        **Cycling Infrastructure and Promotion It is just plain
        daft to think that College Lane could make a

        the remodelling plans contain a number of elements
        which look set to make the station environment less
        "human" and particularly less pedestrian and cyclist
        friendly. In particular, car access from the Avenue de
        Chartres will cut across what is at present a rather
        useful and (almost) car-free cycle/pedestrian path to
        Waitrose, and between the station and the city
        centre. (This route is much less noisy and hectic than
        going along South Street, whereas South Street is a
        key junction where cars desperate to swing into/out
        of the station precincts present greater danger to
        pedestrians). ** Rights of Way Improvement Plan

        The implementation plan needs to make reference to
        the need to protect and enhance the dedicated

        process for many years and following the most

        There must be urgent improvement to the A259
        between Titnore Lane Goring and Station Road
        Angmering.The reinstatement of a dual carriageway
        would go in some way to alievate this( and with
        suitable speed-enforcement measures would
        maintain or even increase the safety of this major
        arterial road) I have noticed a large increase in "rat

PART 2 IMPLEMENTATION PLAN: CHICHESTER
The Chichester Society supports the Short Term
(2011-2016) initiatives for Chichester but has the
following comments and additional proposals:
CYCLING INFRASTRUCTURE & PROMOTION The
cycle facility along College Lane should be
accompanied by trafic calming measures to relegate
the lane to a local access road. The new bus service
for Graylingwell Park should be routed via
Wellington Road/ Broyle Road and not along College
Lane. ENFORCEMENT & SPEED MANAGEMENT
Electronic vehicle Activated Signs should be erected
on Broyle Road and on sections of the Ring Road
where vehicles often exceed the speed limits. Mobile
speed cameras should be used where necessary. A
20mph speed limit on local residential roads shoud
be considered. PARKING MANAGEMENT
Variable Message Signs indicating available spaces
in car parks should be carefully sited to minimise
environmental impact particularly within the
conservation area. We strongly support the provision
of Park & Ride car parks close to the A27. PUBLIC
TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE &
INFORMATION Real Time Electronic Information

and not on adjacent poles (as in Brighton & Hove) to     at Arundel and Worthing.
I am very concerned at the plans to develop the
present Keymer Tile site off Nye Road. It is going to
have a huge impact on the local roads such as Cants
Lane, Junction Road and The Vineries which are
already congested and narrow places, even if new
access points are added to Kingsway. Simply putting
in parking restrictions on these roads will unfairly
penalise those people who do not have space on
their properties for off street parking. In addition,
there is the problem of the busy Junction Road level
crossing. It should also be noted that there are only
two east-west routes on the east side of Burgess Hill
which are already congested, particularly the one
through Worlds End. Any accidents or roadworks on
either of these routes causes massive delays even at
off peak times. Surely, it would be more sensible, if
these developments are really necessary, to
encourage development on the west side of the town
where there is relatively easy access via the A2300
(which could be converted to a dual carriageway)         See my comments above but also I would like to see

        the Ring Road and major radial roads. This to include
        reducing, rationalisation and removal of signge,
        redundant or unnecsssary guard railings and street
        furniture, in order to enhance the visual environment,
        increase safety for all road users, and encourage
        modal shift from the car to walking and cycling by
        making these modes of transport more inviting. 2)
        Electronic traffic calming measures such as signs
        activated by speeding vehicles, hand-held speed
        cameras etc: An interesting suggstion made recently
        in a national paper was to use peer pressure
        whereby a speeding vehicle would automatically turn
        the next traffic signal to red, stopping all traffic for a
        while, ( the longer the greater the excessive speed!)

        The map for East Grinstead is notable as the only
        one that does not show any proposed improvements
        in cycle routes. This is regrettable as recent road
        schemes have made the A22 more hazardous for
        cyclists by reducing carriageway widths. Bus
        priority at traffic lights is not seen as a big issue for
        East Grinstead but a commitment to extend real time
        information systems to bus stops in villages such as
        Ashurst Wood would be welcomed. There is a need
        for much better coordination between planned
        bus/train times and, ideally, a system for real time
        information exchange so that, for example, buses do
        not depart if a late running train is about to arrive.

             Concerning proposed cycleways, it is often
             prefferable to cycle on the road rather than using
             segregated cycle lanes due to: 1) the segregated
             layout puts the cyclist in more danger e.g. the cycle
             lane/footpath intersect road T junctions. A cyclist
             using the road at these points would only need to
             slow down if a driver pulled out in fornt of them. 2)
             Drivers seem to give cyclists more room when a
             cycle lane as part of the road isn't present! It maybe
             better putting overtake markings in the centre of the
             road. 3) Roads such as the Haywards
             Heath/Burgess Hill road is a bit thin in places.
             Cyclists experience drivers hanging off their back
             wheels waiting to overtake after the next bend. It
             may seem to fly in the face of current policy but road
             speed limits should not be decreased. Assuming the
             road system is like plumbing all taps shold be turned
             on to let traffic flow. Wide pipes are needed where
             more traffic goes and these pipes shouldn't suddenly
             change when travelling across the county council
             border.

             short journeys. We need to make the roads safer so

             with cyclists safely, rather than cycle lanes removed
             from the road. Also with regards to walking in the
             area, the subway at Shoreham station is to be closed
             by the introduction of ticket barriers at the station,
             which is a disgrace. An easy method of crossing

             Overall - None of these are "Implementation
             Plans"!!!!! To be so requires some degree of
             programming, financial details, and clear description
             of what is being suggested. How can people
             realistically be asked to comment on "Review of on-
             street parking charges" (P62)? Where?, how much?,
             to what benefit? - absolute nonsense! Basically lots
             of very bland meaningless statements, which don't
             always relate to the first section of the plan and
             appear not to depend on which theme we are going

        The plan doesn't consider any less costly
        improvments to the A27 south of Chichester with the
        EXCEPTION of Stockbridge roundabout. ALL other
        junctions have sufficient space around them to
        facilitate larger lead ins & lead out of A27 traffic. I   I strongly believe the answer to Chichester congestion in

        The Rights of Way Improvement Plan seems too
        ambitious in the current economic situation. Where
        cycle lanes are provided, then cycles need to be
        prohibited from the adjacent road. These cost a lot of
        money and the benefits are lost if cyclists do not use
        them. The Bognor to Chichester one is used, but
        there are still many cyclists who impede traffic flow
        and increase the danger to themselves and others by
        cycling on the road. The Northgate, Chichester one
        way system is another example of cyclist misuse.
        The Chichester Station Interchange plans appear
        likely to reduce public transport use, rather than
        improve it. These need to be reviewed.

             Why no school travel plan for those schools where
             children live in the town centre/near the seafront and
             have to go north to school? They often have the
             longest walk to school, over roads like Mill
             Road/Richmond Road/Cowper Road where there are
             insufficient crossing places, yet these aren't
             mentioned in your plan. Cycle routes - good to see
             these being implemented, but the promenade is now
             a danger zone. I use it as a pedestrian, runner AND
             cyclist, and think there should be a separate cycle
             path - and cyclists need something to stop them
             cycling on the promenade between the Sea Lane
             Cafe and George V Ave. Far too dangerous for
             everyone as it is currently. School travel plans are
             a waste of time and money when people still park on
             yellow zig zags outside schools, and no-one does
             anything about it.                                     Please refer to my comments above.

