Enterprise Bognor Regis - Highway Infrastructure Viability Study - Study 2 (2014)

A study to inform the preparation of a Local Development Order (LDO) being prepared to support the delivery of the Strategic Employment Allocation at Enterprise Bognor Regis (EBR). Located, north of the Bognor Regis urban area, EBR encompasses  land, bounded by the Bognor Regis Relief Road (BRRR), Bognor Regis Golf course, Felpham Community College and the existing industrial area on Shripney Road. The EBR area is also bisected north-south by the Bognor Regis branch railway line and Lidsey Rife.

The overarching aims of the study are to:

  1. Assess the impact on existing transport infrastructure of future traffic generated by the Oldlands Farm, Salt Box and Rowan Caravan Park development sites in order to inform the preparation, and become part of the supporting evidence base for the LDO; and
  2. Establish the feasibility, viability and deliverability of a new road (referred to in this report as the ‘North/South’ Link Road), which would provide access between the former LEC Airfield and the existing highway network

Arun Transport Study: Waste Site Allocation Transport Addendum - Final Report - Study 3 (2014)

A study to identify the impacts on the existing transport infrastructure from two strategic waste sites allocated in the emerging West Sussex Waste Local Plan (prepared by West Sussex County Council – WSCC in partnership with the South Downs National Park Authority – SDNPA) and a recent planning permission for one of these sites.

As part of the evidence base for the Arun Local Plan, the ‘Arun Transport Study for Strategic Development – Options and Sustainable Transport Measures’ was prepared in March 2013 by consultants WSP. The study included an assessment of strategic development locations within the District and identified the impact of these development options on committed transport infrastructure and public transport services. Where required, appropriate mitigation measures were then identified to minimise these impacts.

Proposals for the allocation of two strategic waste sites in Arun DC, at Hobbs Barn and Ford, were not included in the Arun Transport Study. However, in June 2013 WSCC undertook a junction sensitivity test of the A259 Crookthorn Lane/Church Lane roundabout at Climping to assess additional HGV generation at these sites with the Arun DC Local Plan forecast flows. The test concluded that the likely impact on future capacity would be relatively minor and that the proposed mitigation set out in the Arun Transport Study, to widen the westbound A259 approach, would satisfactorily address any residual cumulative impacts.

This study, commissioned by Arun DC, builds on the work already carried out and to provide further technical evidence to assess two Waste Management Facility sites, as
identified in the emerging West Sussex Waste Local Plan. As such the outcomes of this study should be read as an addendum to the 2013 Arun Transport Study.

A29 Realignment Feasibility Study (July 2014)

This study builds on previous studies which investigated route options and the viability of the realignment of the A29. The study, prepared by SYSTRA Ltd considers in greater detail the realigned route with northern and southern tie-in options. It includes highway designs; an environmental appraisal; transport assessment and a financial viability and delivery plan.

A27 Junction Capacity Modelling - October 2010

In June 2010 Mott MacDonald was commissioned by Arun District Council to undertake a capacity assessment of a number of junctions on the A27. The purpose of the capacity assessment was to evaluate eight future scenarios in terms of their impact on the road network at the following junctions:

• A27/B2233 priority junction
• A29/A27 roundabout and the A29/A27/Fontwell Avenue roundabout
• A27/A284 Crossbush signalised gyratory.

Arun District Strategic Transport Study 2006

The following study has been commissioned to provide background information relating to Transport.

Consultants MVA were commissioned by the Council to carry out transport modelling work to assess the potential impact on the highways network of housing and other development which may be required in Arun District over the period to 2026.  The study examined several possible scenarios involving major new housing development in one or more locations.

Two separate reports were produced which are available for download below.  Please note that the full reports contain detailed technical information.

These reports does not constitute Arun District Council policy, but will form part of the evidence base used in preparing the emerging Local Development Framework, and its constituent development plan documents

The Strategic Transport Study Main Report examined 5 separate scenarios involving development on greenfield land, please find report below:

Strategic Transport Study Main Report: Summary

Strategic Transport Study Main Report: Full Report

Strategic Transport Study Main Report: Appendices

The Strategic Transport Study Additional Scenarios report examined a further scenario involving major brownfield development in central Bognor Regis, both on its own and in combination with each of the five scenarios considered in the main report:
