Frack Free Zone petition debate at WSCC

Frack Free Zone petition debate at WSCC


The next full meeting of West Sussex County Council (WSCC) takes place at County Hall North in Horsham on Friday (October 17th). The agenda includes a debate on a public petition calling on the County Council to declare West Sussex a ‘Frack Free Zone’.

On-going repair work to the council chamber ceiling in Chichester is the reason for the new venue. The meeting will take place in the Park Suite and will begin at 10.30 am.

Other items for debate include:

  • Proposals for the County Council to restore the committee system;
  • To consider the implications for the county of the recent Rotherham child exploitation scandal;
  • The implications of housing development west of Ifield; and
  • A challenge to the decision on making changes to West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service.

Public seating is limited and therefore, to manage numbers, tickets are available in advance for people wishing to attend the meeting – especially for the petition debate.

A small number of tickets will also be available on the day of the meeting.

To apply for a ticket please email:

The meeting will be webcast live as usual and can be viewed on the day here.
