"Doing nothing isn't an option" - Flooding on a busy road in Bognor needs attention

Photo from Chichester Observer - Cllr Matt Stanley still wants improvements to Bognor road.

It comes after Aldwick and Pagham residents were left "marooned" by flooding two weeks ago, after the heavy rainfall.

It's being reported that half a month's average rainfall fell in just one week in lower Bognor Road. It caused the road to become 'submerged by floodwater'. 

This has sparked fresh calls for road improvements from Matt Stanley, Arun District Council’s cabinet member for technical services.

The councillor said: “Residents of Aldwick and Pagham are being left marooned as the lower Bognor Road is submerged by floodwater in two places. I raised about the current state of lower Bognor Road back in September to the Conservative led West Sussex County Council who opted to do nothing.

He also said, 'doing nothing is not an option' as all the council were reportedly prepared to do is put up signs.

Matt Stanley also mentions how the usage of the road will increase if the 3,500 houses earmarked for West Bersted and Pagham get built.
