West Sussex CC Highways

A meeting had been held with WSCC Highways with the following points noted:

  1. a) Malcolm Road (opposite the Co-op). Tangmere Parish Council will make a formal application for a dropped kerb and a tactile pavement at this location. This will be added to a holding list for when future funds are made available.
  2. b) Malcolm Road verge – WSCC is going to get this topped up with soil and re-profiled. Longer term if there is an issue, WSCC could possibly provide a double height kerb which should stop the erosion but will monitor the situation.
  3. c) Chichester Drive overgrown area. Some works had been carried out, there was no overhanging vegetation was below the required height and therefore is not considered to be a safety issue.
  4. d) Bus Shelter opp Aviation Museum – bollards can be installed in line with the front of the shelter but not further forward.
