* Environmental Issues cover things like clean-ups, refuse collection problems, noise / odour / fugitive particles (e.g. from Hollingdean Depot) as well as gardens, wildlife, open gardens events, & campaigns such as The Royal Horticultural Society's "It's your neighbourhood" and "Britain in Bloom".

When prompted by planning applications which raise concern among Round Hill residents, several of our committee members address planning issues more formally.

Information about The Round Hill Society
The Round Hill Society keeps residents in the area in touch with local news, events and each other. Every effort is made on this site and in the regular newsletter, the Round Hill Reporter, to present a fair and balanced view while aiming to accept any material from Round Hill residents.

The society was formed in 1999 and holds an annual AGM as well as organising local events such as street parties, open gardens and carol singing.
