30th November 2016
By Peter Chapman

Campaigners for Woodlands Meed School are still looking for signatures on their petition after West Sussex County Council rejected over 800 of them on a technicality.


Woodlands Meed wanted to trigger a full debate at West Sussex County Council in order to get to the bottom of why the school building project hasn't been completed and to get a commitment of action from the council.

For this to happen, 3,000 signatures are needed on a petition. Woodlands Meed campaigners achieved well in excess of this number, but there's a slight problem.... some pupils who attend the school do not live in West Sussex, nor do their family members who also signed it. West Sussex County Council have chosen to be anal over this issue rather than using some common sense to do the right thing and hold the debate anyway.

What this means is that Woodlands Meed now require another 500 signatures to bring the petition up to 3,000. Can you help?


If you have a West Sussex address, then you can sign the petition here:

Spread the word, Woodlands Meed still need 500 more signatures to reach 3,000 which will trigger a full debate at the county council.


Got an opinion on this story? Leave a comment below.....
What do you think of WSCC deciding to dismiss over 500 signatures over a technicality? Should they do the decent thing and debate the issue regardless?
