New objections have been raised to road proposals for the controversial New Monks Farm development next to Shoreham Airport.

As site work continues for the development of 600 homes and an IKEA store, a major re-think is being urged for the proposed new roundabout on the A27 and its link to Coombes Road.

Fresh objections have been raised by the South Downs National Park Authority and Bramber Parish Council, who both fear that the new access to Coombes Road will dramatically affect this narrow country lane and have serious negative effects on the usage, environment and landscape of the National Park.

The Park Authority claims that the proposal fails to meet important and legally-required conditions for roads in the South Downs area, and that proposals by the developers to limit the harmful effects are misplaced and inadequate. In its holding objection, the Authority gives a detailed list of how the roads proposal should be changed.

And in its own objection statement, the parish council outlines its concerns.