            Chichester is in danger of becoming over developed,
            it is a small city contained within "walls" and as such
            is a tourist centre; this tourism is important for local
            business. Too many more houses is going to clog up

            within the walls and car parls only on the periphery.

         Historically, 'cycle infrastructure' in West Sussex has
         been translated as 'sub-standard' pavement cycle
         conversions'. Forget it: just make the roads more
         pleasant to use (for all, not just the motorised
         minority) in urban areas (= 20mph speed limits) and
         focus on long distance off-road routes (e.g.
         Downslink, below, and the coastal path, NCN2,
         which is far too narrow at present). Shoreham plan
         mentions the Downslink. This bridleway is a key
         sustainable travel route from the south coast main
         line railway into the National Park. Use your vision:
         this should be hard surfaced (tarmac) up to Steyning,

         Tinkering with small scale schemes such as
         encouraging walking and cycling do not deliver what
         is needed. These should be happening anyway, what

        If the Officers of the Council can't even get their

        credibility of the rest of the plan - see page 2 -

        checked this? Fiddling with minor things, all of it. I
        know there isn't much money, and you have to
        extend the expenditure over a number of years to
        keep council employees in their jobs, but a decent
        investment in improving the traffic flow through
        Worthing on the A27 would benefit all residents.

As previously stated, none of the actions specify
exactly what will be done, by when, what success will
look like and how it will be measured. For instance
having a school travel plan doesn't change anything
unless it is promoted, annual surveys are taken and
progress is reported. The A27 is normally raised
as one of the biggest issues. The poor safety record
should be addressed by the use of average speed
cameras. Where they have been used they typically

Improve connectivity between villages and towns -
cycle routes, footpaths. We support the work being
proposed for the Downs Link. More of this type of
facility should be available. Resurface bridleways so
that cyclists can use them ie stop the horses
churning up the surfaces. Upgrade footpaths to
bridleways so more people can use them.

              come from implementing the north-south relief road.
              Reason - when the developers said that they could
              'deliver' an efficient traffic system on the existing A29
              from Bognor northwards, they failed to predict
              (because they were unknown) the new Tesco lights
              and the new (if it goes ahead) Sainsburys. These
              two things let alone anything else, makes the A29
              in/out of Bognor unattractive and either then
              congests, or traffic goes elsewhere in the area to
              avoid the delays and hassle. In other words - a
              developer funded north south route would avoid
              congestion and create a free flowing new entrance to
              Bognor. However, because developers cannot be
              compelled to cooperate, I realise it won't happen.

              many cyclists choose to use the road I believe this is
              because on the cycle path I am expected to Give
              Way to crossing traffic 13 times between the A27 and
              North Bersted Toucan crossing, whereas on the road
              I would only have to give way at one roundabout. At
              most of the points where I have to Give Way there
              are no road makings or signs warning motorists of
              cyclists. The Persimmon Homes development on
              site 6 has added a further Give Way. Chichester -
              spend money on more frequent bus services then

d development in this area, is a total waste of time.
        Regeneration and effective new development is
        highly dependent on good connectivity - key to which
        is the Arundel bypass in particular and at Worthing.
        With the regeneration of Littlehampton,it is essential
        to have an open mind as to the best way of routing
        the traffic - to draw people into the Town.

        Chichester plans - there is mention of a community
        car club in the plan but I was involved with a
        consultation concerning this from a WSCC officer
        and despite much support and many arguments in
        favour of developing such a scheme from people
        involved with Transition Chichester, Chichester
        Green Party and ChiCycle, I heard that the initial
        application had been rejected at a council meeting.
        Speed limits and traffic calming measures - although
        calming is mentioned in the plan very few details are
        given of where this might occur. We need reduction
        to 20 mph on several residential roads in the city,
        especially where primary schools exist, such as
        Orchard Street for example, where I live. Given that
        funding for these plans is likely to be cut severely,
        they need to be reconsidered in the light of less
        funding, and value for money needs to be a key
        concern. Improving cycling facilities will not cost very
        much but will save money in the long term since if
        cycling takes the place of car use, then car traffic,
        congestion and pollution should all improve and
        lessen the need for more expensive measures to do
        with traffic control.                                    see above.

                                                             I have some concern for safety on transport. On school

        Chichester It is a personal view that people will in
        the majority still try and get into Chichester to park
        before they use a park and ride scheme, likewise
        people will still drive to work over using car shares or
        public transport and I'm not convinced the measures
        proposed will help reduce traffic in Chichester at
        peak times. It's a ghost town in the evenings but
        during the day especially at peak times it is grid
        locked. There are umpteen exits from Chichester
        outwards, but they are all jammed at 5pm. The train
        gates being down for lengthy times don't help.
        Bognor Encouraging people to use public transport
        or walk/cycle will only be possible once it is a safe
        place to do so. You can't walk around at night in
        certain places it's just not safe enough/worth the risk. A27 improvements can't come soon enough.
        3.41Indeed the Thameslink programme (expected to
        be completed by 2015) I would question this
        statement, given that no rolling stock has been
        ordered. 3.54Passenger Transport Concessionary
        Fares If the national concessionary scheme for older
        and disabled people is terminated, then this is likely
        to result in modal shift back towards the car.
        Travelwise - Informing people of their travel options
        How many people realise that a weekly bus ticket
        (“Megarider”) for journies such as Midhurst to
        Chichester is far cheaper than the cost in car parking
        and petrol? 4.16The goal here should be that the
        cost of car parking in major towns should exceed the
        cost of the average bus fare. (As above – currently a
        Megarider is £19.50 per week, so a cost of say £5
        per day or greater should be the minimum). If this
        results in a surplus, this can be ploughed back into
        supporting sustainable transport. 4.28. o"bjective,
        stakeholders ranked „Improvements to the West
        Sussex Coast and A27‟ highest overall. Placing
        restrictions on the number of vehicles entering towns
        was ranked last, except by representatives of the bus
        and rail operators who conversely ranked this as the
        second highest priority." Towns such as Chichester
        are being choked by the number of cars entering the
        City. This statement really needs a sanity check!      A far more coherent, and well signed cycle network

        Worthing still does not have a safe route for cyclists
        to travel to and from the north. A cycle track along
        the east side of the A24 between Findon village and
        the Washington Bostal (to connect with the old A24
        road) is desperately needed. This would encourage
        both leisure (the South Downs Way is very popular
        with cyclists) and utility cycling to and from Worthing
        to north of the Downs. Most of the need for a "cycle
        network" (all roads in Worthing are legal to cycle on,
        and form the real cycle network) would be removed
        at a stroke if 20mph borough-wide speed limits were
        introduced. Worthing already has relatively high
        levels of cycling, and is ideal for cycling levels like
        those in places like Cambridge or continental
        European towns. It's about time cycling as a first-
        class mode of transport was taken seriously by          20mph speed limits where people live. A simple way to

                             I am delighted to see that improvements are underway to facilitate cycling in Bognor
                             Regis.

