Dear Rother District Council,
I would be most grateful if the District Council could confirm:
1) whether the Lych Gate at Holy Trinity Church in the village of Hurst Green, East Sussex is owned and/or maintained by the Council?
2) whether the Council has any records or information relating to this Lych Gate?
Dear Mr Brown
FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 2000
With reference to your request received on 09 October 2018 about the lych gate at Holy Trinity Church Hurst Green, having checked our records, I can advise that the Council do not own or maintain the lych gate. I can only suggest that you contact the Church Diocesan or Hurst Green Parish Council who may be able to assist. There have been 3 planning applications in the past for matters concerning the Church but there does not appear to be any reference to the Lych Gate. The application numbers are RR/96/1200/P, A/65/660 and A/66/961. Details of these planning applications can be found on the Council’s website under online applications.
I am sorry we are unable to assist you further.
If you are dissatisfied with the handling of the request please contact us within 60 calendar days of this response, if you wish to request an internal review. If you are still dissatisfied with the outcome of the internal review you have the right to make a complaint to the Information Commissioner. Their details are:

If it is your intention to re-use the information for commercial gain, you will need to apply to the Council for a license to re-use it, under the Re-Use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2005.
