Closure of the A259 East Bound Carrriageway 

Latest - Due to unforeseen circumstances these works were unable to take place on 11 May they will now be taking place on Monday 18th May, outside of peak times.

BHCC have informed the Parish Council of an application to close the Eastbound carriageway of the A259 and suspend the Westbound Bus Lane of Marine Drive, outside no.113 for approximately 50 metres on the 11th May 2020 to carry out remedial works to the vehicle crossover at no.113 whilst traffic flows are reduced during Covid-19 lockdown. 

BHCC will suspend the westbound bus lane on Marine Drive, Rottingdean to allow westbound traffic to use it, whilst eastbound traffic use the general westbound running lane, as works take place in the eastbound normal running lane, and therefore enabling two-way traffic to flow.

As the traffic has greatly reduced during the Covid-19 lockdown, BHCC do not anticipate this causing any significant traffic issues.

Harold Williams

We are sorry to let you know that former Parish Councillor and local resident Harold Williams died on Thursday 19 March after a short illness. Harold lived in the village for many years and along with his wife Valerie, was very active in the community. He organised the Village Fair Cavalcade for many years and was also very involved with the organisation of the fairs. He chaired the Rottingdean Business and Trade Association and co-ordinated Rottingdean Village in Bloom for a number of years, during which time the group won numerous awards. He was one of the founder organisers of Rottingdean Village News, he raised funds through the 200 Club and campaigned tirelessly for access arrangements in the village. More recently he founded our local tourism initiative, Visit Rottingdean.

Harold was a warm and generous man brimming over with energy and ideas. He will be missed. Our thoughts are with, Valerie, his family and his friends at this especially difficult time.

Traffic Monitoring 
0n 31 October 2017 a study of Traffic travelling eastward from Brighton by East Sussex Traffic Monitoring Unit, was commissioned by the Parish Council.

The results tell us that at peak times the queue from Brighton towards Rottingdean stretches beyond Greenways roundabout past the speed camera towards  Roedean holding on average, in the busy period, 342 vehicles.  Such lengthy queues impact on more than just the congestion on the A259 but also affects the flow in the High Street and has a knock on impact in the AQMA. The Parish Council continues to work with BHCC to seek ways to improve matters. Data can be viewed here .
