Architect David Kemp is among a number of local businesses and residents calling for more substantial work on the bridge which has fallen into “an appalling condition”.

The council’s plans for a new Waste & Minerals Site have been adopted (February 2017). They have allocated a nearby site at Sussex House Industrial Area and noted the following:
“Sackville Road and part of Old Shoreham Road, which are in close proximity to the site, are part of the Brighton, Portslade and Rottingdean 2013 AQMA. Waste management uses may not have a materially different effect on the AQMA compared to other industrial uses. However, proposals should consider the potential for issues relating to air quality, including those relating East Sussex, South Downs and Brighton & Hove Waste and Minerals Sites Plan – Schedule of Suitable Industrial Estates (Adopted February 2017) to vehicle movements, which may affect air quality. Operators may also wish to consider entering into routing agreements. Where appropriate, suitable mitigation should be provided.”
