March 2019 performance
In the West Sussex County Council’s What Matters To You survey in September 2018, 70% of people who took part said they were happy with West Sussex as a place to live, work and visit. There are a number of things we have done to improve further the levels of satisfaction and build on this good base. They include, continuing to boost the local economy through growth initiatives; investing in highways infrastructure and a network of cycle paths; encouraging residents to increase levels of recycling; promoting West Sussex as a destination of choice through our tourism brand; and showcasing local food producers through Taste West Sussex.
We will continue to promote initiatives that enable residents to feel safe, where children get the best start in life, where older people can live independently for longer and where communities can thrive.

Background

We don’t need to tell you that West Sussex is a great place to live, visit and work. However we need to make sure we make the most of that, that we promote our county far and wide, that we support tourism, businesses and local people and that we are clear, West Sussex is not just open for business, it thrives. This data will be determined from the What Matters to you survey. The next survey will be in 2018 and we anticipate a result in September 2018.
