The Council consults widely with residents, service users and others about existing and planned services and initiatives. It does this in a number of ways - including surveys and focus groups. It sometimes does this jointly with other organisations.

Residents and other related respondents are invited to give their comments on the following documents currently out for consultation.

Your Southwater Country Park

This summer we'll be conducting one of our largest community research programmes - Your Southwater Country Park.

Southwater Country Park is much loved and well used, attracting visitors from across Horsham District and further afield. As a Council, we need to consider how we manage the Park today and in the years to come to ensure its use as a valuable recreation and environmental resource.

We now want to get a better understanding of what people love about the current Park and what they would like to change. We want to understand our residents’ and visitors’ aspirations for its future.
