Our five year plan for dementia care and support, the Dementia Framework West Sussex, was launched back in 2014.  We are now keen to hear from you about the progress that has been made.  We also want to know what more needs to be done to ensure people affected by dementia in West Sussex can live well.   If you would like to give us your views, please do so using our on-line surveys.  The surveys will run from the 21st May to the 30th June (deadline now extended to 22nd July).  To access the surveys, please visit West Sussex County Council’s ‘Have Your Say’ portal.

There are two surveys; one designed for all West Sussex residents including people living with dementia and their family and friend carers.  This survey can be accessed by following this link:

The other survey is for all those organisations and groups providing care and support.  This survey can be accessed by following this link:

Please feel free to complete the surveys that are relevant to you.

If you would like to take part but are unable to get on-line, please contact us using the details below to find out alternative ways of letting us have your views.

High Weald AONB Management Plan 2019-2024

The AONB Management Plan is the single most important document for the area; it sets out a vision for the kind of place the High Weald should be in years to come and, crucially, some of the actions we can all take to help achieve that vision.

There is a statutory duty to review the Plan every five years, and a new Draft Plan has been prepared by the High Weald AONB Partnership, working on behalf of the area’s 15 local authorities.

Now we want to know what you think of the Plan.

Between 13 June and 25 July 2018 we will be collecting your feedback on the Draft High Weald AONB Management Plan 2019-2024 and its supporting statutory assessments.

To download a copy of the Draft Plan and a Consultation Response Form, or to find the nearest location where you can view a printed copy, please visit

If you don’t have time to complete the full consultation, you can let us know whether you agree with the summary of the area’s special character by filling in a quick survey on our website.
