Responded Tue 24 January 2023
I would like information about your council's planning in relation to climate action for the Council Climate Action Scorecards. This information is most likely to be held by a planning officer or similar.
In particular, please supply me with information relating to the following questions:
1. Has the Council approved any new* or expanded** roads or road junctions in its area from 1st January 2019 until 1st January 2023? Please list which ones were accepted.
* The intention of this question is to understand overall increases in road capacity, rather than recent housing developments. Please exclude minor roads built exclusively to connect new housing to the pre-existing road network.
** An expanded road or road junction is one that has increased capacity for motor vehicle traffic, not counting bus lanes, cycle infrastructure, or pedestrian infrastructure. Please include roads and junctions where new lanes have been added.
2. Has the council approved any new or expanded airport runways, terminals, measures to increase passenger numbers or other planning proposals that expand airport capacity in its area since 1st January 2019 until 1st January 2023? Please list which ones were accepted.
1. All alterations to junctions that were approved as part of a planning permission can be found using the public access system on our website via the following link:
All other road network alterations would be carried out by East Sussex County Council Highways team which is responsible for all aspects of roads and footpaths:
2. Information not held.
