Consultation for High Street loading time restrictions

We are proposing to introduce vehicle restrictions on High Street and Clifton Road. The restrictions would cover the High Street from Fantasy Games (43 High Street, formerly WH Smith) to Molica Franklin (69 High Street) and Clifton Road to the junction with Arcade Road.

We propose to introduce restrictions between 10am and 10pm to keep the High Street free of vehicles to improve safety and encourage pedestrian activity.

This would mean that vehicles would only have access to this part of High Street and Clifton Road from 10pm until 10am to make deliveries. Currently, there are not any time restrictions in place so vehicle loading can occur at any time of day.

A verbal consultation will be carried out with traders to seek their views. If the consultation concludes that traders are in favour of imposing new loading time restrictions, we will apply to West Sussex Highways for a Traffic Regulation Order. It will then be up to them to decide whether the changes are introduced.
