Many thanks to the Mid Sussex Times for publishing this important article about road safety for our school children in Cuckfield. I am very pleased we have been successful in getting these two School Safety Zones, they have made a big difference, as will the new crossing in London Lane. I will continue to campaign for more safety measures to enable our children to walk, cycle and scooter to school.
am very concerned over the
increasing levels of traffic in Cuckfield and will continue to campaign
levels to preserve the special nature and heritage of Cuckfield
village. I have held a Cuckfield Traffic Forum which offered local people, organisations and businesses the opportunity to express their views on developing plans to manage the traffic and parking difficulties in Cuckfield. I have also written to Sussex Police asking them to enforce the 7.5 ton weight limit through the southern part of the village.
I have been continuing to press Crest Nicholson to complete the works that will bring the roads and other infrastructure that will enable WSCC to adopt the roads (and also Southern Water to adopt the waste pumping station). I recently held a meeting with WSCC Officers, Crest Nicholson and Southern Water and am optimistic we will soon be able to progress these matters to a conclusion.
