Suggested reorganisation[edit]

I've been playing around trying to tidy up certain categories of late, and I'm still not sure that we have the best model here. Looking at most other counties, very few seem to divide categories up by district. Most go for 'Towns and Villages in..." which seems to make more sense for the 'outsider'. After all, who looking for media about Midhurst would know that it's in the Chichester district. In fact, the only cases where the district is obvious are really Crawley & Worthing - which are in fact officially boroughs rather than districts! I therefore propose that we disband the current district categories, and replace them with town categories in the Towns & Villages sections for Bognor Regis, Burgess Hill, Chichester, Crawley, East Grinstead, Haywards Heath, Horsham, Shoreham and Worthing, either be recategorising existing categories, or making new ones and transferring other items to new categories. I realise that this is quite a big chance to what is presumably a long-standing structure, but seems to be to be both pragmatic for users, and in keeping with the structure used in most other county categories, including all of those in South East England.
