Welcome to the Sidlesham Parish Council Website…

Sidlesham is a large parish of 6.5 square miles lying to the south of Chichester on the eastern side of the Manhood Peninsula in West Sussex.

The parish measures five miles north / south and three miles east / west. The southern border touches the coast west of Selsey; the eastern boundary is in Pagham Harbour. Sidlesham Common marks the northern extreme and Ferry Pool the south. The whole parish is notable for the wide, very flat, low-lying land. It has a significant coastal fringe, with extensive farmland.

There are some excellent views to Chichester Cathedral and the South Downs to the north, and to the Solent and the Isle of Wight to the southwest. It has a high level of sunshine, and relatively low rainfall.
