CPRE Sussex

CPRE Sussex has raised concerns about a proposed tyre recycling centre in Warnham. Dr Roger Smith, representing CPRE Sussex, submitted a formal response which highlighted omissions in the application in relation to compliance with the West Sussex Waste Local Plan, and Horsham DC’s planning policies, air quality, vehicle movements and disturbance, noise, lighting, impact on wildlife and protected species and the landscape impacts. The application is due to be  decided by West Sussex County Council in December.

Inspiring, ingenious and innovative projects have been celebrated at the Sussex Countryside Awards 2017. Organised by the Sussex branch of the Campaign to Protect Rural England, the awards were held at Petworth House on Wednesday, October 11.
They saw countryside heroes from across the county celebrated with everything from chocolatiers and brewers to farmers and developers winning on the night.

Update on the Arun Local Plan 2017

CPRE Sussex attended and spoke at the Examination in Public (EiP) of the new Arun Local Plan in September 2017. We expressed concerns about the lack of consultation, the level of housing proposed and the impact this would have on the local environment and the lack of a coherent strategy for ensuring that infrastructure is put in place at the right time to accommodate this development.

CPRE Sussex has today (28th September) lodged a holding objection to proposals for New Monks Farm at Lancing. Our main concerns relate to the impact on the local road network (particularly the A27,) the impact on the National Park (including access for walkers, equestrians and cyclists) and inadequate measures to prevent flooding. Please feel free to use elements of our response in the letter below to email Adur Council if you would also like to object.

A27 Update

CPRE Sussex has submitted its response to the consultation on road improvements for the Worthing/Lancing stretch of the A27 (11th September.)  We highlighted the fact that the CPRE 'The End of the Road' Report 2017 reveals that road-building is failing to provide the congestion relief and economic boost promised, while devastating the environment. It directly challenges government claims that ‘the economic gains from road investment are beyond doubt’; that road-building will lead to ‘mile a minute’ journeys; and that the impact on the environment will be limited ‘as far as possible’. The report shows how road building over the past two decades has repeatedly failed to live up to similar aims. We therefore believe that any investment in the existing road needs to be part of a wider package of investment to reduce the use of motorised vehicles on our roads including smart planning for growth and investment in infrastructure for walking, cycling and use of public transport.

House Sparrows in your community

In the Spring 2017, CPRE Sussex joined with the Brighton and Hove Wildlife Forum (BHWF) to find out more about populations of house sparrows in Sussex. The excellent detailed work being done by BHWF was supplemented by a CPRE survey across Sussex more widely, to seek some broad information about how house sparrows were doing across Sussex at a time when their numbers nationally have reduced significantly.

Arundel bypass options are outdated thinking

CPRE Sussex believes that the Arundel Bypass consultation is a missed opportunity to do something really innovative and forward-thinking to reduce congestion and improve air quality.
