The diagram opposite shows the proposed primary routes access points into the strategic allocation. The primary access into the site will be from:
A new junction onto the A259 in the north east of the site;
The provision of an additional arm on the A259/ North Bersted Bypass roundabout enlarging the junction into the allocation site.
An enlarged Lower Bognor Road / Chalcraft Lane roundabout in the south
Two secondary accesses will also be provided on to Chalcraft Lane to the south west of the cemetery. These will be designed as local residential accesses only and are not expected to accommodate significant volumes of cars/traffic.
The internal access route will be designed to accommodate two-way bus traffic with a 30 mph speed limit, with verges and footpaths on each side. This will provide an alternative road, pedestrian and cycle route to the A259 that avoids Chalcraft Lane and the B2258.
Discussions are underway with bus operators to extend local services along the internal spine road.
WALKING AND CYCLING
The proposed development will include a comprehensive network of walking and cycling routes that enhance the existing Public Right of Way and make connection with existing paths. A wellness/cycle/waking trail will link these and is expected to run around the perimeter of the main site.
The cycle and pedestrian routes will connect both east-west and north-south and will link into routes in the wider area to provide ease of access to the heart of Bognor Regis.
