Brighton Excelsior and VC Jubilee's regular activities will be severely affected if the proposed Monks Farm development goes through. We urge you to take 10 minutes to object to the proposals, there are instructions below. For clarification, when our Saturday and Sunday rides set off from Shoreham we currently have a safe crossing to Coombes Lane so we can head north or climb The Downs behind Lancing College. With the new plans in place, our riders would have to ride about 1km on the dual-carriageway and negotiate a roundabout. We don't think this is an acceptable situation for our members or for any other cyclists in the area.
Please do this straight away as the window for objections closes on 29th September

4. Here is a suggested comment which you can use or edit
"I object to the proposed closure of the crossing over the A27 at the Sussex Pad junction from the Old Shoreham Road to Coombes Road for cyclists and other non-car users. My child regularly uses this crossing when riding with VC Jubilee, which is one the of the South's most successful youth cycling clubs, based in Shoreham. If the existing crossing is removed, it must be replaced by a bridge or underpass providing a safe, direct crossing over the A27 from the Old Shoreham Road to Coombes Road for cyclists and others."
