RESIDENTS are being asked to have their say on how the coronavirus pandemic has affected them .

West Sussex County Council is appealing to the public to fill out the survey to help the council move forward in its handling of the crisis.

The survey takes about 15 minutes and can be answered until Sunday, May 31 at

Bob Lanzer, cabinet member for economy and corporate resources, said: “We’ve already had more than 7,800 responses since the survey opened.

“With a population of about 864,000 residents, this equates to almost one in 100 people having their say, but we want more people to take part to give us a really clear picture of how the pandemic has affected you and your families so we can work out the best way forward for West Sussex and where our focus should be.”
