Damage to grass verges – community support needed for a Traffic Regulation Order Application (TRO) for double yellow lines at Roffey Corner.

Numerous local residents have alerted North Horsham Parish Council to their concerns about the damage being caused to the grass verge at Roffey Corner by parked cars. West Sussex County Council has advised that the best way to enforcedly deter parking is to apply for a TRO to paint double yellow lines on the road adjacent to the verges on Crawley Road from the bus shelter at Roffey Corner to the traffic lights. The aim is to prevent damage to the grass verge adjacent to the proposed double yellow lines. In addition, the TRO will reduce traffic congestion for commuters by increasing the capacity of the left turn only lane.

To achieve this, the Parish Council needs the support of local residents. You can do this by simply sending your name and address to: email –  committee.clerk@northhorsham-pc.gov.uk and stating that you support the application for a TRO at Roffey Corner or by calling – 01403 750786, for the duration of the Coronavirus outbreak, there will be the ability to leave a message.

Please contact us as soon as possible by the means above to be certain your support is included.

Site Update

Natta has begun works to Rusper Road south to install utilities and services to the site and the school and to widen Rusper Road for the A264 roundabout upgrade. 

Triconnex has been carrying out works along the A264 between Old Holbrook and Rusper Road to provide services and utilities to the site. 

Some additional works are required along the A264 during the closure of Rusper Road south. These works have been programmed to take place now to support the opening of the school, and to take advantage of the lighter traffic on the road due to the lockdown. You can read about these works here. 
Coming up
The second application for new homes on the site has now been submitted by Legal & General Homes for around 200 homes as part of Phase 1. 

The application for the pedestrian and cycle bridge over the A264 is now also available on Horsham District Council’s Planning Portal, along with several other infrastructure applications.
