Advice on Terror effect

You may have already heard that the Home Secretary has announced that the national threat level has now been increased to “Critical” following the terror attack in Manchester. This assessment means not only that an attack remains highly likely, but that a further attack may be imminent.

Arun are being regularly briefed by Sussex Police and they have confirmed that they have increased their armed policing capabilities across Surrey and Sussex and are undertaking high visibility patrols and extra community engagement.  At this stage, they have not seen a rise in community tension.

For those holding local events, we are being directed to  the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure’s  (CPNI) current advice on its website and advice and updates on the NaCTSO website:-

Pink Blue Route

Pink Blue Route still the preferred route since 1993.

There is a lot of talk about the Pink Blue route for the new bypass, we are assuming that this will be one of the route options that will be announced by Highways England in this Summer.  I know from conversations with residents that some people are not aware of the exact route and the history.  So please see the the map which comes from the Department of Transport and is still the preferred route.  It is featured on most maps and if you have purchased property in the last 24 years it would have come up on local searches.

The route was adopted in 1993. After a long period of consultation and interaction between the Government of the day, Department of Transport, Arundel Town Council, Arun District and West Sussex County Council. If you look at the map the existing A27 is closer to most houses in Arundel than the Pink Blue route,so bearing in mind measures to mitigate noise, I believe that traffic noise will actually reduce for most residents.  

There is a new Pro Bypass group been set up and you can sign up to show your support and receive emails at OneArundel.co.uk  the link is https://www.onearundel.co.uk/joinour-mailing-list

Until next Month, Paul Dendle is Arundel & Walberton Ward member on Arun DC. Email address is cllr.paul.dendle@arun.gov.uk

I have been contacted by quite a few residents regarding today's front page onthe Littlehampton Gazette,

 I have been sacked from the Cabinet for challenging the leadership, but I can assure everyone that i am still a Councillor and will continue to fight for Arundel & Walberton ward interests.

Also I will have more time to campaign for the Arundel Bypass and work on my new business
