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 we 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
- 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
