The Future West Sussex Plan is our blueprint for what we will deliver over the four year period.
It’s aligned to our three core priorities of:
- giving children the best start in life
- championing the West Sussex Economy
- promoting independence in later life.
The future West Sussex Plan represents a contract between West Sussex County Council and its communities. It contains our vision for West Sussex and the differences we are trying to achieve for our residents and for the county.
It also sets out how we will make those differences and, equally importantly, how you’ll know whether we have been successful in achieving them.
The Future West Sussex Plan details some of the clear challenges facing the Council over the next four years.
Projections for the county by 2019 include:
West Sussex will contain 375,000 households
- The average West Sussex home will cost over £300,000
- Care for the elderly will take up more than half of the council’s budget
- We will recycle 50% of our household waste
- 56,600 residents in West Sussex will be living with at least one long term health condition
- 95% of residents will have access to high speed broadband
- 44,800 babies will be born in West Sussex between 2015 and 2019
- We’ll need 10,990 care beds for West Sussex residents
- It is projected that the county will have 856,300 residents
- West Sussex will require 18,378 more school places
