Decision details

Framework for managing planned events on West Sussex highways HI14 (19/20)

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


During the past few years West Sussex has seen an increase in events taking place on the highway across the county.  In order to realise the benefits from such events, the impacts on the community must be adequately considered and mitigated.  


A framework for co-ordinating and approving events on West Sussex highways has been developed and sets out a clear timeline and process for the approval of road closures to ensure it is consultative and transparent, whilst balancing the impacts versus the benefits.  It also sets out expectations in relation to how partners and event organisers communicate and co-ordinate to minimise any impact attributed to events.


The Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure has:


1.   approved the framework for managing planned events requiring road closures of West Sussex highways; and

2.   delegated authority to the Director of Highways, Transport and Planning, in consultation with the Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, to make any subsequent amendments to the framework.
