West Sussex Infrastructure Studies

In 2015, West Sussex Chief Executives from WSCC and the seven other district and borough councils, agreed that a high level study into infrastructure requirements across West Sussex and East Surrey should be carried out to assess what the future needs of county will be both with, and without, a second runway at Gatwick Airport.

 

The Study has progressed and two reports have been produced by AECOM:

  • West Sussex Infrastructure Study 2030 – covering the whole of West Sussex and based on planned housing growth as identified in Local Plans through to 2030
  • Draft Gatwick Diamond Post 2030 Infrastructure Study – covering the whole of West Sussex and four Surrey Districts and based on an assumed extension of planned housing growth to 2050 and the addition of two housing growth scenarios (9,300 and 14,000 additional homes) associated with the potential development of a second runway at Gatwick Airport.

 

The study considers a wide range of infrastructure including transport, education, health and social care, community services, green infrastructure, utilities, waste, flood defences and emergency services. WSCC services have supported the consultants to develop the reports.

 

The second report was undertaken jointly with Surrey County Council and the four East Surrey districts and boroughs that are part of the Gatwick Diamond and AECOM has also produced a separate Surrey Infrastructure Study based on planned housing growth as identified in Local Plans through to 2030.
