Meet your local County Councillor

West Sussex residents will have the opportunity to meet their local County Councillors and ask any questions they have on county council-related business.

The session for Horsham District will be run virtually from 8pm to 8.30pm on Thursday 1st July 2021.

Please email talkwithus@westsussex.gov.uk if you would like to attend your local session and you will be sent the joining details. Anyone who would like to ask a question is requested to email it to the same email address at least two days before the planned session. If you attend the session you can then put your question in person as well as hearing other questions and how they are answered. Having the questions in advance will help ensure questions can be fully answered in the meeting. Anyone who isn’t able to attend the sessions, but would still like to ask a question, can also email and officers will ensure you get a response.

Draft West Sussex Transport Plan

West Sussex County Council are reviewing the West Sussex Transport Plan (WSTP) to update the County Council’s approach to investment in, and management of, the transport network for the period of 2022-2036. Transport affects every aspect of our lives including how we work, socialise, access education and health services.  We must plan for our future transport needs in order to protect and enhance our beautiful and prosperous county.

In Autumn 2020 WSCC asked interested people about their key transport issues and priorities through the WSTP review survey. A summary of the feedback received can be viewed in the report below.

This information is being used to develop the draft West Sussex Transport Plan which will set out how the County Council intends to address challenges including:

  • a growing and ageing population
  • transport emissions
  • rural isolation
  • public health and wellbeing
  • congestion
  • road safety.

The draft West Sussex Transport Plan is now being published for consultation (summer 2021) and adoption of the new plan is expected in early 2022.  The consultation documents can be viewed on this link West Sussex Transport Plan consultation