                             About three years ago my wife and I tried to cycle from Bognor railway station to Pagham
                             and the experience was horrifying. So much so that I did send an email expressing my
                             disgust at the time.
                             It did seem that Bognor was a very uncycle friendly town, with the Promendade
                             prohibited for cyclist as well as many other places. We were forced onto a very busy
                             coast road in the gutter with fast and large vehicles whizzing by, very dangerous and off
                             putting. It is stating the obvious that so many cyclists have been killed on the roads by
                             cars, lorries etc. How many pedestrians have EVER been killed by cyclists !!!!

                             Why this has taken so long I dont know but I, for one, am pleased and will visit again
                             very soon to see how it is now.

       Crawley Borough Council   RE: CONSULTATION ON PROVISIONAL WEST SUSSEX TRANSPORT PLAN 2011-
                                 2026

                                 Thank you for inviting Crawley Borough Council to comment on the provisional West
                                 Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2026. It was noted that a questionnaire was supplied with
                                 the consultation document and an attempt has been made to answer the questions that
                                 were posed (see attached). However, it was felt that many of the comments that the
                                 Borough Council wished to make on the document were more easily expressed by letter.

                                 Overarching Comments
                                 The initial consultation exercise relating to the Transport Plan, which was carried out at
                                 the start of the year, was at a relatively high level. In the intervening period therefore, a
                                 lot of work has obviously been undertaken to pull this provisional document together.
                                 The Borough Council is disappointed not to have been more involved in this process.

                                 It is considered that it would have been advantageous to all if the District and Borough
                                 Councils had been invited to contribute in-between the two formal consultation periods,
                                 as had been the case during the preparation of previous Transport Plans. This would
                                 have taken advantage of the knowledge of the area that the local authorities have and
                                 would have dovetailed neatly with the work already being undertaken to inform the
                                 respective Core Strategies. It could have been easily arranged and would have built on
                                 the existing partnership working between the two tiers of government (for example, the
                                 DaSTS Gatwick Diamond Leaders' Forum). Indeed, this may have avoided some of the
                                 errors relating to Crawley in the current document (as detailed below).

                                 As it stands, the Borough Council considers that the proposed Transport Plan does not
                                 appear to fulfil an obvious role in shaping the future for transport in West Sussex. It has
                                 some aspirational visions and goals but these are not sufficiently developed on a local
                                 level and are certainly not reflected in the Implementation Plan section of the document,
                                 which largely details initiatives already planned over the coming years (largely linked to
                                 development proposals). Certainly, there is very little discussion about what will happen
1015                             beyond 2016 for each of the strategic places. Surely one of the purposes of a Transport
                                 Plan that covers a 15 year period is to concentrate on the period beyond 2016, so that

                                     We (Councillors on the Lynchmere Parish Council) have been circulated the West
                                     Sussex Local Transport Plan Consultation document.

                                     My initial reaction is that I can think of no justification for expending taxpayers money on
                                     this sort of exercise when everyone knows that there are swinging cuts in transport in
                                     prospect. Furthermore it is unhelpful to demand a large number of other people invest
                                     their time in a pointless exercise which has been overtaken by the new financial climate.

                                     Please stop wasting our time and money.

                  I hope you don't mind me feeding back Metrobus' LTP3 comments in this way, rather
       Metrobus   than through the full questionnaire as I would like to comment specifically on bus
                  issues....

                  - In the bus passenger transport summary on p43 I think that the provision of the Real
                  Time Passenger Information system is a key feature that is omitted. The claim that
                  WSCC provides bus stops isn't totally true as bus operators generally supply the bus
                  stop signs themselves

                  - In the crime section on p49 there is mention of the fitment of CCTV at Southern stations
                  but no mention of the efforts of bus operators to provide it on buses (100% of our fleet is
                  fitted for example)

                  - In the Public Transport Infrastructure and Information section on p63:
                      - Consideration should be given to the provision of bus priority measures such as bus
                  lanes, bus only links and traffic light priority
                       - Real Time Information provision is key to information provision, which can be
                  enhanced through more displays at stops and roll out of SMS plates at bus stops
                      - It says that all bus stops should have timetable cases but I think that it has been
                  agreed that this isn't practical or desirable

                  - In the Crawley section, in the short term Public Transport Infrastructure & Information
                  section on p77:
                      - Consideration should be given to the provision of bus priority measures such as
                  additional bus lanes, bus only links and traffic light priority
                     - New bus shelters and RTPI screens funded through s106/CIL
                     - Creation of a Punctuality Improvement Partnership with local bus operators
                     - Parking enforcement to focus on hot spots on bus routes
                     - In the rail section, should the proposed new Gatwick station be mentioned?
                      - In the long term section, I would suggest that addition of Three Bridges Station
                  Interchange (although would be nice to see pre-2016!). Maybe upgrade to Crawley Bus
                  Station?

                              Re: Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2026

                              Arundel Town Council is pleased to have the opportunity to respond to your consultation
                              exercise concerning the Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan (LTP) 2011-2026. This
                              is because Arundel is severely impacted by the road infrastructure deficit in West
                              Sussex, particularly in relation to the A27, which even the Highways Agency admits is the
                              most unreliable trunk road in England, and also because the congestion on all the local
                              roads in this part of the County is both unacceptable and growing.

                              Thus, whilst we support any actions which will alleviate the transport problems that beset
                              the area, whilst we understand the need for WSCC to produce a new LTP by April 2011,
                              and whilst we accept that any such plan should concentrate on the first five year period
                              of the three such periods between now and 2026, we are nevertheless concerned about
                              three aspects of the Provisional LTP.

                              First, the LTP has a number of confusing, contradictory and seemingly out-of-date goals,
                              objectives, visions and aims which are driven primarily by almost total reliance on the
                              Department of Transport‟s (DfT) centrally-mandated goals, as set out in para 2.33 of the
                              LTP. However, the recent change of Government has brought new policies which
                              emphasise localism, and this means that there should now be far less concentration than
                              previously on the DaSTS process and its orchestrated emphasis on short-term low-cost
                              solutions to all transport-related problems. We therefore recommend that the revised
                              Plan should be concentrating instead on the list of key WSCC objectives set out in the
                              LTP‟s para 1.1.

                              Second, because the provisional LTP has, by definition, been written in support of the
                              now out-of-date and largely discredited DaSTS goals, the whole emphasis of the Plan is
                              biased towards detailed demand management and “soft” engineering solutions to the
1025                          County‟s transport problems, even though the traffic congestion on the roads is unlikely
       Having just read through the 103 page document i have to say Worthing seems to get
       the least investment of all areas.From a more personnel view reference Traffic Calming i
       see only two roads are mentioned ie Heene Rd and Columbia Drive.Lots of mention in
       the report ref Rat Runs i live on a major one ie Durrington Hill not only is this road used
       as a Rat Run but the weight restriction of 7.5t is ignored on a daily basis i have submitted
       many reports on the Police website Operation Crackdown but nothing is done as i fear
1026   the police themselves use this road as fast access to the A27
                                   Attached please find some comments on the consultation version of LTP3. They are
       Mid Sussex Bridleways Group those that relate to equestrians which 'leapt out of the page' - I have not, I'm afraid
                                   means considered the whole document!

                                     Although it is pleasing to see mention of horse riders in the plan, I feel that an overall
                                     understanding of how equestrian use the roads and bridleways is missing/ ill represented
                                     at times. Horses have to be exercised pretty much daily and always daily if long periods
                                     of winter weather mean that they cannot be turned loose in their fields. It is therefore a
                                     matter of great importance that either or both the roads must be safe or the bridleways
                                     well maintained and linked to each other.

