Angmering Traffic Calming Scheme - Consultation Period

West Sussex County Council proposes to make a permanent Traffic Regulation Order, the effect of which will  introduce 20 mph speed limits and other traffic calming measures in Angmering as follows:

Extension of 20mph speed limits

To extend the current 20mph speed limit on Station Road southwards for a distance of 105 metres; to extend the current 20mph speed limit on Water Lane eastwards to a point 150 metres east of its junction with Dappers Lane; to extend the 20mph speed limit on High Street eastwards to its junction with Roundstone Lane; to introduce a 20mph speed limit on Weavers Hill throughout its entire length; to introduce a 20mph speed limit on Roundstone Lane from its junction with High Street, southwards to a point 140 metres south of its junction with Bramley Way.

The Order also consolidates other existing speed limits in Angmering for housekeeping purposes.  This part of the Order makes no changes to other speed limits in the area.

Installation of raised speed tables and cushions

It is also proposed to install raised ‘speed cushion’ features comprising of a pair of raised features each a total of 2m long (including ramps), up to 1.7 metres wide and 65mm high constructed in black macadam.  The gradient of the ramps on each feature will be 25% and the gap between the cushions will be 1 metre wide.  It is proposed to install these features on Station Road outside (1) The Old Baptist Chapel and (2) 46 Station Road, on Water Lane 50m east of its junction with Dappers Lane, and on High Street (1) 10m east of its junction with Honey Lane, (2) 17 metres east of its junction with The Avenals, (3) 85 metres east of its junction with The Avenals; and
 
To install full width speed table features as follows - Station Road: features will be installed at (1) the southern kerbline of Greenwood Drive, extending northwards for a distance of 65m and extending a distance of 6m into Greenwood Drive and 9m into East Drive; (2) the southern kerbline of Dell Drive, extending northwards for a distance of 29m and extending into Dell Drive for a distance of 11m; (3) the southern kerbline of Mill Road, extending northwards for a distance of 22m and extending into Mill Road for a distance of 7m, (4) a speed hump installed outside 40 Station Road 8m long; (5) a speed hump installed mid-way between the northern and southern junctions of Arundel Road 8m long.    Water Lane: a feature will be installed at the southern kerbline of Weavers Hill extending northwards by a distance of 28m and extending into Weavers Hill for a distance of 16m. Roundstone Lane: (1) a feature 42m long will be installed on the bend that forms the junction between the southern part of Roundstone Lane and Nursery Road.  This feature will also extend northwards to join up with the current raised feature at the junction of Roundstone Lane with Brougham Grove; (2) a feature 10m south of its junction with Lindfield Close 8m long, (3) a feature 10m south of its junction with Hammond close 8m long.

New residential property developments are presently being built in Angmering and Angmering Parish Council have chosen to use the highway improvement contributions paid by the developers to review the current traffic calming arrangements and speed limits in Angmering village.  The proposed new scheme removes the current ‘chicane’ features and replaces them with the speed cushions and speed tables detailed above.

This consultation period will run from 16 February 2017 to 9 March 2017.

The plans are available to view in Angmering Library and the Parish Council Office throughout the consultation period, and online at https://www.westsussex.gov.uk/roads-and-travel/traffic-regulation-orders/live-consultations-for-traffic-regulation-orders/joint-eastern-arun-live-tro-consultations/

 Summary Plan of Traffic Calming Features (larger version available from above link)

This is a key piece of work for the village and all residents are encouraged to have their say. Comments can be submitted online or you can download a consultation response form below. These forms can either be posted to West Sussex County Council at the address given on the form, or handed in at Angmering Library. Responses must be returned by 9 March 2017.

Snippets from the Draft Minutes of Angmering Parish Council's Meeting on 16 January 2017

County Council Matters
County Councillor Urquhart advised that the WSCC budget for the year commencing 1 April 2017 had now been completed. This would involve a [WSCC] council tax increase of 1.95% and in addition the 2% for social care permitted by central Government, making a total increase of 3.95%.

County Councillor Urquhart noted that consultation on expansion of St Wilfrid’s Catholic Primary School was in progress. This expansion, if it went ahead, would involve introduction of mobile classrooms at the school.

County Councillor Urquhart noted that the formal consultation for the Traffic Management Scheme, required under the Highways Act, would be carried out shortly. The Clerk reported that ......  the Parish Council wished to be a part of the formal consultation exercise.

