STATEMENT OF REASONS FOR PROPOSING THE PEDESTRIAN CROSSING
West Sussex County Council proposes to install a signal-controlled crossing for
pedestrians and cyclists (toucan crossing) on London Road in Hassocks, immediately
north of its junction with Stanford Avenue.
Planning permission has been granted for the construction of 97 new homes on land to
the west of London Road in Hassocks. The planning consent specifies that to provide
safe pedestrian and cycle access to the new development the developer must install a
new toucan crossing at the site of an existing pedestrian traffic island immediately north
of Stanford Avenue.
The new crossing is therefore proposed to improve the amenity of the local area and to
provide safe access to the new development.
