The West Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) is a statutory partnership providing shared strategic leadership and coordination of local action to deliver health, care and wellbeing services based on the best evidence of local needs. The West Sussex HWB includes representation from key organisations in West Sussex with major responsibilities for social care services, public health, health and wellbeing services.  The HWB’s responsibilities include developing a Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy (JHWS) which identifies priorities and sets out how local needs will be met.


The current 2015-2018 West Sussex Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy  has been reviewed. The new strategy will be used to inform local commissioning and delivery plans and determine what actions West Sussex County Council, NHS, and other partners need to take to meet health and social care needs, and to address health inequalities.

The Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Policy and Strategy communicates West Sussex County Council’s approach to highways infrastructure asset management, setting out the decision making framework for the maintenance of the roads in West Sussex.  Corporate processes are also in place for the identification, assessment, and prioritisation of local and community highway and transport improvements.  The rolling Forward Programmes for Highway Maintenance, Local Transport Improvement Programme (LTIP), and Community Highway Schemes (CHS) identify and prioritise future maintenance and improvement needs across the County Council’s highway asset groups. These forward programmes inform the future Annual Delivery Programmes.


The Highway Maintenance, LTIP and CHSForward Programmes provide robust and reliable information to identify the future maintenance need, or transport infrastructure improvements to be carried out within the next three to five years. The programmes are used to support forward financial planning and communicate the anticipated planned maintenance and transport improvements to elected members, County Local Committees, local West Sussex businesses and residents.


The Annual Delivery Programmeis developed and prepared from the integration of the Forward Programmes each year during autumn for approval in advance of the start of the new financial year. It prioritises maintenance and improvement schemes taking into account available funding for delivery and the relative need.
