2 Atodiad

Mr Moore,

 

Thank you for your request for information about A27 Chichester Bypass
Improvement Scheme dated 31st August 2016. I am dealing with it under the
terms of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

This is because the information requested concerns measures and activities
affecting or likely to affect elements of the environment or affect
factors such as noise, pollution discharges and other releases into the
environment.

 

A copy of the information you requested is attached.

 

I should be clear that Highways England’s starting point for the
improvements on the A27 through Chichester are the longstanding proposals
for a series of junction upgrades along the existing bypass. This was
clearly laid out in the Government’s Road Investment Strategy and is
reflected in the budget available to Highways England for delivering the
project.

 

Highways England has only communicated other options insofar as to ensure
that the reasons for ruling them out in the past are still valid today,
and so that we can provide an up-to-date evidence base when we submit our
final proposals to the Planning Inspectorate.

 

The proposed A27 Chichester bypass improvements have their roots in online
improvements that were taken to consultation in 2004/05. Work on the
scheme was suspended following the Government’s 2010 spending review and
was re-introduced in the 2013 Autumn Statement. Work began on developing
the current scheme in 2013, and was subsequently incorporated in the Roads
Investment Strategy (RIS) in 2014 under ‘schemes committed subject to
other contributions – A27 Chichester Improvements - upgrades to four
junctions on the Chichester Bypass’.

 

The scope described within the RIS considered previous studies including
the outcomes from the previous consultation report in 2004/05, a report on
lower cost options prepared in 2009 and the 2013 Autumn Statement when it
was reintroduced.

 

The RIS was published in the same month as the Government’s National
Networks National Policy Statement, which strongly encourages the planning
of the Strategic Road Network to avoid National Parks, the Broads and
Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In this particular case the South
Downs National Park would fall into this category and be significantly
impacted for both the northern options.

 

When the project was restarted in 2013 the team reviewed work previously
completed, which confirmed the on line options development, but also
identified a public voice for the consideration of a northern bypass. The
project team undertook an early options assessment of both online and off
line options to the north and south of the existing bypass, including
seeking input from key stakeholders in developing options to take to
consultation. Those preliminary consultations included a wide range of
options, as we would normally do, as a way of developing and narrowing
down the range to be taken forward. At that stage it is never guaranteed
that any specific option will be taken through to consultation. The
assessment demonstrated that the northern bypass schemes raised a number
of significant environmental, heritage and social issues and were above
the allocated budget.

 

I am aware that there was considerable speculation about the potential
inclusion of a northern bypass following the preliminary consultations
with stakeholders late in 2015. Although it was made clear in stakeholder
meetings that northern bypass options were outside of the scope of the
RIS, I accept this raised the expectation about the opportunity to take
these forward, especially when the draft evaluation plans became of
interest to the media. We also accept that the northern options could have
been removed at an earlier stage to prevent this situation from
developing.

 

The project team ceased work on the northern bypass in accordance with
Highways England’s governance requirements once we had finally established
that they did not comply with the commitments defined in the RIS. The work
in developing these options will help to ensure that we demonstrate robust
consideration of alternatives when presenting our final plans to the
Planning Inspectorate.

 

The next stage for this project is that we will recommend a preferred
scheme to the Department for Transport once we have collated all feedback
received from the public consultation and have taken into account the
views given by you, West Sussex County Council, Chichester District
Council, other key stakeholders and members of the public during this
exercise.

 

The preferred route decision will reflect our continued assessments into
the scheme’s value, impact on traffic, the environment and its
affordability, as well as the views expressed via public consultation.

 

We will publish a full consultation report that will detail the
consultation methods, the feedback received and the responses when we
announce the preferred route. The preferred route will itself be the
subject of a further public consultation, and then independent scrutiny by
the Planning Inspectorate.

 

If you are unhappy with the decisions made by us in relation to your
request, you may ask for an internal review.
