A259 Littlehampton Corridor CPO Confirmed by Secretary of State

Hugh Flanagan

The Secretary of State has confirmed the CPO for the A259 Littlehampton corridor road improvement scheme. The £25m scheme involves dualling a section of the A259 which runs through Littlehampton and surrounding areas on the south coast. The Inspector and Secretary of State agreed with West Sussex County Council, the acquiring authority, that the scheme was needed to improve journey times, reduce congestion and assist in realising development plan ambitions in terms of housing and employment growth for the area.

Hugh Flanagan acted for West Sussex County Council in the three day public inquiry, instructed by Laura Floodgate and Gail Rowley at the County Council.
