Decision details

Haywards Heath - Wealden Way and Lucastes Lane - Proposed Traffic Regulation Orders HT11 (21/22)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


At its meeting of the 29 November 2016, the then Central Mid Sussex County Local Committee (CLC) was presented a report on Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) prioritisation.


Proposals for Wealden Way, Climping Close and Lucastes Lane were considered and approved at that meeting for inclusion in the works programme. Subsequently these roads fell within an area which was the subject of a wider ranging review of parking within the Haywards Heath area and postponed pending its outcome. Subsequently the decision was taken not to progress the wider scheme and the proposals were therefore resurrected


During the formal consultation stage, 46 objections were received,  together with 1 individual letter of support and 1 letter of qualified support.


The comments made by the residents were reviewed by the Local Member for Cuckfield and Lucastes (Cllr Bradbury). Given the overall lack of support for the proposals, Cllr Bradbury has agreed that the programme should not proceed and additional consideration should be given once further work has been done on local parking strategy, when local residents’ views will be taken into account.



The Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, having considered that the concerns raised by the objectors outweigh the possible benefits to the community, has agreed that the proposed Traffic Regulation Order should be withdrawn.
