Solar schools gear up for a bumper summer
Sunday, 09 June 2019 10:54

Solar panels on West Sussex schools are now generating as much green electricity as one of the county’s solar farms.

The Conservative County Council is completing the final installations on 80 schools to generate zero-carbon electricity and help them to reduce their energy bills and impact on the environment.

Once complete, the 5 megawatt combined generation capacity will be roughly the same as the council’s 25 acre solar farm at Tangmere, which opened in 2015.

The roof-mounted systems, which range in size from 15 to 250 kilowatts, have been installed at no cost to the schools and the ongoing operation and maintenance costs are met by the council.

The schools simply purchase the green electricity from the council at a reduced rate compared to the electricity they would usually buy from the National Grid.

This will lower school energy bills by £2,000 per year on average and save the County Council’s overall school energy budget £158,000 in the first year. These savings will increase over time as the cost of grid electricity rises.

Deborah Urquhart (Conservative), WSCC Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “Our Solar Power for Schools Programme has really made it easy for schools to enjoy the benefits of renewable energy and lower bills without having to worry about the cost or logistics.

“These systems will pay back the cost of installation within a few years and deliver an ongoing financial benefit while providing teachers with a real life case study to bring science and technology to life in the classroom.”

The system installed at Lancastrian Infants School in Chichester will provide the school with 100% of its electricity demand on sunny days and supply surplus renewable electricity for sale to the grid.

Head Teacher Zoe Gordon said: “Our solar panels were fitted in January of this year. We were delighted to be chosen to be part of this scheme as it fits with our eco ethos as well as giving us the opportunity to save money in these pressing financial times for schools.

“The team that fitted the panels worked efficiently and respectfully within our school environment and the project ran smoothly. We are looking forward to lots of sunny weather and seeing the results of the panels!”

Step forward for exciting new Worthing Community Hub
Sunday, 09 June 2019 10:50

Exciting plans for Worthing Community Hub have taken a step forward today.

Funding has been agreed to create a vibrant public space for residents to access a range of services in the town.

£3 million will be used to redesign Worthing Library into a hub where children and family services, registration services and library services will be based.

The council’s community hubs project aims to future proof services while creating dynamic engaging spaces for the local community.
Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council, said: “I’m delighted that this incredibly exciting and ambitious project has got the go ahead.

“This is very good news for Worthing and its residents. It will create a public space to bring a range of services under one roof, giving easier access in one place. Everyone loves their local library. Reconfiguring to a Community Hub will offer so much more to many users, young and old alike, so I am really looking forward to seeing the new hub take shape.”

Hundreds of Worthing residents had their say in the early concept design for the hub last summer. The next step is to appoint a contractor and draw up final designs.

The plan is for the new community hub to be ready to open in the summer of 2020.  In order to complete the work, the Library in Richmond Road will close for approximately six months. During the work, there will be alternative library service provision which will be announced shortly.

 
Take action now to reduce the impact of climate change
Saturday, 08 June 2019 11:37

A major online campaign to encourage us all to play a part in reducing the impact of climate change is being launched by the County Council.

On World Environment Day (5 June 2019), the West Sussex Climate Pledge asks everyone in the county to commit to make small changes in key areas:

• Make low carbon journeys – reducing carbon emissions and improving air quality.
• Save water and energy – conserving the resources around us and opting for renewable energy sources where possible.
• Pass on plastic – avoiding single-use plastics and recycle wherever possible.
• Shop local – buying local produce, from local stores, to support the economy and cut down on the distance goods are transported.
• Fight against food waste – avoiding the time and energy it takes to produce food that is then wasted and the cost and environmental impact of its disposal.

Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “All around us our planet is changing, and we simply must act now to make changes to the way we live if we want our habitat to survive for generations to come.

“There is a growing urgency to take action and all over the county we already have some amazing groups of people doing their bit. But many people may not know where to start or whether their actions will even make a difference. We hope by providing some simple first steps and sharing ideas it will encourage people to think about the effect they are having on the environment and how they can make changes for the better.”

People are being asked to pledge their support online and commit to making a series of simple changes to their everyday lives.

