August News from Pulborough Parish Council

Pulborough Brooks, West Sussex

Extracts from the draft minutes of the Planning & Services Committee meeting held on 5th July 2018.

Pulborough By Pass?

Cllr. Quested had forwarded a proposal to the Parish Office to be considered by the Committee. Cllr Quested had stated that it needs to be kept in mind, that should there be any further development in Pulborough, a by-pass  should  be  considered  north  to  south  along  the  A29.

After  some discussion Members thought this proposal should not be submitted at this time and will be discussed with Cllr. Quested at the August P&S meeting. It was felt that there would be an impact of issues having a by-pass in Pulborough and this doesn’t form any part of the Neighbourhood Plan.

Members discussed other schemes and agreed to submit the following:

  • Traffic calming in Link Lane & Glebelands.
  • Extend the 30mph speed limit further northwards on the A29.
  • Bus services to connect with key commuter train services.
