Residents' issues considered by County Local Committees
There are eleven County Local Committees (CLCs) across West Sussex, each made up of all the county councillors for the CLC area. They meet three times per year and aim to bring local residents and local members together to help shape the services provided by the Council.
We aim to have 60% of agenda items raised by the local community by 2022.
December 2019 performance
We have had a busy CLC round, at which there have been some great pre events around community issues. This quarter there was a focus on highways issues, and all CLCs made decisions on traffic regulation orders which took up time in the meeting. This round was also concurrent with the CLC review which is now complete.
There were 46 agenda items in total, with 19 being raised by residents.
Our 2019-20 milestone target is 50%
The last 2 years we were above target, and our CLC meetings play an active role in providing our residents a platform to talk with the Council about their concerns and ambitions for their local area. The main themes were proposed reductions in front line services funding, a proposed cycling event, school placement and performance, grant funding for community activity and local Highways concerns.
Plans are now in place for the next round which will give opportunity to expand the amount of resident’s issues being considered.