People will also be asked to sign up to a regular e-newsletter which will contain tips and advice around the five key areas and how they can fulfil their pledge.

Louise Goldsmith, Leader of the County Council, said: “We all need to act carefully and responsibly to ensure there are enough resources for today and tomorrow. Without a doubt it is imperative for us all to take action now and I can’t stress enough the importance of this and the unthinkable consequences of doing nothing.

“With the world’s population now around 7.7 billion people, all reliant on our one planet earth, we can all make a difference by acting together and doing everything possible to reduce the damage we are causing to our planet.

“As a County Council we are working hard to try to become carbon neutral and we’ve already significantly cut our carbon emissions by making our buildings more energy efficient. We’ve reduced our reliance on fossil fuels by investing in capturing renewable solar energy on schools, offices, fire stations and other buildings as well as at our solar farms.

“But there is more to do. Over the next four years we are planning a further £35m investment in low carbon energy projects alone and through this campaign we hope to encourage a movement in West Sussex towards more sustainable living.

“It may be hard for some but we all have to change the way we live by taking action. The consequences of not taking action are really scary and that is why I am making a plea for everyone to take action now.

“Please help us to achieve this by making your West Sussex Climate Pledge online and encouraging friends and family to join in and do the same. There are over 850,000 people living in West Sussex. If we all work together now we can collectively make a huge difference.”

Deborah added: “For many people the pledge will contain things they are already doing, and if that’s the case then we thank you. What we would ask is that you help us to spread the word to others to stress the importance of everyone acting together.

“After making your online pledge, I would encourage you to sign-up for our newsletter to receive regular updates, or join our online forum group on Facebook where you can ask questions and share your own ideas. You can also follow us on our new pledge Twitter account.

“Everyone has a part to play and we need your help if we are to make a difference. If we all work together to make small changes then together we can have an enormous impact.”

People can find out more and make their pledge by visiting www.westsussex.gov.uk/maketheclimatepledge, searching for the Facebook group ‘WS Climate Pledge’, searching for #WSClimatePledge or following @WSClimatePledge on Twitter.

Leader Louise Goldsmith blogs on Climate Change
Wednesday, 29 May 2019 12:19

It is often said that some of the best meetings are those impromptu ones, spur of the moment, maybe a chat round the coffee machine which can be informative and helpful, no agenda but just sharing ideas and thoughts.

That was very much the case last Friday when I met a group of youngsters who had come to County Hall to raise awareness about Climate Change.

 

As I arrived at County Hall I saw the group sitting in the sunshine outside the building, peacefully protesting and voicing their concerns.

 

This provided a real opportunity for me to spend some time listening to their very genuine concerns about their future if action is not taken, and also gave them a chance to ask me some great questions – which I was very happy to answer.

 

I was asked to write to the Education Minister to ask that Climate Change is put on the national curriculum. It was interesting to hear the comment from one of the protestors that they thought that the way the subject is covered at the moment doesn’t convey the seriousness of the issue. So I will be writing this week as promised.

 

I listened to the concerns about the chemicals used in Fracking and the impacts in West Sussex and was able to reassure the group that there is no fracking in West Sussex.

 

We talked about cycle lanes in Chichester and how to make public transport more accessible. We also all agreed that plastic food wrapping and the use of plastic shopping bags are completely unnecessary.

 

We mentioned the Refill scheme as one way to help reduce using plastic bottles and whether WSCC could help make available more recycling bins in towns and buildings.

 

There was a concern about councillors not listening to the voice of the youngsters on this issue so we agreed to meet again in a couple of months’ time so we can continue to share thoughts, ideas and concerns.

 

One question I was asked was ‘what worries me’ and of course Climate Change really concerns me. As we sat outside enjoying the warm sunshine it was an ironic reminder of the impact Climate Change is having on our weather patterns. Although many of us like the warmer weather, in the long term the effects of global warming and the lack of rain will have devastating consequences.

