Highways England’s A27 Bypass Public Consultation process has begun, starting on 22nd August through to 16th October. All Tortington residents should have received information by post regarding the public places where the issues and options under consideration can be seen and where HE staff will be available to answer questions. In addition there will be un-manned displays at other locations as will as places – public buildings, libraries and mobile libraries – where the consultation document and questionnaire can be picked up.
There is not enough space on Tortington TLC to go through all the options, their pros and cons and their consequences for Tortington residents, but as one of the 3 options for the possible route of the Arundel bypass tears the heart out of Tortington’s countryside and severs us from the rest of Arundel parish we cannot stress enough the importance of Tortington residents playing a full role in this consultation.
If you have not received the list of venues for the display of information then follow this link to the HE consultation page – https://highwaysengland.citizenspace.com/he/a27-arundel-bypass/ – where you can also download the consultation document and read about all of the options and complete the questionnaire online if you prefer.
To date, all local discussion on this subject has excluded Tortington residents – denied their very existence in some cases! – and to at last have our say THE VERY LEAST WE CAN DO is complete and send the QUESTIONNAIRE.
