Overall this consultation has been successful with a positive outcome and therefore we will be progressing this aspect of the project with the contractor.  I will keep the Parish Council and residents  informed on likely start dates.

Overview

As a part of the Blakes Mead housing works the developer has agreed to fund a number of measures to reduce the impact of the development on Felpham Village.

 

The first of the measures proposed is a new uncontrolled crossing at the junction of Upper Bognor Road, Felpham Road and Sea Road, locally known as Snooks Corner. 

 

The scheme is intended to provide a safer crossing point enabling local users to wait in the centre of the road safely whilst crossing.  The refuge should also slow traffic slightly as it enters and exits the bend by narrowing the lane with the eventual aim of implementing the 20mph zone.

Why We Are Consulting

At a public meeting in October 2015 local residents and businesses expressed concern about elements of the Felpham Relief Road mitigation measure proposals.  In response, the Director of Highways and Transport deferred progression of the proposals ahead of a review and stated that a wider consultation would be undertaken before any works were reprogrammed.
