Deepening concerns are being voiced over relentless local increases in traffic congestion and its resultant air pollution.
A local environmental group supported by the Shoreham Society is calling for urgent action and planning strategies to improve Shoreham’s air quality. With pollution soaring from increased traffic as more local housing is built, Adur Residents Environmental Action (AREA) has said Adur Council must hold developers to account in terms of their duty to mitigate environmental harm when building new housing developments.
In the meantime a Shoreham Area Sustainable Transport Study is continuing to explore how to achieve smarter traffic and transport management as the local population increases. The study is focusing on improving cycle and pedestrian facilities, encouraging best use of roads and achieving sustainable transport infrastructure.
