About this blog


Hello, let me introduce myself I’m Louise Goldsmith and I’m Leader of West Sussex County Council.

West Sussex is a fantastic county. It has hundreds of square miles of countryside, miles of beautiful coastline, many vibrant towns and a city, over 800,000 residents, and there is so much going on.

I started writing my blog to show some of the things that happen in an average week as Leader of the Council, and also to showcase some of the many really good things which the County Council is involved in or which makes a difference in the county.

It’s also a chance for me to explain the thinking behind some of the difficult decisions we’ve had to take as a County Council in these tough financial times.

I would really welcome your views – if you have any comments please leave them here. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter, and follow West Sussex County Council on Twitter.
