A27 Consultation 2019

As you may be aware, Highways England are running a further consultation on the A27 Arundel Bypass. We have been examining the updated documents and have made a formal response to Highways England.

In short, our conclusions were

  • 2019 - an inadequate and misleading consultation brochure and processes, with damaging mistakes that repeat many of the failings experienced in 2017.
  • 2020 - impenetrable documentation, still misleading, general public no better informed, extremely difficult to understand.
    Online survey open to abuse.
