We have published the draft West Sussex Transport Plan (WSTP) 2022-2036 for consultation from 16 July to 8 October.
We are reviewing the WSTP to update the County Council’s approach to investment in, and management of, the transport network.
To address climate change we urgently need to reduce transport emissions, but transport is part of almost every aspect of our lives, including how we work, socialise, access education and health services. We must plan for our future transport needs in order to protect and enhance our beautiful and prosperous county.
We are consulting on the draft version of the plan to get feedback on its content and the strategies that it sets out. To complete the survey, please visit our consultation page.
We have also published a snapshot of the draft plan and some background documents.

We have hosted two webinars on Microsoft Teams during the consultation to introduce the draft plan where officers were available to respond to questions. These took place on Thursday 22 July and Wednesday 8 September 2021.
If you were unable to attend, you can watch a pre-recorded webinar presentation online.
Hard reference copies of the draft plan, sustainability appraisal and associated scoping report, habitats regulation assessment and evidence base document are available to view at libraries across West Sussex.
In autumn 2020 we asked interested people about their key transport issues and priorities through the WSTP review survey. A summary of the feedback received can be viewed in the report below.
This information has been used to develop the draft West Sussex Transport Plan which sets out how the County Council intends to address challenges including:
- transport emissions and climate change
- a growing and ageing population
- rural isolation
- public health and wellbeing
- road safety.
Subject to the outcomes of consultation, adoption of the new plan is expected in early 2022.
