Damage continues due to large lorries in Conservation Area

This is the result of damage caused by a brewery lorry backing down from North Pallant at the end of September.

When queried via our Twitter account about the lack of a protective bollard West Sussex Highways replied ‘The bollards that are currently in place are historical and unlikely to be replaced if damaged.¬†Bollard replacements are subject to prioritisation (Based on safety needs) and budgetary constraints. West Pallant junction does not provide enough footway space to install¬†a bollard and allow pedestrian access ie: pushchair, wheelchair users‘.

Some existing bollards are shown below:

The bollard at the top of Theatre Lane is at the exit end of a one way street, so lorries can’t back down and it is very unlikely that an exiting vehicle could damage the adjoining building.
