safety & Visibility

Throughout the trial, safety issues have remained a priority, with any visibility or access issues being picked up and rectified through the usual process. If you see a problem, you can report it as usual through the East Sussex Highways website.

Now you can give your feedback

The point of a trial is to allow a greater understanding of the impact this change could have if rolled out more widely, so your feedback is very important and all comments are welcomed, whether in favour of the change or not.

You can report back on the following:

  • What you are seeing in the verges
  • If you would like this to become a permanent change
  • If there is something that could be done better

The online feedback form is open throughout the trial. The responses from this form will be reviewed once the trial has finished.

Feedback will be reviewed along with any operational issues encountered, costs and an overview of the flora and fauna observed in the verges during the trial. The findings will be presented to a Lead Member for Transport and Environment meeting at the end of the year, with consideration of a policy change going forward. If you have any questions, please contact the clerk by email on
