Closed Consultations

We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We Asked

We asked local dairy farmers if they would be interested in progressing an idea to install a milk vending machine at our Chichester site and if so, what might be required to make this happen.


You Said

Local farmers got in touch, expressing interest in the opportunity and letting us know some of the things we needed to think about. For example, their preference / requirements for

  • a site with level access
  • a site that enabled public access, not just staff access.
  • a full vending machine solution, with contactless payment.

We Did

We are offering to meet all the respondents on site to try and identify a viable location that would work with both our operations and theirs, and to understand if any enabling works, such as new power sockets, might be required.

Once we understand if the idea is practically deliverable, we will assess all the information to decide how best to proceed.

We Asked

We asked  our residents to tell us about their experience of the Coronavirus pandemic in May 2020  to help us understand:

  • the impact the pandemic was having on our residents
  • how our communications were landing and how we could improve these in future
  • which services our residents viewed as important for recovery
  • if there were any gaps in self-reported need for community hub support
  • how residents feel about the County Council's response
  • what (if any) areas needed further insight

You Said

We received a whopping 17,455 responses to our survey.  Thank you  very much to everyone who took the time to participate.

Key findings from this project have been highlighted in the results section  (bleow) and are available in.our Residents' Survey- Coronavirus (COVID-19) Results Summary report

In their responses, our residents told us about the following issues:

  • their main concerns 
  • the impact of the pandemic on finances,  jobs, lifestyles, diet, and mental and physical health.
  • whether or not they were getting the help and support they felt they needed.
  • what activities they engaged in during 'lockdown'
  • their positive experiences, such as spending more time with family, feeling a   greater part of the community, and noticing a positive impact on their local environment.
  • how they used different information channels and what  services they would like more information about  
  • that they wanted to know more about local COVID-19 outbreaks and  access data about the number of cases in their local areas.


We Did

The survey and data analysis has helped to inform a number of actions including:

  • the sharing of details of those in need of help and support with our communities team for follow-up,
  • using the feedback to help improve our communication strategy - see #KEEPWESTSUSSEXSAFE
  • sharing anonymised data with other internal service areas (e.g. Public Health,  Highways, Economy, and the Sustainability Team) to help inform future planning
  • sharing anonymised  location-related data with external organisations such as district and borough councils to help increase their understanding and inform future planning
  • the County Council has now created a  West Sussex COVID-19 Local Outbreak Control Plan webpage which includes a detailed weekly report on the number of confirmed cases in each district and borough council area.
