THE A259 TRAFFIC CONGESTION – THE BIG PETITION
We have been working hard with our partner campaign groups to put together this petition that asks B&HCC, ESCC & LDC to jointly take action to address the ever increasing traffic congestion between Brighton Marina and Newhaven in both directions. Click here for more details.
NEW DEVELOPER FOR ST AUBYNS SCHOOL SITE
We have become aware that the Cothill Trust have sold the site and playing field to Fairfax Properties. Click here for more details. We are keen to ensure that the boundary flint wall is maintained and are in discussion with B&HCC as we have been for some months now. We await a new planning application.
We have offered our help to the Parish Council as they continue to develop the Neighbourhood Plan. The Neighbourhood Plan will have a much weight attributed to it when new planning applications are submittted so we are keen to see the Draft Neighbourhood Plan as soon as possible.
45 properties in the village are at risk of exceeding nitrogen dioxide levels according to B&HCC’s Air Quality Action Plan. SAFE has a great working relationship with Dr Smallbone of Brighton University and we have a project running with more diffusion tube collecting data on the High Street.
There are many, many avenues and topics that we investigate, look into and we challenge B&HCC on a continual basis. There is much work that we are doing, too much to list here and there is indeed much more work to be done! If you would like to help us please let us know. We welcome people who can help deliver leaflets in the village and anyone who is interested in helping with a particular subject or being a committee member.
