We need your support to see off threats to Binsted and Arundel's countryside & seek better solutions.
Please help us to #SaveBinsted from Option 5A:

Let them know your opposition to Option 5A through Binsted:
What do other organisations say?
Walberton Parish Council strongly objects to the Binsted Option 5A. Our Arun District Councillor Norman Dingemans and our MP Nick Herbert have long favoured Option 3, as do WSCC and Arun District Council.
CPRE Sussex, the South Downs Society, Sussex Wildlife Trust, ArundelSCATE and other environmental bodies, all oppose Option 5A. (They also oppose Option 3, but are in support of the Option 1 alignment, as the least damaging.)
We need your help to make clear that the Binsted Option is wholly unacceptable.

This Consultation is part of a process which Highways England have set out as follows (although the timings have slipped):
In December 2014 the government announced funding in principle for a new dual carriageway Arundel bypass, subject to consultation; and the Department for Transport published its plans for the A27 (pp21-22 of this document).
In March 2015, Highways England published the South Coast Central Route Strategy.
At the same time the Department for Transport (DfT) published Parsons Brinckerhoff's A27 Feasibility Study: Reports 1 & 2 give the Technical Investigations, and Report 3 gives the Investment Cases. The Options Assessment, in Report 2, can be downloaded directly here.
More information about the Options, including maps, is given on the links below.
If you would like support us, then send us an email with your contact details.
We will keep you in touch with Arundel A27 affairs by e-newsletter.