                                     Remember that any improvement for horses means an improvement for cyclists and
                                     walkers too - they are almost as unsafe on the roads as equestrians. The transport plan
                                     needs to consider equestrians at every turn - Rights of Way and horse 'transport' are not
                                     a separate issue they and their 'highways' are an integral part of transport
                                     considerations.

                                     Paras 2.29/2.30 say that the RoWIP is a (separate?) “strategic document” while 4.87
                                     says that the RoWIP is integrated into this plan. No separate document is referenced if
                                     the former is intended to be the case. Or is it all in the section on P63/64.There are lots
                                     of references to the Rights of Way Improvement plan throughout the document sections
                                     – if the RoWIP is now included IN this document then the references should be to
                                     sections within the document itself. More clarity is definitely needed!

                                      I attach my response to the LTP consultation (MAIN SURVEY RESPONSE). My
                                      colleagues on our Accessibility Action Group have considered the responses.

                                      My access technology cannot cope with inserting text in boxes - perhaps WSCC might
                                      wish to consider making future public consultation surveys accessible to people who use
                                      access technology.

                                      Do please get in touch if any points require clarification or amplification.

                                      PREVIOUS EMAIL RECEIVED:

                                      Many thanks.

                                      I've made a start on the LTP- nothing about the travel requirements of disabled, frail
                                      elderly, people with luggage etc yet!

1031                                  I'll consult colleagues in our the Accessibility Action Group and get back to you.
       I enclose my consultation response in respect of the "Provisional West Sussex Transport
       Plan 2011-2026".

       Clearly much has changed since your provisional LTP was drafted, not the least of which
       has been the change of Government, its new approach to "localism", the Transport
       Minister's recent speech, and the DfT's recent letter on the topic.

       As you know, I believe that the LTP now needs a complete re-write centered around a list
       of local WSCC-related goals rather than the cheap-skate centrally-mandated DaSTS-
       related goals on which the present version is based.

       I therefore hope that you find my contribution helpful.

       ATTACHMENT RESPONSE:

       Re: Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2026

       I welcome the opportunity to comment on the Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan
       2011-2026 (LTP 3), and my detailed comments, which address four specific issues, are
       set out below. In essence, the demise of the SE Plan means that there is now a policy
       vacuum as far as transport infrastructure is concerned. Also, the LTP‟s DaSTS-related
       baseline and its balance between short and long term needs is now outdated.
       Additionally, please refer to my initial comments on LTP 3 which were contained in my E-
       Mail messages dated 15 and 19 July 2010.

       First, LTP 3 fails to take proper account of the fact that the SE Plan has been withdrawn.
       Without the support of the now-defunct SE Plan, and the related Regional Economic
       Strategy (RES), there is a vacuum as far as overall road transport policy is concerned.
       LTP 3 should therefore include details of the road policy background, starting with those
       emphasised in the recent House of Commons Transport Select Committee Report HC
       505 (March 2010) which includes information that is relevant to W Sussex , such as:

       Hurstpierpoint & Sayers
       Common Parish Council     Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2016

                                 Thank you for your consultation information received by us on 30 July 2010. The
                                 proposals were considered by our Planning & Environment committee at its meeting on
                                 19 August 2010, with the following comments:

                                 1.    Community access planning (CAP) (ref: page 23 - Part 1 : long-tem strategy) :
                                 We support this approach to the problems of the High Street, Hurstpierpoint and London
                                 Road, Sayers Common, which we believe would both benefit from a holistic attitude to
                                 the use of these thoroughfares.

                                 2.    Town Centre and Village Enhancements (TC&VE) (ref: page 27): similarly, we find
                                 this encouraging with Hurstpierpoint and Sayers Common specifically listed (ref: page 65
                                 – Part 2 – Implementation) although no timescale is mentioned.

                                 3.     The School Travel Initiatives (ref: page 65) do not include St Lawrence School and
                                 it is suggested that this is an unhelpful omission and should be added.


1033                             Your sincerely
                                   Officer comments on LTP3: September 2010

                                   Part 1: Long Term Strategy

                                   1. Need for Specific Action Plan: Whilst the Long Term Strategy section was useful in
                                   that it included a lot of information, Officers found this information to be quite general
                                   with no clear targets set identifying exactly how the vision was to be achieved in the long
                                   term. This made the relationship between the strategy and implementation section
                                   appear to be very weak. For example under point 3.29 an action is identified to „develop
                                   town centre [cycle] networks in major towns.‟ Whilst this action is desirable, it does not
                                   provide detail on how this could be achieved. The point could subsequently be
                                   strengthened by including a reference to the delivery of clear actions identified in the
                                   Horsham Cycle Review, 2009.

                                   The Horsham Cycle forum currently working on a list of priorities from the Horsham
                                   Cycle Review document, and as such their views should be incorporated into the report.

                                   2. In addition, a number of points raised throughout this section, were not supported later
                                   on by actions included in the implementation plan. For example in para 3.33 the
                                   document states WSCC are to look „for more community-led solutions through
                                   Community Access Planning‟. Again this point is vague and could be strengthened by an
                                   objective in the implementation plan indicating exactly how this is going to be achieved.

                                   3. Future Influences: It was felt that Part 1 should include some consideration of how
                                   certain influences such as climate change and population growth are likely to change
                                   over the lifetime of the plan. This information could then be used to identify future
                                   problems facing the county which LTP3 would need to address.

                                   4. Cycle Provision: A priority of LTP2 was to improve cycling provision in Crawley,
                                   Worthing and Chichester. We were therefore disappointed to see that improvements to
                                   the cycle network in and around Horsham have not been identified as a key priority in
       Horsham District Council,   LTP3. The Horsham Cycle Review published in January 2009 details exactly what is
1035   Planning Officer Comments   needed to improve the network in and around Horsham and this information could have
                                    We met at the LTP3 meeting of the Horsham Community Partnership Transport Sub
                                    Group so I am taking the opportunity to send the views of Denne Neighbourhood Council
                                    to you directly rather than via the on-line survey. We have completed the survey as much
                                    as possible although parts are not relevant to us & I am also attaching detailed requests
                                    for Implementation in our area of Horsham.

                                    Suggestions for LTP3 Implementation re Horsham

                                    The majority of plans for Horsham are related to the West of Horsham Development &
                                    will be part or wholly Developer Funded.
                                    Other areas of Horsham seem to be neglected.

                                 Slinfold Parish Council Meeting 26th August 2010

                                 Comments on West Sussex Transport Plan 2011 – 2026

                                 NEW RAILWAY STATION
                                 We accept that the plan is „local‟ but that does not eliminate the need for a larger project
                                 that would meet the needs of many and at the same time that would be very
                                 environmentally friendly. It is proposed that a New Railway Station should be provided
                                 adjacent to the A24 just south of Horsham together with a very large Car and secure
                                 Cycle Park (replacing Christs Hospital station). It would take much traffic from the roads
                                 around and through Horsham, eliminate the daily and weekly street parking problems
                                 around Horsham and Littlehaven Stations, and would become a long term off-site car
                                 park for Gatwick Airport. The area served would be from Chichester to Worthing and all
                                 the towns between up to and including Horsham. It would enhance the value of the
                                 thousands of homes proposed for the adjacent area to the west of Horsham (whose
                                 developers should be asked to contribute to the cost). It would allow the railway
                                 companies to improve the relatively poor Arun Valley rail services (and thus again they
                                 should be asked to contribute). It would be in an area of flood risk (near the sewage
                                 works?) that is not suitable for housing or agriculture (and both the station and car park
                                 could easily and economically be protected from flood). Private investment companies
                                 are likely to be interested in such a project and if so with the contributions from the
                                 housing and railway companies it would reduce the burden on the taxpayer. It would
                                 remove the need for some of the local improvements proposed in the plan and answer
                                 many of the local concerns expressed at the meetings held to discuss the plan.

