Release date: 17 November 2020
Residents are being asked to share their views on new plans to make West Sussex a more healthy and sustainable place.
The County Council has put together the ‘Creating Healthy and Sustainable Places: A Framework for West Sussex’ – a new policy for developers, investors, planners, service providers and decision makers which maximises opportunities to create healthy and sustainable places across the county.
Residents and stakeholders are being asked to look at this framework and take part in the consultation.
The consultation begins on Monday 16 November 2020 and will run for eight weeks until Monday 11 January 2021. It is available here: www.westsussex.gov.uk/healthy-places
Amanda Jupp, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Adults and Health, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for us to help shape West Sussex into a sustainable and healthy place for everyone who lives and works here. Everyone has the right to live in a great place. More importantly, everyone has the right to contribute to making the place where they live as great as possible. This framework sets out how we aim to achieve this and I would like to encourage as many people as possible to get involved and share their views.”
District and Borough Councils, Public Health England, NHS Estates, Sport England and other partners including developers have all contributed to the framework so far.
Following public consultation a final draft of the framework will be produced and will then be presented to the Health and Wellbeing Board in January 2021.
