Subject: Subject: A27 Arundel Bypass Scheme update
I am writing to let you know that we have chosen to carry out a further non-statutory consultation for the A27 Arundel Bypass scheme.
This consultation, which is planned for spring 2019, will give local people a fresh look at all the viable options for upgrading the A27 using the latest available information.
Why we’ve chosen to conduct further consultation
An earlier consultation led to a preferred route, known as Option 5a, being announced in May. Since then, as part of Highways England’s work to develop the scheme for submission of a planning application, important new evidence is available which merits putting the plans to the public again. This new information includes a redesign of the western end of the scheme where it re-joins the existing A27, updated traffic modelling results and updated data on and enhancements of the alternative Options 1 and 3.
This further round of consultation will give people an opportunity to comment on all matters presented at the previous consultation in 2017 and the new information available. It will allow consultees to comment on all three route options previously consulted upon: Option 1, Option 3 and Option 5a.
Following the further consultation, Highways England will consider the responses, alongside all other relevant evidence in order to determine the next steps for the project, including examination of the information gained against the preferred route and the alternative options.
We will be in touch nearer the time with more information about the further consultation. In the meantime, you can keep up-to-date with the project by visiting our website.
