RESIDENTS of Felpham can have their say on proposed improvements to make their village safer.
West Sussex County Council has launched an online public consultation about possible changes to Limmer Lane and Vicarage Lane. The consultation began on Monday and lasts until October 28.
It can be seen at www.westsussex.gov.uk/felpham The suggested proposals are to: make it safer for pedestrians when walking in the street and more pleasant for motorists to drive; maintain flows of traffic through the village so local businesses do not miss out on trade: and keep the village identity of Felpham.
Residents can take a look at the plans at a public drop-in event on Monday, October 10. It takes place from 3-7pm at Felpham Memorial Village Hall in Vicarage Lane.
County council officers will be present to discuss the proposals and answer any questions. Felpham’s county councillor, Graham Jones, said: “It is important we have the backing of the community for whatever scheme we put into place.
“We want the community to engage with this and then we will be certain we have their support.”
Cllr John O’Brien, who is in charge of the county council’s highways, said: “Many suggestions have been put forward and the consultation is an opportunity to share your view about what you think of them.”
