Arun Active Travel Study 2020
Arun District Council commissioned 2020 Consultancy Solutions Ltd to undertake an Active Travel Study for the district (not including those areas within the South Downs National Park).
Active Travel focuses on modes of transport which require physical activity, such as walking (including wheelchair use), cycling, horse-riding.
The aim of the study is to identify how active travel networks currently work in the district. The study identifies routes where visitors and residents of the district can walk and cycle to key destinations such as shops, leisure and places of work, as conveniently as possible, to reduce car use and improve health and wellbeing. It also identifies an approach to improve active travel networks in the district, connect missing links and make links where there is an identified deficit.
An online survey was made available, alongside the Active Travel Consultation leaflet [pdf] 699KB between 12 October 2020 and 23 November 2020. The aim of making the survey available was to gather as information from Arun’s residents regarding current use of Active Travel routes, as well as what residents would like to see in the future. Further stakeholder meetings were held, via video call, during that time, to gather responses from district councillors and town and parish councils as well as infrastructure providers. The results of this consultation exercise have been used as primary data to inform the overall Active Travel Study Report.
The consultation summary report can be viewed here: Arun Active Travel Consultation feedback report [pdf] 7MB
The final Active Travel Report 2020 [pdf] 31MB with final study appendices [pdf] 4MB were reported to the Planning Policy Committee on 1 June 2021 and agreed as a material consideration to inform development management decisions, sets out the five priority ATS routes in Arun together with the other assessed Active Travel Routes which will also inform future plan making.
Arun Local Plan Transport Mitigation Package – Evidence Base Updates (ADC/WSCC, 2019)
In 2019, the council commissioned technical work, with West Sussex County Council, to investigate two elements of the Arun Local Plan transport mitigation package in more detail. This included a more detailed design report focusing on the A259 junctions at Comet Corner and Oystercatcher; and an analysis of the impact of the Local Plan’s Strategic Housing Allocations on key junctions in the district. Consultants, WSP were commissioned to undertake the work, and the final reports are available below:

Stage 1 and 3 Reports and Appendices
Arun Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Study (November 2017)
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.

Arun Transport Model Phase 1 - Local Model Validation Report
The A259 Local Model Validation Report has recently been approved by National Highways and can be found here: Arun Transport Model-A259 and district-wide [pdf] 10MB.
This enables the model to be used on the basis that the whole district is within the calibrated/validated study area rather than just the A259 corridor between Chichester and Littlehampton (and parallel/connecting routes including A27/A284 and A29, B2233 and B2259). The base year model and reporting is now finalised. The budget for Phase 2 of the ATM has been approved for commissioning in 2023. However, until the pause to the Local Plan Update is lifted, the next phase of the work cannot be commenced. This can only take place when the pause is lifted and the visioning and scoping the Local Plan has been agreed by the council.
