[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 22 December 2017] The Shoreham Harbour Joint Area Action Plan (JAAP) is being prepared to help deliver regeneration and associated infrastructure proposed at Shoreham Harbour. The Proposed Submission JAAP is now published for consultation between 10 November and 22 December 2017.
The JAAP is being produced jointly by West Sussex County Council, Adur District Council and Brighton & Hove City Council. Shoreham Port Authority is also closely involved in its production.
The JAAP will set out the regeneration strategy for the area over a 15-20 year period. There are proposed development sites in both Adur District and Brighton and Hove. The JAAP will form part of the development plan for both Adur and Brighton & Hove.
Once adopted, planning applications for development in the Harbour area will be assessed against the policies in the JAAP, as well as the National Planning Policy Framework and Local Plans.
Please note this consultation follows on from earlier consultation on the draft version of the Shoreham Harbour JAAP which took place from 16 December 2016 to 10 February 2017.
Further information about the JAAP can be accessed here.

[Closing 10 December 2017] 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 Special Support Centre provision at Maidenbower Junior School to enable provision which is more in line with need and to make best use of available funding.
There is an identified need for additional places for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition. We have considered possible options for meeting this need and believe that altering the designation of the Special Support Centre at Maidenbower Junior School from Additional Learning Needs to Autistic Spectrum Condition will assist in addressing this, by improving the provision available for children with autistic spectrum condition in the north of the county.
You can find out more information on the proposal in the document attached below.
[Closing 5 December 2017] Notice of application made under the Marriages (Approved Premises) Regulations 1995, Marriage Act 1949 and Civil Partnership Act 2004 for the Approval of Premises as a venue for Civil Marriage and Registration of Civil Partnerships.
[Closing 30 November 2017]
Bognor Regis Library has a lovely garden that we would like the local community to have the opportunity to use more widely. We currently have picnic tables, and some giant games which were used for the first time this summer. We have held events in the garden in past years which have proved to be popular. We are working with the Aldingbourne Trust to explore how we can make the most of the garden as a community resource, secure funding for the project, and engage the interest of the local residents.
