HE complete Feasibility Study of Chemroute

Highways England has completed the feasibility study for the Chemroute - linking Chichester and Emsworth.  The report is now shared with WSCC and CDC - their officers are ploughing through the 300+ pages...   I (Geoff ) have been in touch with Jason Hones (the contact at HE) to ask that I, on behalf of the WSCF, and Ian Sumnall/Ian Swann of the CDCF, have an early sight so that we can comment before it's shared with stakeholders.   His promise to involve us is quite genuine but not at this stage.

But the good news is that the feasibility is done and HE's Designated Funds have had a boost in the Budget.   Ian Sumnall and Ian Swann will be writing to the local MP Gillian Keegan and to the Minister, Grant Shapps requesting that priority is given to the scheme.
