Local councils, businesses and MPs successfully launched the A27 Action Campaign on 26th June and they are calling on business people to take part in a survey to help build evidence for investment in the major road. Campaigners plan to present the Government with a robust case demonstrating the need for improving the A27 across West Sussex.

Louise Goldsmith, West Sussex County Council leader and A27 Action coordinator, said: “We want to attract businesses here. People want to stay. It’s a beautiful county and we’ve got everything, but we haven’t got a really decent A27 East to West.”

Speaking to local media, she said the government was currently assessing six road schemes including the A27 corridor and this is “the perfect time” to lobby for investment.

Campaigners would like to find out how the A27 impacts upon your business. To help build their case for Government you can take part in a short online survey at www.a27action.co.uk/
