West Sussex Transport Plan – Have your say

Notice From West Sussex County Council


West Sussex County Council has started a review of the West Sussex Transport Plan (WSTP). 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 we aim to continue supporting the economy and communities while protecting the environment.  We will consider the best approaches to tackle key transport issues such as congestion, road safety and pollution, and set out our plans for all modes of transport.


We are 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 also submit their views if they wish to do so. The survey closing date is Thursday 17th December 2020. To complete the survey please visit:


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


If you have any questions, or would like to get in touch with the team, please contact; 01243 642105.
