      Highways England has chosen to take forward Arundel Bypass Option 5A, their Preferred Route, to the next stage of consultation.

      This is the most damaging of the three Options to the natural and rural environment and to the special qualities of the South Downs National Park.

      Please sign our Petition to help stop Highways England taking Sussex down this destructive road.

      Signing is also opting in to be kept informed about our campaign to save Arun's beautiful countryside.  Your contact details will not be shared with any other organizations or used for any other purposes.  Should you wish to not receive occasional emails at important stages in this battle; an 'unsubscribe' link is provided at the foot of every email.

      We petition the Secretary of State for Transport, the South Downs National Park Authority, Highways England, Nick Herbert MP, West Sussex County Council, Arun District Council, Arundel Town Council and Walberton Parish Council, to:

      1. REJECT Option 5A for the Arundel bypass through Binsted and Tortington villages and countryside and the Arun valley watermeadows.
      2. RECOMMEND that other options, less damaging to countryside and villages, should be considered.

      Reasons: The historic village of Binsted is set in wooded countryside in the parish of Walberton, West Sussex. Partly within the National Park, it is a haven for wildlife, with an active community and rural businesses. Many visitors value Binsted for quiet recreation. Option 5A would sever Binsted’s community, and destroy its beauty and tranquillity. It would also damage the historic village and landscape of Tortington near Arundel.

      To find out more about the rural communities affected:

      The last public consultation on the Arundel bypass was in 2017. The total number of voters then was nearly 10,000, but less than 1400 (14.5%) voted in favour of 5A.. Today, more voices - including your voice - need to be heard, and heard more loudly, to Save Our Sussex. Please share with your friends and encourage them to join you in signing.