                                 PAGE 66 – Town Centre & Village Enhancements
                                 • Slinfold Village – Please clarify just exactly what is being proposed with regard to
                                 enhancements?

                                 OTHER IMPORTANT PROPOSALS:
                                 Proposals relating to Slinfold that should ALSO form part of the Plan:

1038   Slinfold Parish Council   1. The inclusion of mainline railway stations as route objectives for all rural bus services
                                   The main issues raised by Fairbridge Way Travellers:
                                   1) The single biggest issue for Travellers at Fairbridge Way concerned the absence of a
                                   nearby bus stop and bus route which the children could use to get to school safely, and
                                   that others could use to travel into town. They argued (along with the Traveller
                                   Education Service Representative) that a lack of an accessible bus service prevented
                                   children from being able to get to school, particularly in cases where parents are unable
                                   to drive. Some suggested putting a bus lay-by in Isaacs Lane if buses could not be
                                   persuaded to go as far as the site. Others suggested using a type of demand-led public
                                   bus service, much like the old 'Doris' bus which used to operate in Midhurst.
                                   2) A lack of a safe public footpath/pavement along Fairbridge Way,
                                   3) A lack of lighting at night so that people walked in the dark
                                   4) A lack of traffic calming or warning signs, and speed limits being enforced,
                                   particularly at peak times. Traveller thought signs which would light up and say 'please
                                   slow down, or 'children playing' or 'children crossing' would be useful
                                   5) Travellers also suggested making additional rail station improvements which would
                                   make them more accessible for those with a disability. An elevator at Wivesfield Station
                                   was suggested, and the idea supported by several others present at the meetings
                                   6) Lisa Williams from STAG (the Sussex Traveller Action Group), commented that she
                                   had been talking to Gypsies and Travellers living on WSCC sites about their access to
1040   Fairbridge Way Travellers   services. Lisa had found that many of the residents at other WSCC sites faced similar
                                   West Sussex Local Transport Plan Consultation

                                   The Transport Plan was discussed at this month‟s meeting of the Planning Committee of
                                   Southwater Parish Council, and it wishes to make the following comments.

                                   There is a general feeling that this document has been produced due the fact that the
                                   County is required to produce it, rather than to identify real need. Many of the proposals
                                   for the Horsham area are already listed in the Blue Book.

                                   A “road show” was held to publicise the LTP3, but this was poorly advertised – for
                                   example the Parish Office received a poster advertising the event in the post the morning
                                   that the event took place. The Parish Council would like to know how many people
                                   attended these “road shows.”

                                   There seems to be a lack of clear strategic policies, with generic statements being made
                                   such as “making cycling more attractive and safer by providing facilities for cyclists”
                                   without putting into place strategies as to how that is to be achieved.

                                   The Horsham section of the LTP3 is based around the town of Horsham, rather than
                                   considering Horsham District. No consideration is given, for example, to the small market
                                   towns of Southwater, Billingshurst, Pulborough, Storrington, Steyning and Henfield.

                                   The whole plan promotes improvements to cycling networks and cycling facilities, but the
                                   Crawley area has 12 cycling schemes identified, whilst Horsham has none. There are
                                   proposals to improve cycling networks in Horsham, but these are difficult to identify,
                                   being shown on a small scale map, and not listed in the text.

                                   It was felt at the meeting that the different needs of cyclists had not been identified; some
                                   routes could be commuter routes, whilst some were purely leisure routes.

                                   One example of this is the cycle route from Southwater to Horsham, via Bourne Hill and
1041   Southwater Parish Council   Chesworth Farm. This could be used by commuters to Horsham, but the surfaces vary

                                    comments on the Local Transport Plan. . This consultation was considered by our
                                    Planning Committee at their meeting on 2 August 2010 and subsequently on 13
                                    September 2010 when the attached response was approved (MAIN SURVEY

                                    At the meeting held on the 2 August a number of issues were identified which were
                                    highlighted in an email sent to ………… on 9 August 2010. The attached response
                                    should be read in conjunction with this email.

                                    COMMENTS FROM EMAIL:

                                    Our Planning Committee recently considered how to respond to the West Sussex County
                                    Council Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan. A number of concerns were raised
                                    which I have summarised below.

                                    •     Although Burgess Hill has been recognised as a strategic location it was felt that
                                    work needed to commence earlier than 2015 especially if developer contributions were
                                    to be sought. In addition, it should be undertaken on a holistic basis to future proof the
                                    town for the inevitable longer term development of the town.
                                    •     The map on page 71 of the document showing strategic development sites is out
                                    of date as other sites have either been allocated or approved for housing e.g. Small
                                    Scale Housing sites;

                             West Sussex LTP3: comments of the South Downs Society

                             The South Downs Society has well over 2,000 members and its focus is campaigning
                             and fundraising for the conservation and enhancement of the South Downs National
                             Park and its quiet enjoyment. Our comments on the draft LTP will reflect this focus.

                             Part1: Long Term Strategy

                             2.1    Third bullet: revise to read “improved quality of life and the environment”.

                             2.13 We welcome the LTP3 commitment to put walking and cycling at the heart of local
                             transport & public health strategies.

                             2.26 We welcome the commitment in the West Sussex Rural Strategy -- to maintain a
                             high quality rural environment accessible to all.

                             2.27 Highway works must have regard to the strategy to protect & enhance the West
                             Sussex landscape.

                             2.29 High priority should be given to the ROW Improvement Plan, in particular the
                             creation or improvement of accessible rights of way from towns and villages into the
                             countryside including high quality circular walks for those with limited mobility.

                             2.36 Rural bus services should meet the needs of recreational users as well as rural
                             residents.

                             2.37 Alternatives to the car must be adequately publicised by every means if any modal
                             shift is to be achieved.

                             2.40    Add 'South Downs NPA' to examples of partnership working.

                             2.41 All bus companies should be required to sign up to a Quality Bus Partnership to
1043   South Downs Society   ensure consistent levels of service/quality.
                                     Please see attached. We see this as forming the core of our strategy for the future and        1044 Horsham
                                     will be refining it and adding more data, inspired by our collegaues in Crawley, in due      Cycling Schemes Priority.pdf
1044    Horsham Cycling Forum        course. We will also give it wider circulation to forum members, local councillors, etc..
                                     Below is a short list of transport issues of most concern to North Horsham Parish that
                                     HDCP support.
                                     Parking on grass verges
                                     Cleaning cycle lanes in particular at traffic calming installations were debris gather and
                                     sweepers cannot access.
                                     Electronic bus timetables
                                     Over crowding at Littlehaven Station and length of platforms
                                     We particularly wish to see more real time displays.
                                     A Horsham District Scrutiny working group is looking at parking on verges. A way
                                     forward might be to prosecute a few people for damage done to the verge. This might
1045a   North Horsham Parish Council deter others.
                                     The previous documents that Horsham District Community Partnership have submitted
                                     to you have included a large number of issues raised by members present at the
                                     meetings.
                                     So that our main concerns are not lost amongst the more detailed comments the top few
                                     are summarised below.

