On 15th July almost 250 people turned out to demonstrate (see pic below) and the story featured on the news, it's not enough though so please help.
Please email Adur and Worthing Councils before 18 July –
SUBJECT: Objection to planning application: AWDM/0961/17 Land West of New Monks Farm, Mash Barn Lane, Lancing, West Sussex
Use your own words to say:
- The Sussex Pad crossing is well used. On 30th June - 1st July 2018 we counted nearly 900 cycles using this much-loved route into the South Downs.
- The proposed alternative – a new bridleway in the National Park and upgrading the footpath alongside the River Adur would be far too narrow to cope with the large groups of cyclists and walkers who currently use the Sussex Pad crossing plus existing users of the footpath. The plans show an effective path width of only 2m alongside the Adur which is far too narrow to be attractive, let alone safe. An effective path width of at least 4m is required.
- Remember to give your full name and postal address.
Add anything else you want to add such as the surface needs to be suitable for road bikes, a grade-separated junction at Sussex Pad would be better, etc.
If you live in the area, copy your objection to your local councillors; look them up at:
Thanks for your support!
