Developers no longer need to carry out work

IMPROVEMENT works to crossroads in Oving will no longer have to be carried out by developers building homes in Felpham and Bersted.

Members of Arun District Council’s development and control committee agreed to remove two conditions placed on builders of the site six developments.

The planning condition for the Bersted site said the work would have to be carried out when 142 dwellings were occupied, for the Felpham site the figure was 49 but this was later upped to 142.

Planning officer Dan Vick told members who met last Wednesday: “The condition for the Felpham planning permission was similar to that of the Bersted permission in that they required a number of highway works to be carried out.

“One set of works was over at Oving, Chichester, this was because it was believed extra vehicles from the site would be using the surrounding roads and there would be a need to improve the road at various points.

“Following consultation with the Highways Agency, who are in charge of the A27, they believe the works to that junction in Oving are no longer required therefore the Highways Agency have agreed the improvements are no longer necessary.”
