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.
