Highways England, responsible for building and maintaining the trunk road network, are consulting on options for a new Arundel bypass. All three of the options now being considered will impact on the national park. Media coverage has been distorted by errors in Highways England’s press release which referred to one option (“Opion 5A”) passing “between the national park and ancient woodland” when in fact it passes through both the national park and ancient woodland as well as the village of Binsted. HE agreed to change their press release after the Society pointed out the error. The Society and other environmental organisations have supported local residents in their struggle to protect this beautiful part of the national park and its special qualities.
Join us this Sunday 8 October to walk the route of the infamous Option 5A, show your support for the villagers of Binsted and the strength of your feelings for the national park.
The walk begins at 1 pm on Sunday at the Flint Barn, Binsted BN18 0LL
