Dear West Sussex County Council,

In a decision notice released today you have allocated an additional £10 million of funding for the A259 widening works Angmering to Littlehampton.

The decision notice lists various budget headings where additional funding has been sourced. For each heading I would like to know what will NOT be done as a result of funding being moved to this scheme. For additional funding identified from S106 I would like to know for what purpose was the funding which is now being made available for this scheme originally proposed to be used for and which development schemes are making contributions and how much from each?

Yours faithfully,

Derrick Chester

If for any reason the Council needs to extend this timescale you will be notified in accordance with the relevant legislation.

Please note that in 2012 the County Council adopted a position in principle that FoI and EIR requests to West Sussex County Council and the Council's responses may be published on the Council's website in a suitably anonymised form. This is in addition to the individual response to the requestor, and in line with the Council's commitment to transparency and open data.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Chester

 

I refer to your request dated 30 July 2019 which has been dealt with under
the Environmental Information Regulations.

 

Your request was for:

 

In a decision notice released today you have allocated an additional £10
million of funding for the A259 widening works Angmering to
Littlehampton. 

 

The decision notice lists various budget headings where additional funding
has been sourced. For each heading I would like to know what will NOT be
done as a result of funding being moved to this scheme. For additional
funding identified from S106 I would like to know for what purpose was the
funding which is now  being made available for this scheme originally
proposed to be used for and which development schemes are making
contributions and how much from each?

 

We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority holds some data relevant to your request.

 

For each budget heading in the decision report, what will not be done as a
result of funding being moved to this scheme.

The response to that question is shown in the table below:

 

Budget Heading: Amount What is not being done as a result
Highways Maintenance Budget £2m There is no identified scheme that
‘will not be done as a result of
funding being moved’. This funding is
contributing to the maintenance
defects of the A259 which this budget
would have funded in any event,
therefore over a 10 year period there
is not an identified named scheme that
is not happening.
H&T Major project Programme £4.843m There is no identified scheme that
‘will not be done as a result of
funding being moved’.  The major
projects programme consists of
projects with a value in excess of
£130m and is subject to several (and
ongoing) funding bids to central
government. Funding bids free up
capital allocation to contribute to
the A259, in the event that none of
these bids are successful, the budget
will be supplemented through
management of the rolling Highways,
Transport and Planning Programme.

 

You also asked about the additional funding identified from S106, in terms
of its proposed use in the original planning application, which
development schemes are making contributions and how much from each?

 

S106 funding for this scheme has only been identified from sources whereby
the intention was always they contribute to the A259 widening project.
However, planning agreements are written to allow the Authority a degree
of flexibility in the event circumstances change.

 

The detailed answer to this question is below, which has been provided in
tabular form for clarity.
