Dear West Sussex County Council,

Please let me have a copy of carbon emission data associated with the whole life cycle of materials, energy use and construction of the following roads:
1. A284 Lyminster Bypass
2. A259 Bognor Regis to Littlehampton Enhancement

This is sometimes referred to as “embodied carbon”.
For the avoidance of doubt this is not a request for carbon emissions data directly related to the use of the road by all kinds of vehicles over the 60 year assessment period.

Please let me know if these assessments of carbon were carried out following guidance contained in PAS2080 Carbon Management in Infrastructure and which organisation or consultancy /consultancies carried out the assessment.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Kris Welch

Dear MsWelch,

Our Ref: FOI/1853

On 21/12/2020 you made the following request for information, which has
been dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000/.

Freedom of Information request - Embodied carbon in road building

We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority does not hold data relevant to your request.

 

I am writing to advise you that following a search of our paper and
electronic records, I have established that the information you requested
is not held by this Authority.

The A284 Lyminster Bypass is 2 separate schemes. The A284 Lyminster Bypass
(North) is at design stage and this information is not currently held.
Planning Documents are available at
[1]https://westsussex.planning-register.co.... under reference
WSCC/049/18/LY.

West Sussex County Council does not hold this information for the
Lyminster Bypass (South). It is under construction by a private developer.

The A259 Bognor Regis to Littlehampton Enhancement is not at a position
where materials have been identified; at this early stage of development
the information is not yet available to conduct a scheme-specific carbon
assessment.