 

In the South East we live in a very water stressed area so it is a very important issue and something that has concerned me for many years now. On a personal level we need water to live our lives - to drink, shower, clean our teeth, and wash our clothes - but on another level without water our food crops fail, the grass becomes dried, and animals do not have enough to eat or drink. In cases of severe drought water is extracted from our rivers but that in turn has a big impact on our environment and wildlife. Everything suffers and that really worries me.

 

So one of the big things all of us can do is to make a real effort to reduce our water usage, such as cutting down on the time it takes to shower, making sure we don’t leave taps running when cleaning our teeth and washing our hands and dishes – all simple actions that can make a real difference.

 

When we raise the issue of climate change we must all accept there is a need for every one of us to take urgent action and we will be talking about this more next month when we will be launching a new campaign and asking you to take the ‘West Sussex Climate Pledge’.

 

As part of the campaign we will be suggesting what you can do to help and also asking you for your top tips as well.


If we all make changes now we should make that difference – the difference that those youngsters want to secure their future.

Crackdown on single-use plastics launched by Deborah Urquhart
Wednesday, 29 May 2019 12:14

A plan to eliminate single-use plastics and avoid unnecessary plastic waste has been launched by West Sussex County Council.

The council will carry out a full audit of all the plastic it uses across its buildings and set targets for reduction as part of a Plastics Action Plan published today (Tuesday 28 May).

The council has made a commitment to find alternatives to plastic wherever possible and to use recycled plastic when it isn’t. The council will also ensure that where possible, plastic items they do use can be reused or recycled.

Deborah Urquhart, Conservative, and Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “The environmental impact of single-use plastics is undeniable and thanks to programmes such as Blue Planet we have seen a growing movement to reduce our reliance on plastics and seek alternatives.

“We are recycling more than ever – with 7,000 tonnes of plastic sent to be recycled in West Sussex last year. However, many single-use plastic items can’t be recycled or are simply thrown away.

“We want to lead by example and ensure we are working towards eliminating single-use and unnecessary plastics wherever possible for our staff, residents, and businesses.”

The publication of the Plastics Action Plan comes as the County Council is about to launch a major new campaign to encourage people to pledge their support to reduce the impact of climate change. The West Sussex Climate Pledge will launch on World Environment Day on 5 June.
Part of the West Sussex Climate Pledge campaign will involve encouraging people to #PassOnPlastic.

The County Council is already supporting the national Refill campaign to encourage people to use a reusable bottle and fill up with tap water. There are four publically accessible Refill points in County Council buildings.

The County Council has also taken steps to improve recycling for staff, and has replaced plastic cutlery and takeaway containers in its main canteen with items made from wood, metal, paper or card.urquhart213

 
WSCC Open New Cycle Route
Tuesday, 14 May 2019 13:17

A new, 3km cycle route has been completed, linking Pagham Nature Reserve with Medmerry Nature Reserve, boosting facilities for residents, visitors and wildlife enthusiasts alike.

The county council’s Public Rights of Way team worked with The Manhood Peninsula Partnership on ideas to bolster tourism in the area - and found that cycling provision was under represented. From this, a £400,000 scheme was devised. It includes:

• 1.2Km of shared pedestrian/cycling pathway

• re-construction/improvement on cycle route 88

• 1.7Km of improvements to the path between the new route and flood defences at Selsey.

The new cycle route is across the road from the RSPB’s Pagham Harbour Local Nature Reserve (PO20 7NE).

The council’s Project Manager, Thomas Collins, said: “The project has been receiving positive feedback from Sustrans as well as from visitors to the RSPB nature reserve.

“A key aim for the project was to reinforce the ‘sense of place’ in the area, enabling the Manhood Peninsula to become even better known as somewhere with wonderful scenery and impressive wildlife that is readily accessible to visitors.”

Deborah Urquhart, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “The route’s opening is great news for cyclists, pedestrians and bird watchers alike.

“This sustainable transport scheme opens up access to the Medmerry Nature Reserve and provides further links in to the Manhood Peninsula for cyclists and pedestrians.”

The contractor for the scheme was Balfour Beatty Living Places. Lloyd Allen, Principal Operations Manager for Balfour Beatty, West Sussex, said: “We are delighted to successfully hand over the new cycle route in West Sussex to the council.