Upholding the Neighbourhood Plan Policies - Judicial Review
The Clerk gave a brief update on discussions with the Parish Council’s  solicitors and Counsel. It was noted that the pre-action letter (required under the pre-action protocol applicable to this type of legal action) was expected to be sent during the course of the week commencing 16 January 2017. ADC would then have a certain amount of time to respond, and the content of that response would determine the next steps to be taken by the Parish Council. The Clerk noted that the Court had a variety of powers available to it in the event that it found in favour of the Parish Council, and those included orders quashing the decision and requiring it to be reconsidered

2016/2017 Budget & Precept
The Chairman reminded Councillors that the Clerk’s recommendation was that an increase was warranted given the continuing uncertainties involved in the legal costs for the potential Judicial Review, the need to be able to fulfil the asset renewal programme already agreed, and to make progress with the new projects that might present themselves for the coming year. The suggestion was that the current annual band D charge of £88.03 should be increased by £10, which would produce an extra £32,000 in budget. It needed to be noted that, averaged over the calendar year, this increase would add 83p per month to Band D Council Tax bills..
 

On a proposal by Councillor Marsh, seconded by Councillor Harris: That the Parish Council precept be increased in accordance with the Clerk’s recommendations as set out in his report – unanimously AGREED.

Telephone Box in The Square
BT had confirmed that this was due to be repaired shortly.

Delays for 3 weeks on A259

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is currently preparing designs for the improvement of the A259 Littlehampton Corridor.  This will comprise widening the stretches of single carriageway between the proposed Lyminster Bypass/A284 junction and the Body Shop Roundabout as well as between the Angmering Station Road Roundabout and the A280 Roundabout.

As a part of the design process WSCC has commissioned some further surveys of the local highway drainage network.  Specialist contractors will be on site for approximately 3 weeks starting on the 13th February.  Works will take place out of peak hours (09:30 – 15:30) Monday to Friday.  Weekend and evening/night works are not planned.

The works will consist of visual and camera inspection with jetting of ducts where required.  It is likely some Traffic management in the form of temporary lights or Stop/Go boards will be used during the works. Localised highway disruption is likely during the works.

Tackling exploitation of elders in Sussex

Katy Bourne, the Police & Crime Commissioner for Sussex, has made tackling elder exploitation one of her top priorities in a bid to protect older people in the county from financial abuse. She says: “We know that fraud against our older and more vulnerable residents is a growing issue as our population ages and criminals see that fraud is more profitable and less risky than other crimes. In Sussex, fraud has robbed some older people of their entire life savings and left others destitute.

“I have been lobbying the Government to take account of demographics when calculating the amount of funding that is allocated to each police force and to acknowledge the rise in crimes against our elderly. “The operational response from Sussex Police has also been excellent. They have developed Operation Signature to help protect and support those most at risk of fraud, and the model has been nationally recognised and is being adopted by other police forces.

“The problem is that many people don’t realise that they’ve been a victim of fraud – they think it’s just a scam, or they feel foolish and don’t want to tell anyone. But scams are fraud and fraud is a crime so I really would urge anyone who’s affected by doorstep crime, postal fraud or nuisance calls to report it.”

You can call the police on 101 or report fraud by speaking directly to the advisers at Action Fraud, the national fraud reporting centre, by phoning 0300 123 2040. They will also be able to give you help and advice about fraud and you can remain anonymous if you prefer.

UK-wide charity Action on Elder Abuse operates a confidential helpline on 080 8808 8141 which offers advice and support on all aspects of elder abuse.

Trading Standards also want to know about online fraud or mobile phone scams; any information you share may help them shut down fraudsters before others fall victim to them. You can report incidents, whether you’re a victim or have just been targeted, via the Citizen’s Advice Consumer Helpline on 0345 404 05 06.

You can sign up for Katy Bourne’s weekly newsletter at www.sussex-pcc.gov.uk/spcc-newsletter/ .You can also find out more about the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner’s Office on their website at www.sussex-pcc.gov.uk .

New Housing - Parish Council challenges District Council decision

Angmering Parish Council (APC) decided at their monthly meeting on Monday (16 January) to seek a judicial review in the High Court in London resulting from Arun District Council's (ADC) decision to approve two planning applications that were outwith with the Parish's Neighbourhood Plan - a legally binding document. ADC approved applications for a development of care apartments at Broadlees, between Dappers Lane and Water Lane, and nine houses in Arundel Road, allegedly without consulting Angmering's "made" Neighbourhood Plan.

APC is expecting to hear by 1 February whether the judical review will be agreed by the High Court and, if the case itself is succeccesful, it will provide a precedent for the approval of future UK planning cases. Parish Clerk, Rob Martin,stated that a barrister had been briefed on the situation and believed ADC’s decisions would be quashed if it went to a review.

APC also agreed on an increased parish precept for the forthcoming financial year which needs to take into account the High Court action which could cost APC £40,000 if the case is lost.  The new parish precept will rise by about £10 for most Band D Council Tax payers.

Monthly Charity Concerts

Something new is coming to Angmering!  Starting at the end of January, Monthly Charity Concerts are going to be held in Angmering Village Hall on the last Saturday of every month unless the Hall has been already booked for another function. Singers will cover a whole spectrum of differerent music genres including folk, country, blues, jazz, soft pop, and singer/songwriters.