                                     1. The role Community Transport should play must be stated in detail. The role may be
                                     different between the rural and more urban areas.
                                     2. If the proposed Social Enterprise is seen as a way of improving community transport
                                     its role should be fully described and it should be more strongly supported within the plan
                                     with a timetable for its introduction included. Apart from the many anticipated benefits its
                                     introduction could address the need for there to be better information available about
                                     available community transport.
                                     3. The basic public transport (bus) network required should be described.
                                     4. The use of funds to subsidise all forms of transport, buses, community transport and
                                     subsidised fares, should be justified in terms of the effect that the expenditure has.
                                     5. The strategy section should be specific about its policies; about the things it will do to
                                     achieve the various objectives and not just describe the outcomes aspired to. It should
                                     be made claer that these policies will as funds allow be applied in all areas of the County
                                     and not just in the strategic locations.
                                     6. The implementation sections for the strategic locations must contain a similar level of
                                     detail.
                                     7. The plan should identify problems that will arise over the period of the plan and need

                                  Part 1 – Long Term Strategy

                                  Our Strategic Goals

                                  • Support Economic Growth (Competitiveness and Productivity)
                                  • Reducing Carbon Emissions (Climate Change)
                                  • Promote Equality of Opportunity (Social Equity)
                                  • Better Safety, Security and Health
                                  • Improve Quality of Life and a Healthy Natural Environment (Quality of Life)

                                  2.5. To aid the process of prioritisation, we have developed 5 packages of options that
                                  will help us to focus investment over the lifetime of LTP3. The packages will emphasise
                                  measures and interventions that support each of the strategic goals. These will be
                                  discussed in more detail later in this document.

                                  In view of the current economic climate, and the restrictions on public spending over the
                                  immediate future, it is imperative that these strategic goals are prioritised and
                                  expenditure focussed on the key priorities. Of the 5 packages of options, Supporting
                                  Economic Growth is the key priority, followed by Promoting Equality of Opportunity.

                                  Expenditure on Reducing Carbon Emissions should at this time be limited to meeting
                                  compulsory requirements or targets within the Short Term plan period 2011 – 2016.

                                Introduction. The Plan sets out the national, regional and county context and local
                                strategies. The Plan covers an extensive spectrum of topics from the full gamut of wider
1047   Warnham Parish Council   objectives to which the Plan seeks to contribute e.g. social equity, climate change, health

                                 Regarding the consultation on the Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2026,
                                 Kingston Parish Council has the following comments:
                                 1. There is no reference to the problems experienced in Kingston and East Preston
                                 caused by long waiting times at the railway crossings at Roundstone and Angmering
                                 Station when the barriers are down for periods up to 20 minutes a time, despite there
                                 being significant time lapses between each train which at other locations allow for the
                                 barriers to lift between trains. This should be included with actions planned to improve
                                 this.
                                 2. The long awaited improvement to the A27 at Arundel should be given more
                                 prominence with more detailed information about actions planned to lobby for/achieve
                                 this.

                                       I refer to the consultation on the above document. Although it is not considered
                                       appropriate for the Council to complete a questionnaire in this instance, I have the
                                       following Council Officer level only comments to make on the Crawley/Gatwick Airport
                                       and M23/A23 Corridor:

                                       1      The growth in air travel at Gatwick Airport to 40 million passengers per annum
                                       should be limited, in addition to environmental considerations, by the capacity of the road
                                       and public transport networks that serve the Airport.

                                       2       The Plan should encourage and facilitate good East/West public transport links
                                       including routes for rail, in particular, utilising the Redhill/Tonbridge railway line (subject
                                       to appropriate environmental mitigation), and coach/bus services centred on the public
                                       transport hub of Gatwick Airport.

                                       3      There should be specific policies and proposals in the Plan to encourage staff,
                                       passengers and visitors to travel to and from Gatwick Airport by public transport rather
                                       than by car.

                                       4      Infrastructure improvements arising from 1, 2 and 3 above, in particular, an
                                       upgrade of the Airport railway station, including improved access for the disabled, should
                                       be provided as a pre-requisite of any further development proposals resulting from the
                                       Gatwick Airport Interim Master Plan.

                                       5      The Plan should encourage and facilitate enhanced rail services on the East
1051   Tandridge District Council      Grinstead railway line, in particular, to ensure that Thameslink Programme peak hour

                             The Coastal West Sussex Partnership welcomes the opportunity to comment on the draft
                             LTP3.

                             It is essential that transport policy supports regeneration and the economy of West
                             Sussex and the Partnership believe that the LTP should recognise these objectives as
                             the priority. The LTP should focus on measures to deal with congestion and improve
                             accessibility to and from the coast. Measures to reduce journey times and congestion on
                             the A27 are essential if business in the area is to thrive.

                             Individual members of the Partnership will provide detailed responses to the consultation
                             as appropriate.

                               Sussex Community Rail Partnership
                               We have submitted the on-line consultation response but would like to make additional
                               points which do not fit easily in the response format.
                               1. We welcome the inclusion of the Sussex Community Rail Partnership (SCRP) in the
                               Plan and the recognition of the objectives of the Arun valley Line Partnership. We are
                               committed to assist WSCC in achieving its transport objectives through the work of the
                               Partnership.
                               2. We welcome the clear role the County expects rail to take in delivering a more
                               sustainable transport structure for the people of West Sussex . You recognise this in
                               para 3.39 "....the backbone of the public transport network". To underline this perhaps
                               some of the long lists of actions (e.g. para 3.14) could have rail higher up the list ---
                               accepting that the lists are not meant to indicate priorities but the natural approach of the
                               reader is to dwell longer and think more about the early entries in a list. The Gatwick list
                               (para 3.30), where rail is obviously a very important public access route, does have rail
                               much higher. Oh, and put a photo of a train on the cover!
                               3. Perhaps in the section on strategic rail network it would be helpful for the county to
                               point out the need for continued central govt investment in rail infrastructur and rolling
                               stock as demand will continue to increase and is already overloaded at certain times
                               and on certain routes. Action by Network Rail and/or the TOC cannot alleviate the
                               overcrowding let alone accomodate increased demand.
                               4. The need to strengthen the provision of a seamless public transport service is
                               recognised in the plan but perhaps can be brought out more. Bus and rail services

       Sussex Community Rail   community bus groups. Associated with this could be the increased provision of real time

                                Response from West Sussex Rail Users Association to West Sussex County Council
                                consultation on the draft Transport Plan 2010 to 2025
                                Introduction
                                1. West Sussex Rail Users Association (WSRUA) is an independent membership
                                organisation that campaigns for improvements in rail services in West Sussex. WSRUA
                                has several hundred members and the Association is recognised and consulted by
                                Southern Railways, Network Rail, Passenger Focus and the Arun Valley Community Rail
                                Partnership as a stakeholder in rail services.
                                2. This is the WSRUA response to the Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-
                                2026. Our comments are restricted to the aspects of travel that concern our members
                                and rail users which are: - rail travel on the West Coastway and Arun Valley lines;
                                interconnection with bus services; the accessibility of rail services to potential customers
                                in the County.

