On the 18th June 2015 we presented the SRA Traffic Petition to B&HCC Economic Development and Culture Committee.
The petition was started as a response to the potential threat of 100's of new homes being built on the urban fringe of Saltdean and neighbouring areas.
The overloaded roads surrounding Saltdean are already affecting the lives of the Residents of Saltdean. We obtained 727 signatures to the petition which is part of a long campaign. We are now working with our neighbours in Rottingdean and Ovingdean, you can follow their campaigns on their websites S.A.F.E Save St Aubyns Field Evergreen
Reasons for concern
Access in and out of Saltdean is restricted and limited by the Sea and A259 to the South and the South Downs National Park in the East, West and North. The A259 and B2123 (through Rottingdean to A27) are inadequate and congested at peak times and in the all summer tourist season. The redevelopment of Saltdean Lido and Saltdean Primary School will impact on travel to and from Saltdean and its surrounds.
Major developments in Peacehaven, Newhaven and Seaford also heavily impact on Saltdean and its surrounds. Piecemeal developments do not collate and consider the wider and cumulative effects on the roads.
