Worth Parish Council covers the two villages of Copthorne and Crawley Down with the surrounding areas within the Parish boundary.

The Parish also employs three grounds men who look after the Councils properties around the two villages.
The Parish Council recently moved into new purpose built offices, including a council chamber, which can be rented out to outside organisations. The bulk of the letting work is carried out by a marketing manager employed by the Parish Church. The Parish Church are the owners of the building and regularly use the ground floor for various functions.
The Clerk is expected to advise the Council on, and assist in the formation of, overall policies to be followed in respect of the Authority\'s activities and in particular to produce all the information required for making effective decisions and to implement constructively all decisions.
The Clerk will ensure that statutory and other provisions governing or affecting the running of the Council are observed and will be accountable for large expenditures from an agreed budget, which includes contributing to the setting and monitoring of the relevant budget, and ensuring the effective spend of budgeted sums.

The Council generally meets every fortnight on a Monday evening, with other sub committee meetings at other times.
The two villages are preparing separate Neighbourhood Plans. The Crawley Down Plan is a ‘made’ Plan and the Copthorne one will shortly be going out to initial consultation
