Petworth flats renamed after outcry

FOLLOWING an outcry in Petworth over the name ‘Heyshott Court’, chosen for the new development in Station Road, town councillors wrote to Chichester District Council and won a rethink.

Many people in the town felt the name had no relevance to Petworth and was likely to cause confusion to visitors who might find themselves seven miles away in the village of Heyshott.

It is now to be named Morgan Court, after noted wood engraver Gwenda Morgan who lived in one of the houses demolished to make room for the apartments.
