• Welcome to our ABNC website community

      ABNC (which stands for Arundel Bypass Neighbourhood Committee) is an environmental community pressure group, concerned about the impacts of road-building proposals around the Arundel A27 in West Sussex.  We have been working for 30 years to save the countryside south and south-west of Arundel from major new road damage. 

      The villages of Binsted, Walberton, Fontwell, Tortington; the woods of Binsted Woods and Tortington Common; and also the iconic floodplain south of Arundel, are all under threat from the ecological, landscape, and rural community impacts of Highways England's proposals. 

      Based in Binsted and surrounding villages, and funded by local people's donations, ABNC has a core organizing committee, a wider network of local volunteers across several parishes, and a mailing list of more than 4000 supporters. 

      We work with partners including the South Coast Alliance for Transport and the Environment, the South Downs Network, and ArundelSCATE, whose Arundel Alternative proposal we support.
