ARUNDEL BYPASS WIDER ECONOMIC IMPACT SURVEY

17 September 2012

Parsons Brinckerhoff, on behalf of Arun District Council, West Sussex County Council and Horsham District Council is undertaking a study to examine the wider economic impacts of the Arundel bypass. This survey has been designed to gather information and views from local companies in the region to establish current operations and the extent these may change in the future if the A27 Arundel bypass was built.

Parsons Brinckerhoff, on behalf of Arun District Council, West Sussex County Council and Horsham District Council is undertaking a study to examine the wider economic impacts of the Arundel bypass.   This survey has been designed to gather information and views from local companies in the region to establish current operations and the extent these may change in the future if the A27 Arundel bypass was built.

If your business is located in or near Arundel, or relies on the A27 through Arundel to connect you to suppliers and customers or if your staff commute on it, we would be interested in hearing from you.

By filling in this survey, you will be providing the information we need to understand how the A27 at Arundel supports your business today and how its future will influence your choices about what investments you will make and how many people you will employ from the local economy.

For the purposes of this survey, respondents are asked to consider the benefits of having an A27 Arundel bypass - a two way dual carriageway, from west of Arundel, to the South and rejoining the A27 East of Arundel at the junction with the A284 at Crossbush.  There are not any more specific proposals at this stage.

Earlier studies have often overlooked the local economy impacts which are often cited as the key driver of the need for the scheme. The impacts we are keen to understand include potential jobs impacts (including jobs safeguarded), effects on visitor spending, changes in business to business activity, which are all potential spin-off impacts of the scheme.

The survey typically takes around ten minutes to complete and will remain open until Friday 28th September.