"The scheme will significantly benefit the local community and visitors alike, improving access to the Medmerry nature reserve while providing a sustainable transport scheme for residents, visitors and wildlife enthusiasts.”

Welcoming the new facility, Steve Webster, Site Manager at the RSPB’s Pagham Harbour and Medmerry Reserves, said: “The RSPB is thrilled with the construction of the new cycle link between the Pagham Harbour and Medmerry nature reserves.

“Working in collaboration with West Sussex County Council and other partners, this route provides opportunities for local residents, holiday-makers and visitors to the reserves to get around more easily – taking in the views, getting exercise and of course, seeing the wildlife.”

Carolyn Cobbold, project leader for the Manhood Peninsula Partnership, said: “Linking Pagham to Medmerry with a new cycle path is a great addition to the growing network of cycle routes in Chichester district.

“The peninsula, in particular, is a wonderful place for recreational cycling and the Manhood Peninsula Partnership has been working hard to encourage more cycle paths as part of the coastal area's valuable tourism product.

“More and more people are discovering that our area is a fabulous destination for a holiday, whatever the time of year, and being able to spend a few days walking or cycling in open countryside rather than having to get in a car is a growing attraction for visitors.”

Cycling facts:

• West Sussex Highways has provided a total of 5.8km of cycle path in the 2018-2019 financial year (exceeding the 5.75km target). This does not include the Medmerry scheme, which finished after 31 March.

• The Pagham Harbour to Medmerry cycle link has opened in plenty of time before National Bike Week, which starts 8 June.

Broadbridge Heath Highway IMprovements Begin
Tuesday, 14 May 2019 13:09

Work has started on major highway improvements in Broadbridge Heath.

The benefits of the project will include:

• reducing through-traffic in Broadbridge Heath village

• improving connections between old and new parts of the village

• providing new facilities for pedestrians and cyclists

The C622 is now closed to allow work to start. The closure includes a section of Billingshurst Road between Shelley Drive and Newbridge Roundabout to control vehicle access and allow construction to proceed safely and efficiently.

The scheme will manage traffic on the main routes (A264, A281 and A24), which currently uses the old bypass, through downgrading and closures on the C622 and redirecting traffic to a new A264 link.

Access for buses and emergency vehicles will be maintained throughout the works. Shops and businesses in Broadbridge Heath will be able to open as usual throughout.

A West Sussex Highways spokesperson said: “The project started last Tuesday (7 May) with the introduction of traffic management and road closures. This took some motorists by surprise and caused frustration but we took immediate action to increase signage and will continue to monitor the situation.

“We are just six days into the project and we would ask people to bear with us while even more road users are made aware of the new traffic arrangements.

“Improvement projects like this can cause inconvenience during construction, for which we apologise, but there will be many long-term benefits for the village and residents.”

About six months after completion, a full evaluation of the scheme will be carried out and any adjustments identified will be considered.

The first phase of the scheme will include:

• completing vegetation clearance in key areas

• installing reptile fencing to protect reptiles in the area while the works are happening

• excavation and drainage works on the Newbridge and Farthings Hill roundabouts

Boost for Bio-Diversity as WSCC Publish Pollinator Strategy
Tuesday, 14 May 2019 13:02

The importance of pollinating insects such as butterflies, bumblebees and beetles is being spelled out bt Conservatives in West Sussex

A new ‘Pollinator Action Plan’ has been published by the County Council which sets out how these vital species will be protected.

“Pollinators are an integral part of our existence. Without them our food supply, wildlife and countryside would cease to exist,” said Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, and Member for Angmering and Findon.

“There are over 4,000 species in the UK and impending habitat loss, pesticides and climate change are threatening their very existence.”

The council’s Pollinator Action Plan aims to help sustain pollinator species across the county, and is built around five central aims:

  1. To ensure the needs of pollinators are represented in local plans, policy and guidance where relevant.
  2. To protect, increase and enhance the amount of pollinator habitat in West Sussex, prevent any extinction and improve the status of any locally threatened species.
  3. To increase awareness of pollinators and their habitat needs amongst local residents, businesses and other landowners.
  4. To increase the contribution to pollinator conservation of land under the ownership of, or managed by the County Council.
  1. To improve knowledge and understanding of pollinators in the region.

