Public Consultations

Consultation on Hothamton regeneration plans


Consultation event on the 13th October, at the Alexandra Theatre, Regis Centre, Bognor Regis.  where proposals for the new park at the Hothamton Car Park site will be exhibited

The proposal, which forms part of Arun District Council’s wider regeneration aspirations for Bognor Regis, is to create an exciting new park, similar to a tree lined continental market square. A location for all seasons where people will be drawn to relax, exercise, reflect, play, shop, browse, eat or be entertained – something to suit all ages and every mood.

The existing car parking will be replaced with flexible parking spaces within soft landscaping as the site is transformed, creating better linkages with the town centre and seafront.

Council officers and the consultancy team will be on hand at the exhibition to answer questions and discuss the thinking behind the plans which can also be found on the links below…/come-and-have-your-say-on-new-ho…/



A27 Arundel Bypass Consultation. ends 16th October 2017


Public Consultation on Post-16 Transport Charges


West Sussex County Council is consulting on proposals to increase the transport charges made to Post-16 students.

The majority of West Sussex students will not see any changes to their travel arrangements.

The proposed increase will affect 325 students where the County Council arranges their transport for example by coach, rail, minibus or taxi. These students currently pay £427 per year towards the cost of their transport.

The proposal is to raise this to £600 per year to bring the cost in line with the cost of contract coach places and the price of an equivalent journey on public transport. It also brings the cost in line with the amount students in most other counties pay.

Students with special educational needs and disabilities who do not pay transport charges because of low family income will not be affected by the proposed changes.

We would appreciate your help in promoting the consultation wherever appropriate. Further information and the online questionnaire is available at:

Any additional comments or suggestions can be emailed to

The closing date for comments is Thursday, 19 October 2017.




Highways England will be hosting a number of A27 Arundel bypass public consultation events - see here for further details. 

West Sussex  County Council is proposing to make changes to the way we deliver adult social care. As part of this process a survey has been issued to gain people’s views on the proposals in advance of the Leader’s decision on the operating model which will be taken later this year.  


The survey is intended for people who use our services, their families and carers, voluntary and community organisations and all local people who have an interest in adult social care. The survey can be accessed at the following link:

WSCC Supporting Lives, Connecting People Survey 

The survey is running until Friday 11 August and should take only around 5-10 minutes to complete. A press release has been issued and can be found at the following link:

Press Release - Help us shape how we deliver Adult Social Care

WSCC, ADC and University of Chichester are working with Hemingway Design to develop a ‘place brand’ for Bognor Regis. To help shape the approach, we welcome your views and ask you to complete the short online survey that will inform the place brand. Please pass it on too – friends, relatives, colleagues, businesses, resident and community groups will all want to join in.

Have your say – your thoughts and perceptions of Bognor Regis will inform the Bognor Regis ‘place brand’

Bognor Regis is entering a phase of real opportunity with significant investment into an Engineering and Digital Technology Park at the University of Chichester, a WSCC funded creative digital hub at Bognor Regis train station, and enhancements to the seafront and town centre.

To support and reinforce this investment, a comprehensive marketing campaign is being developed by internationally-renowned design agency Hemingway Design, who have been commissioned to create this campaign and to help turn around the fortunes of the town and give it a new identity.

Working in partnership with Arun District Council and the University of Chichester, our aim is to change negative perceptions of the resort and relaunch it as one of the UK’s leading destinations.

To kick off the project, the views of those who live, work and visit Bognor Regis are being sought to help shape the future of the town.

All views are welcome so, to have your say, or to find out more about the campaign, please go here and let us know your thoughts.

NHS Coastal West Sussex Clinical

Commissioning Group survey 


The NHS has improved significantly over the years with more advanced and high-cost treatments becoming available which support patients to live longer and dramatically improve their quality of life. This is good news, but also increases demand for health services. It means that some tough decisions about health priorities must be taken.


NHS Coastal West Sussex Clinical Commissioning Group want to ensure that people have a chance to give their views on the challenges they face and the changes they're looking at making.

Help them reach as many people as possible and encourage them to complete the OurNHS survey. Available online: or request paper copies by emailing:
