11/09/13 Storrington Low Emissions Zone
Following on from the public exhibition of the Storrington Air Quality Action Plan in February, further technical assessments have been carried out and the possibility of a 'Low Emission Zone' is being looked at for the village of Storrington. Further assessments of the traffic management options have been undertaken by Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council in consultation with Sussex Police.The technical assessment identified the principle of a ' Low Emission Zone' (LEZ) as being the most feasible traffic management option when compared to 'gating' and a 'Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) ban'.Whilst feedback from the public consultation was strongly in support of a total HGV ban, this option is proving challenging for Horsham District Council's partners (at West Sussex County Council and Sussex Police) on enforcement grounds. For further details, please see full Press Release