Deborah added: “We were already looking at pollinators through our work to improve air quality and our ‘Better Breathing’ strategy, but this additional level of focus will now build on this and help us to ensure that the beauty and prosperity of our local environment continues for generations to come.”

The County Council has been running a ‘Notable Road Verge’ scheme since the 1970s and for over four decades has identified and managed over 50 miles of species-rich road verge to maintain their value for pollinators. 

The County Council also manages several countryside sites such as Fairmile Bottom and Halnaker Windmill where wildlife and biodiversity thrive, for the public to enjoy.

The meadow at Buchan Country Park is cut specifically to promote wildflower diversity to provide opportunities for a wide range of pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths and hoverflies. Glade management within woodland is undertaken to promote opportunities for woodland flowers and their pollinators.

Shared use paths such as Downs Link, Worth Way, and Forest Way are also managed to promote biodiversity, providing wildlife corridors within the landscape including shelter and food opportunities for pollinators.    

The County Council has a partnership with the Sussex Wildlife Trust to manage local wildlife sites - some of our most valuable wildlife areas which play an essential role as both a source from which pollinators can spread and also important stepping stones in the ecological landscape.

Henri Brocklebank, Director of Conservation at Sussex Wildlife Trust, said: “We very much welcome the publication of West Sussex County Council’s pollination action plan. The plight of insects globally and in the UK is now well known with the 2016 State of Nature report telling us that 59% of British insects are in decline.  The report puts the UK as one of the worst places in the world for the state of its wildlife. This is shocking and we all need to do what we can to reverse these trends and West Sussex County Council should be applauded in developing their plan.”

West Sussex County Council will now work closely with contractors and partners to deliver the plan and will encourage schools, residents and businesses to get involved along the way.

Laurie Jackson, Farm Pollinator and Wildlife Advisor, Buglife, said: "It is great to see West Sussex County Council taking a lead in making a commitment on pollinator conservation in the county. This action plan sets the foundation for improving the prospects of our county's diverse pollinator community and identifies many opportunities for coordinated measures to be implemented."

Visit www.westsussex.gov.uk/bees to learn more and find out about the small changes you can take too.

Pollinators under threat:

Our pollinators are in trouble:

- Half of our 27 bumblebee species are in decline

- Three of these bumblebee species have already gone extinct

- Two-thirds of our moths are in long term decline.

- Across Europe 38% of bee and hoverfly species are in decline

- 71% of our butterflies are in decline.

The most significant factors leading to these declines in pollinator numbers include:

  1. Habitat loss – The most significant cause of decline is the loss and degradation of habitats which provide food, shelter and nesting sites for pollinators. The loss of wildflower-rich grasslands is one of

the most important issues. Over 3 million hectares of these habitats have been lost in England alone

since the 1930s, the loss being attributed to more intensive farming and urban/industrial

development.

  1. Pesticides – There is growing evidence that the use of pesticides is having harmful effects on pollinators including honeybees, wild bees and butterflies. Wider effects throughout ecosystems are

also of concern and pesticides have been implicated in other declines such as farmland birds and soil organisms. The use of 26 neonicotinoids is of particular concern. These are systemic pesticides which can be applied as a seed dressing (the preferred delivery mechanism) or spray and have a high toxicity to insects.

  1. Climate Change – long term changes can deprive pollinators of food supplies at times when they need them, increase their exposure to parasites and diseases, or change habitats so that they are no longer suitable. There may be gains as well as losses but a resilient network of good pollinator habitat across the area is needed for them to be able to adapt and take advantage of changes.

What pollinators need

Pollinators need many of the things we need – food, shelter and nesting areas.

Food – Pollinators need food (nectar and pollen) throughout the season from March through until September. Many plants and trees can provide these food resources, including many so called ‘weeds’ such as dandelions and thistles.

In addition to flowers, many pollinators need other food resources to support their different life stages – for example butterfly and moth caterpillars need particular plants to feed on.

