What Matters to You?

If you live in West Sussex or own a business in the County, please take part in West Sussex County Council's survey and tell them what matters to you!

Your answers will help shape West Sussex County Council's future priorities and inform how the budget is set for 2019/20.

The survey takes eight to ten minutes to complete and the link can be accessed on this page. It asks for your views on the West Sussex Plan, as well as your opinion on Council Tax levels. By taking part you can enter a free prize draw to win a £500 donation for a West Sussex-based registered charity of your choice.

There is also a survey specifically for children and young people to have their say - the link is available on this page.

If you need a paper copy you can get one from your local library by calling 01243 777100 or by emailing

The closing date for responses for both surveys is 16 July 2018.
