Now that the A259 is completely gridlocked morning to dusk from Station Road roundabout to presumably (don't know for sure as can't get there!) Goring Roundabout does the APC have any idea how residents are supposed to be able to get out? We now have cement lorries vying for space with car transporters and significant increase in traffic coming up Weavers Hill through Roundstone Lane avoiding the Haskins roundabout. When are you going to send food parcels in? And.... this is just the beginning of our 10 year nightmare. Construction lorries have also been seen trundling up Weavers Hill. They haven't hit anything yet but wouldn't like to be on the bus if they both meet! Does anybody in the APC care enough to voice our objections to this insanity and put an end to this unceasing decimation of our green spaces for houses that nobody wants. Whatever happened to the NDP three years in the making and already past its sell by date?

Good morning and thank you for your question.

You will be aware that Angmering Parish Council objected to all of the planning applications for building on the Roundstone Lane sites, some of the reasons for which you outline in your questions. The applications considered to date by Arun District Council have all been passed, some in detail, some in outline. West Sussex County Council are responsible for highways and it has indicated that the A259 will be dualled around Angmering, using money from the developers to do so. In the circumstances, this is the best that can be wished for.

The Parish Council is constantly making the developers aware of contraventions of the planning consents, including when it is made aware of lorries using the wrong route to and from the site. It is also to be represented at the Angmering Development Advisory Group which has been set up to formally deal with such contraventions and to ensure that what is built is in accordance with planning permissions given.

The Parish Councilís abilities to make changes to plans already agreed is limited, but it will do what it can to make the best of a bad job. Parish councillors all live in the village, show that they care by volunteering substantial amounts of their own time, and are often frustrated by the little that can be changed when faced with the inevitable. The Parish Council currently has four vacancies and would welcome more people to come forward if they felt they can make a difference. There will be an election of all thirteen council positions in May 2015, which is a time when more of you could stand up and be counted.

The Angmering Neighbourhood Plan has been prepared, inspected by both Arun District Council an Independent Inspector and will be sent around early in January, with a referendum for all residents to vote on 22 January 2015
