The current plan, which covers the 2011-26 period, needs to be reviewed to take account of changes to national and local policy, such as the Government’s legally-binding commitment to achieve net zero carbon by 2050.

The new plan will set out how the county council aims to continue supporting the economy and communities while protecting the environment. It will also consider the best approaches to tackle key transport issues such as congestion, road safety and pollution, and set out plans for all modes of transport.

It is asking stakeholders, such as local groups, authorities and transport providers, to complete a survey to gather information about their key issues and priorities. The survey is accessible to all, so individual members of the public can submit their views if they wish to do so.

To complete the survey visit: www.westsussex.gov.uk/WSTPsurvey

The deadline is 17 December, 2020.

The survey results will help shape the draft version of the plan, which will be published for public consultation in summer 2021, with the aim to adopt it in early 2022.