                                WSRUA Response to Part One – Long Term Strategy. WSRUA agree that the issues
                                concerning rail travel in the County include:
                                3. Accessibility.
                                3.1 WSCC have recognised that that the rural nature of much of the County and the
                                paucity of public transport demands that the car is a necessity for many people (paras
                                2.37; 3.31; 4.19) and our membership and knowledge of the county bear out this fact.
                                3.2 The Plan places great emphasis on increasing the use of cycling and walking for
                                improving health and as an aid to reduction in carbon emissions and we agree that
                                these are laudable aims. However the Plan fails to recognise that for many regular users
                                of rail services the distances involved, the lack of street lighting and pavements in rural
                                areas and the lack of dedicated cycle lanes militate against walking or cycling to stations
                                for all but the most athletic risk takers.
                                3.3 The Plan talks about offering choice (4.38) but fails to acknowledge fully that the
                                majority of rail users in the Arun Valley must access their preferred rail station by car
                                because that is the safest and often the only transport available.
                                3.4 We would like WSCC to acknowledge that rail users are already reducing their
                                carbon footprint, at considerable financial and personal cost with much extended working
       West Sussex Rail Users   days.

                         westbound approach. No road markings on carriageway to seperate traffic flows
1057                     between A27/ A24 (south).
                         Sorry for this late response to the Transport Plan. I agree with your major aims for
                         Chichester which I interpret to be to push the government to fund improvements to the
                         A27, improve routes for and encourage cyclists and promote P&R for the city.

                         However I think you should go further and promote 20mph for all residential roads in the
                         city (and indeed in the County).

                         The District Council are at present following a 'do minimum' approach to parking and
                         cars in the city and if after a few years it doesn't work they will look again at Park and
                         Ride. I think they are ignoring the severity of the problem. Putting a few extra parking
                         spaces in will only encourage cars to enter the city and then trawl around looking for a
                         space. This ignores the impact of cars on the environment, on other road users and on
                         pedestrians. I consider that the city can only benefit, including the traders, by
                         implementing a P&R scheme as soon as possible. I realise this must be linked to
                         changes to the A27, to which end the County should be vigorously lobbying the
                         government.

                         I also consider the County Council (and the District) must be proactive in putting in
                         provision for cyclists when any new road scheme/alterations are even considered. They
1058                     should not be an afterthought. In ten years time I am sure planners in the County (and
       I would like to add some additional comments:

       1) "In town without your car day" should be promoted externally not just internally - I am
       so cross that MY council tax was spent on producing glossy, expensively designed
       posters to promote this international day for the internal use of CDC and these posters
       were not even put up for public display. Nottingham's council managed to take over 100
       car parking spaces 4 years ago - no wonder Nottingham gets in the paper and wins
       prizes.

       2) This city is a nightmare for pedestrians - it is just nearly impossible to cross the road at
       the big roundabouts that the planners have put in. There are just so many cars that you
       have to wait and wait and wait to be able to get across the road e.g. at Northgate near
       the Church crossing St Pauls's Road and Broyel Road. Oaklands Way crossing near the
       Tennis Club. Westhampnett Road crossing to get to Crematorium. Orchard Street. Cars
       do not let pedestrians cross - we need to put in some zebra crossings to re-balance the
       dominance of the car

       3) Fishbourne Road East Bridge should not be built. This will definitely reduce the
       number of people who will bother to walk or cycle to Tesco's. More people will drive. I
       am sure that the bridge will take a lot longer to go over and be hard for people with
       children, push chairs, shopping, bikes. £2 million will be spent and you will not be
       helping pedestrians or cyclists but you will lead to more car journies.
1059   The whole planning of our cities needs to be re-assessed. You need to build facilities
                                    In conjunction with the returned Questionnaire.

                                    These are Brief notes in support of better provision for cycling and I am aware other
                                    cyclists in the County will be submitting detailed responses as well.

                                    Therefore, I wish to highlight a few issues as follows;

                                    1. A 15 Year 2011-2026 fully funded programme for cycle infrastructure is needed

                                    2. Transport Budgets should be tailored to match the funding needed - We are talking in
                                    millions.

                                    3. Cycle Audits should be produced annually set against the costed programme

                                    4. 'Graded' Cycle Maps are needed for each Town and this is a very effective initial
                                    investment, as each street is assessed.

                                      In fact on the Consultation Day in Haywards Heath I was running a Cycle Forum at the
                                    Town's Eco Fair to discuss the
                                      Implementation Map p.85 - obvious errors were noted and a subsequent meeting is
                                    being arranged to address in response
                                      to the comment on P.83 - Further work is needed to develop a Cycle Network and this
                                    should be done on the basis of producing
                                      Graded Maps

                                    5. Connecting links need to be reinforced in the Document. Examples in Mid Sussex
                                    being.

                                    Forest Ways.

                                Comment:West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2026 – Worthing Area The proposed plan
                                was discussed at our Board Meeting on 15 September 2010 with regards to the
                                proposed cycle route in Ferring. The observations areas follows: 1. The proposals are
                                totally unnecessary given the present route would appear to already be working and the
                                A259 cycle path is, we understand, currently well used. 2. Rife Way is a residential area
                                and is already congested with parked vehicles. A cycle route would cause problems
                                given the obvious density of car/van parking throughout this road. 3. The road through
                                Ferring Country Centre, our premises, is owned by the Centre not WSCC or the
                                Environment Agency. The Centre objects to it being used as a cycle path. The Centre
                                provides a day service and Horse Riding Facilities to children and adults with learning
                                difficulties. Our drive (the proposed route) is frequently used throughout each day by
                                disabled riders along with our clients, instructors and carers. The addition of a cycle
                                route would create dangerous situations and we could not be held responsible for any
1061   Ferring Country Centre   accidents that may occur. 4. The proposed path on the west side of the Rife is not a

1063   Officer Comments
       Given that I missed completing the online form response in relation to this, I understand
       that I can write to you to register my objection to the inclusion of the closure of
       Fishbourne Road East rail crossing and the "creation of a new cycle and overbridge
       (funded by Network Rail)" as a Safety Engineering measure in the proposed LTP (page
       73).

       This proposal went out to public consultation (allegedly offering "options" for
       consultation) last November and, despite having been involved at that stage, I have
       heard nothing further.

       My objection to the proposals is informed by that consultation and living locally and being
       a regular user of that crossing for leisure and shopping trips to/from Tesco over the last
       7+ years (from being pregnant with toddler and shopping in a buggy, to manouvering 2
       children and shopping with a double buggy, to recent cycling trips accompanied by up to
       three 6-10-year-old children) as well as being keenly aware (through family and
       neighbours) of the effects on mobility and health of growing old and intending my home
       to stay in this immediate area until I die. My family's lifestyle avoids using the car for days
       on end and is supported by good and accessible local facilities; for local (and sometimes
       further afield) journeys we feel privileged to be able to walk or cycle (which I'm fairly new
       to and improving). In terms of WSCC's key goals, this lifestyle supports local businesses
       and facilities, carbon/pollution reduction, health and community (walking in particular is a
       great way to meet people and to keep in touch with what's happening locally - we love
       the chance to chat to others on our school walk).

