West Sussex Environment Strategy

The West Sussex Environment Strategy was developed in 2008. It provided a framework for achieving a clean, healthy, and biologically diverse environment for the county, which is managed holistically and innovatively in the face of a wide range of pressures, including the challenges presented by a changing climate.

We have continued to develop this work over recent years, and as part of this progress, the strategy will be revised during 2013/14 to reflect the current priorities and future direction required to achieve a better environment in West Sussex.
