Southwater Country Park improvements survey

Under the banner ‘Your Southwater Country Park’, a new consultation to help shape priorities for facilities at Southwater Country Park near Horsham launched on 25th July, lasting for eight weeks until 30th September.

The Park, which is owned and managed by Horsham District Council, is an attraction for all ages and abilities and the Council want to hear from as many park users as possible about what they like about the Park currently, and what, if any, improvements they would like to see in the future.

External consultants will conduct the thorough online survey, completing face to face interviews at the park and engaging with children and teens with activities to get their views on what they think they would like to see in the park going forward.

They will look to gain insight from visitors, not just local and District visitors, but people from farther afield too, on what they would like to see at the Park.

Topics included in Southwater Country Park survey

  • Whether existing facilities could be improved
  • What new facilities might be of interest
  • Whether the balance between recreation and nature at the Park is right.

Commenting on the survey, Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture Cllr Roger Noel said: “I am really pleased that we are in a position to launch this survey regarding our much loved and well used Country Park at Southwater. We are keen to assess overall satisfaction levels with the Park and highlight any areas for improvement and future development.

“Receiving your views will determine where future investment could take place, reflecting the views and lifestyle choices of local residents, current and potential park users. We welcome your input and invite as many of you as possible to complete the online survey.”