       From last year's consultation, my understanding is that a bridge can only be provided in a
       convoluted zig-zag set away from the existing convenient and highly visible line of travel.
       It would be a huge and hugely expensive structure significantly:
          1. lengthening the journey length and time to pedestrians and cyclists;
          2. increasing the physical effort required to negotiate the crossing;
          3. increasing the obstacles to crossing, as I understand that there is an extremely high
       level of use by cyclists (which includes parents with child carriers, tag-alongs, groups out
       for recreation and even the odd canoe trailer!) - the currently short crossing enables a
1064   high level of courtesy, so that "bulky" users/groups are able to wait for others to cross
                                                                                                                             1065 response.pdf

                                   One of the overwhelming issues is the Chichester bypass which affects anyone travelling
                                   in this part of the country and must have an enormous detrimental effect on the
1066   Donnington Parish Council   economy.
                                   MAIN SURVEY MORE ABOUT YOU SECTION - I strongly recommend that these
                                   supplementary questions be deleted from future consultations to save you and your
                                   respondents time and money processing them. Hopefully, the current Deputy PM would
1067   Singleton Parish Council    concur with this position.
                               At the meeting of the South Chichester County Local Committee it was announced that
                               the consultation period for the Provisional West Sussex Transport Plan 2011-2026 has
                               been extended. I therefore wish to submit the following comments on behalf of East
                               Broyle Residents' Association.

                               We are concerned that the Implementation Plan proposed for Chichester (Part 2 pp 72-
                               75) is not sufficiently robust to tackle the increasing traffic problems in the City. The
                               initiatives stated in the provisional plan are both laudable and mostly welcome, but you
                               must be aware that the traffic problems are already acute and are getting worse. At
                               times there is gridlock on some town roads that access and exit the City and only minor
                               incidents can bring the City to a virtual halt. Air Quality has already been adversely
                               affected and I understand that Chichester has one of the poorest records for any town in
                               the County.

                               We believe that initiatives to persuade people to walk or cycle will result in no more than
                               a minimal improvement to our traffic problems and travel planning is destined to have a
                               similarly limited impact. While we would not want to deter the County from developing
                               these projects our point is that they will not solve, or even significantly ease, the
                               fundamental problems of traffic congestion in Chichester.

                               Chichester is, and always has been, an expensive place to live both in terms of house
                               prices and living costs generally. No amount of additional housebuilding will change this.
                               It is also a very desirable place to live being close to the Downs and the sea/harbour.
                               The effect of these factors is that a lot of people travel from outside Chichester to work in
                               the City and conversely there are many 'migrants' who live in Chichester and travel to
       East Broyle Residents   work in neighbouring areas. The resulting traffic flows in and out of the City cause much
1068   Association             of the congestion.

1071   Mid Sussex District Council   As a point of clarification, please note that in our response to the Strategic Environmental
                                            Members, at a meeting of the Public Services Committee on 9 September 2010,
                                     noted the detailed proposals for East Grinstead contained within the Local Transport
                                     Plan. Whilst there was support for the Plan it was felt it needed strengthening in a
                                     number of important areas.


                                              Cycling
                                              With regard to cycling infrastructure and promotion it was felt that what is needed
                                     is a holistic plan with clear and detailed proposals, particularly addressing the issue of
                                     joining the Sustrans National Cycle Route between the end of the Worth Way and the
                                     beginning of the Forest Way. Reference was made to the meeting with the County
                                     Council‟s Cycling Officer in late 2008 when it was confirmed that East Grinstead was
                                     identified for such a plan following completion of work in Chichester, Crawley and
                                     Worthing. We again urge that work for East Grinstead be prioritised here.


                                            Controlled Parking Zones
                                            In relation to the review of the Controlled Parking Zones scheme it was agreed
                                     that that this work is hugely important and has been the subject of much
                                     correspondence. We understand the East Grinstead (North Mid Sussex) CLC supports
                                     the early conclusion of this work and specifically the need to address problem areas
                                     such as St Agnes Road and adjacent streets and the area around Queen Victoria
                                     Hospital in particular.


                                            School Travel Initiatives
                                            In respect of the school travel initiatives Members wished to emphasise that they
1072   East Grinstead Town Council   have previously fully supported the new school safety zone in Crossways Avenue
                                      I apologise for the delay in responding to the consultation. We have just a few
                                      comments/observations to make as follows:

                                      Page 13 2.40 "Partnership Working"
                                      Cross-boundary working is not identified under Partnership Working. ESCC would
                                      specifically welcome opportunities for cross-boundary working, on transport and wider
                                      issues, in the following areas:
                                      - East Grinstead: to examine the transport implications of housing development in East
                                      Grinstead.
                                      - Burgess Hill / Haywards Heath: to examine the transport infrastructure requirements of
                                      any potential housing allocations in this area that comes forward through the Local
                                      Development Framework process.
                                      - A23 Improvements: to support the safety improvements to the A23 between Handcross
                                      and Warninglid which will help to deliver an improved strategic transport network.
                                      - South Downs National Park: there is an opportunity for cross-boundary working (along
                                      with Hampshire and Brighton & Hove) to ensure a consistent approach to issues and
                                      concerns of the National Park Authority.

                                      Page 57 5.3 "The Options"
                                      I understand that LTP3 funding will be allocated to geographical areas with a view to
                                      spending priorities for transport interventions being determined locally. At the same time,
                                      a range of low, medium and high priorities have been identified as necessary to deliver
                                      the theme of each Investment Package. How will you ensure that the right interventions
                                      are chosen in each area in order to achieve the strategic goal?

                                      Page 38 "Rail Travel in West Sussex - Summary"
                                      The objectives listed all align with the type of work undertaken by ESCC. One additional
                                      point worth considering would be to undertake station audits (we and Kent CC have
       East Sussex County Council, recently done this) which can identify measures that the rail operators are prepared to

                                        I am contacting you in connection with the Local Transport Plans which
                                        I understand are being worked on at the moment.

                                        I would like to see 20mph zones throughout Haywards Heath and
                                        Lindfield, so that people feel able to cycle from their front doors and
                                        we can reduce the number of cars on the road.

                                        I would also like to see high quality cycling networks to provide local
                                        routes to everyday destinations (particularly schools) and the railway
                                        station.

                                        I cycle for short journeys, but frequently feel unsafe on roads with
                                        cars and lorries. When I talk to friends about cycling they say that it
                                        is too dangerous. Lots of UK towns have better provision of dedicated
                                        cycling and walking routes than we have here in Haywards Heath. I hope
                                        the LT plans will be able to chart the way forward for a more
1074                                    bicycle-friendly future.

                                       Traffic Calming @ Sea Lane Rustington.
                                       We in Cudlow Garden are very interested in this proposed scheme. Firstly it will enable
                                       us to walk more safely along Sea Lane (sometimes the traffic passes at speed and close
                                       to the pavement).
                                       Secondly it will make it safer to get onto Sea Lane from our two Estate roads, at present
                                       we have difficulty in joining the traffic as cars and vans block our vision by parking in Sea
                                       Lane and the Lay Bay.
                                       I have not seen your plans for the scheme but I am hoping that these problems can be
                                       eliminated before someone is injured either driving or walking.
1076                                   Look gorward to your response.
