THE FUTURE of neighbourhood wardens is still in doubt after West Sussex County Council withdrew funding for the scheme last year.

Chichester District Council has agreed it can only commit to 50 per cent of funding for each existing warden, for a maximum of three years, and only if this sum is matched by external funding in each area.

The wardens are based and operate in Chichester East and South, Selsey North and South, Tangmere and Oving, and East and West Wittering.