Shelter and nesting - Dense vegetation such as tussocky grassland, scrub, mature trees, and piles of wood and stone can provide essential habitat for hibernating pollinators. Many species overwinter as adults including queen bumblebees, and some butterflies and hoverflies, others as eggs, larvae or

pupae. Old burrows and dense vegetation are used by bumblebees, with sunny slopes and dry ground used by ground-nesting bees such as mining bees.

West Sussex County Council approves 2019/20 budget
Friday, 01 March 2019 09:50

West Sussex County Council has approved a balanced budget for 2019/20.

The meeting of the full council debated the proposed budget before approving a net expenditure of £575.5 million to deliver key services for all the communities of West Sussex.

As part of the 2019/20 budget the council also agreed significant investments to support the delivery of the five key priority areas of the West Sussex Plan.

These include:
• £6.1 million - additional new investment in Children and Young People’s services
• £7.3 million - investment in Adults and Health.
• Additional investment - Special Support Centres to help to keep students with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in mainstream schools with their peers and in their local area.
• £3 million - additional investment in extra care schemes to help keep older people living independently for longer.
• £44.5 million - investment in a sustainable energy programme which includes the installation of solar farms and battery storage on unused council land.
• £5 million - programme to create community hubs and protect key services by bringing them together under one roof.
• £13.8 million - investment in corporate and fire fleet vehicles and £1.8 million in specialist fire equipment to support our Fire and Rescue Service.
• £22.5 million - investment in digital infrastructure supporting businesses and rural communities.

Since 2010, the Council has saved more than £200m and in the same period, government funding has been cut by £145m. The County Council faced a challenging financial gap of £45.4m for 2019/20 alone, due to increasing demand on social care services and a continued reduction in central government funding. As a result, it identified £23.4m of savings across a number of services. The remaining amount has been found through a council tax increase of 4.99% which includes a dedicated 2% to fund adult social care. This increase means an additional £1.27 per week for the average Band D household.

Louise Goldsmith, Leader of West Sussex County Council said:

“Despite the difficult financial challenges we face as a county council this budget includes significant investment in a number of priority areas for the communities we are here to serve. We're making a clear commitment to continue exploring new and innovative ways to generate income and do more with the money we have.”

Jeremy Hunt, Cabinet Member for Finance and Resources, said:

“This budget is balanced, robust and sustainable which supports the five key priorities in our West Sussex Plan. It is a budget that supports our residents and ensures that we continue to provide our many excellent services.”

£180k funding boost for West Sussex One Public Estate
Friday, 01 March 2019 09:47

Government funding of £180,000 has given an additional boost to the One Public Estate West Sussex programme, designed to transform local communities and provide better public service.

It’s on top of £640,000 already received from Government since 2017. Led by West Sussex County Council, One Public Estate (OPE) West Sussex brings together 23 public sector organisations to work together to look at how their collective assets can be used more efficiently and effectively. The ultimate aim is to improve services for residents and ensure the best value for money for taxpayers.

Partners involved include district and borough councils, organisations from across the health sector, police, ambulance and fire and rescue services.

The latest round of funding awarded will go towards feasibility/development appraisal works in the following areas:

• Burgess Hill: The Brow (joint project with Mid Sussex District Council, West Sussex County Council and others)
• Shoreham: Pond Road (led by West Sussex County Council)
• Chichester: Southern Gateway (led by Chichester District Council)
• Chichester: Northgate (led by West Sussex County Council)

Leader of the County Council Louise Goldsmith said: “I’m delighted that the OPE West Sussex programme has yet again been successful in securing revenue funding from Government to support the development of collaborative projects. This continues to demonstrate the success of the partnership and the countywide commitment across the public sector to delivering the wider benefits OPE can bring for residents, communities and services.”

The OPE programme is a joint initiative between the Cabinet Office and the Local Government Association.

The aim is to improve public services while rationalising the public estate so there is a reduction in the amount of money spent on buildings by the public sector. The programme will also help free up land for the development of housing, commercial and employment space to help support local economic growth.