Hosted by 'JusGeoff ' and Angie, "Spotlighting" will feature talent from near and far - local and some not so local performers collected from the many other clubs in the area. These will perform in 20-30 minute spots during the evening.  In between these spots will be "Introducing" sessions - a floor spot - where members of the audience will be able to get up on the stage and perform for say 2-3 minutes.

Tea shop celebrates 1st birthday!

I can't believe it's almost a year since Tea in the Square moved into the previous café premises in The Square and opened its vintage-style tea shop. But so well have Anne Marie and Helen - the lovely owners of the shop - integrated into the village that they could have been there many years.Their cakes have been gorgeous and their other food has been of a high quality. The warmth of their personalities and their fare has certainly brought something extra to our village centre.

To celebrate their 1st Birthday, Anne Marie and Helen are going to have a good old street party style knees up on Wednesday 25th January from 1pm and hope that you can help them celebrate their birthday. At 1.00pm,they will start serving cups of tea and finger food as a celebration and also as a thank you to all that have supported them over the past year. They will have entertainment starting at about 1.30pm from one of the ladies from "The Silhouettes" singing hits from the 1940s/1950's and they are hoping you will be able to sing along and have a really fun afternoon. You can visit The Silhouettes' website here. The tea shop will be open as normal from 10.00am to 1.00pm.

Congratulations to them also recently achieving a maximum "5"  food hygiene rating from Arun District Council - the first time this premises has achieved this maximum rating since a cafe was opened there some 14 years' ago.

Estate Agents close

After some 50 years' trading in the village centre, Holmes & Company, estate agents, has closed. The business has been aquired by Hawke & Metcalfe who have relocated it to their Rustington offices. The business was founded by Eric Holmes in the 1960s and he headed the business until his son, Jonathan, took over running the estate agents about 15 years' ago.  Jonathan will work for Hawke & Melcalfe on a consultative basis and it is pleasing to learn that two members of Holmes's staff have been retained and are now working in the Rustington offices.

From a historical point of view, Eric's first shop was where Angmering Parish Council is located today. In the early 1970s, the business moved to where the Maverick Hair Studio is situated, and later in the 1970s moved to its final location next to the Co-op. Eric was chairman of Angmering Parish Council between 1978 and 1980.

All enquiries on the new enlarged business should be addressed to Hawke & Metcalfe, 90 The Street, Rustington; Tel: 01903 850450: Email: sales@hawkemetcalfe.co.uk.

Community Land Trust
Confirmation had been received earlier in the day that a grant of £10,000 had been awarded towards further planning work for the scheme envisaged for the Mayflower Way site. This would enable full public consultation to take place, following which planning preapplication work could be undertaken.

[After lengthy discussion] On a proposal by Councillor Marsh, Seconded by Councillor Oldfield: That the Parish Council proceed with a view to bringing suitable legal proceedings, subject to Counsel’s advice – unanimously AGREED
 
On a proposal by Councillor Thompson, seconded by Councillor Jones: The Clerk be directed to take all necessary steps to pursue the matter as per the above without further reference to Council – unanimously AGREED.

2016/2017 Budget & Precept
The Chairman noted that the decision on budget and precept figure for 2017/18 could not be made before January 2017 as the position regarding legal action was not yet clear; the Parish Council’s reserves policy and the aspirations in the Neighbourhood Plan would be impacted by this.
 
On a proposal by Councillor Hill-Smith, seconded by Councillor Oldfield: That agreement of the 2017/2018 Budeget and Precept be deferred to the Parish Council’s meeting on 16 January 2017 – unanimously AGREED.

JEAAC Highways & Transport Meeting
- A259 route improvement scheme: detailed design work would commence in April 2017 and construction in April 2018.

- Angmering Traffic Management Scheme: this would proceed to formal consultation in early 2017.

- Yellow hatched boxes on the Station Road roundabout: these were unfortunately illegal in the absence of traffic lights there. A white KEEP CLEAR box would be put in instead.

- A259 cycleway surface disturbance: on investigation, this was due to mare’s tail weed coming up through the tarmac. This species of weed was similar to Japanese knotweed in terms of its effects. WSCC are going to destroy it, then resurface the cycleway.

- Rustington Golf Centre: some discussion took place with regard to the effects of the planned expansion on the roundabout. This would be taken up with planners.

The national chain - Tapi Carpets & Floors - will be taking up the final store in between Aldi and Next on the new Manor Retail Park on the A259. Tapi are calling it their Rustington store although it is actually in Angmering. They currently have over 50 stores open throughout the UK and propose opening a further 16 during 2017.

One of the services offered by Tapi is their "Mobile Showrooms" - i.e. vans that bring their full carpet and flooring collection to your home with specialist home consultants providing advice, free measuring and planning.
