This is the website for the "West Sussex Joint Minerals Local Plan Proposed Modifications" Representations Period (15 January – 9 March 2018).

[Closing 31 January 2018] The draft West Sussex Rights of Way Management Plan, which covers the period 2018 to 2028, sets out West Sussex County Council’s approach to managing the Public Rights of Way (PRoW) network, as well as signposting how improvements can be achieved over the next ten years.
The County Council manages over 4,000km (2,500 miles) of Public Rights of Way (footpaths, bridleways and byways), which enable residents and visitors alike to enjoy the beauty and variety of the West Sussex countryside. The PRoW network is used for a wide range of leisure activities as well as for accessing services such as shops, schools and work places. If you like to walk, cycle, horse ride or carriage drive in the countryside then it is very likely that you use the Public Rights of Way network in West Sussex.
Public Rights of Way can contribute to peoples’ well-being and can help support the rural economy. People choosing to walk or ride instead of driving helps reduce congestion and pollution. Public Rights of Way also provide green corridors for wildlife.
West Sussex County Council published its first Rights of Way Improvement Plan (RoWIP) in 2007. The Council has a duty, under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000, to review its RoWIP every ten years. This second Plan has been called the West Sussex Rights of Way Management Plan to bring more weight and focus to the management of the existing Public Rights of Way network. The Plan also outlines the process for network improvements.
This Plan sits alongside the West Sussex Walking and Cycling Strategy which sets out the Council’s approach to promoting and enabling walking and cycling.
[Closing 31 January 2018] Please help us to get better
At West Sussex County Council we want to find out whether our customers are satisfied with how easy it is to contact us, and the best way to achieve this is to ask you!
One way we are doing this is to ask you to complete a very short survey and I would be really grateful if you could take a couple of minutes to complete it.
If you have contacted us in the last 12 months I would like to know how easy it was to contact us and then to get the help you needed.
The insight this survey will provide, will help us to improve the service that you receive.

[Closing 29 January 2018] As part of the implementation of the West Sussex Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Strategy 2016-2019 and a review of existing specialist provision it is proposed to amend the agreement for provision at the Special Support Centre at Hazelwick School so it is in line with actual need and take up of places.
It is proposed to reduce the number of places we commission at the Special Support Centre from September 2018 from 8 to 4. This is due to consistently low numbers of pupils requiring a place at the SSC and is line with current demand, as well as ensuring that the County Council makes the best use of available resources.
You can find out more information on the proposal in the document attached below.
