Supermarket Volunteer gift cards

Along with priority delivery slots, shopping hours etc supermarket chains have developed a volunteer gift card scheme that allows volunteers to shop in store on behalf of residents.

It removes the need to pass cash between volunteers and those they are helping, which has been raised as an issue.

The resident does still need to access the website to load the gift card with funds but it may help if they can not get a delivery slot for a while.

Donít fall victim to a coronavirus scam

Here are some of the most common scams to look out for at the moment.

Be aware of people offering cures or vaccines for coronavirus. There is no specific treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19). Treatment aims to relieve the symptoms until you recover.

Home cleaning services. Be aware of false claims.
People impersonating healthcare workers, claiming to be offering home-testing for coronavirus.This is a scam and these kits are not currently available to buy.

Emails saying that you can get a refund on taxes, utilities, or similar are usually bogus and they are just after your personal and bank details.

There are lots of fake products available to buy online that say they can protect you or cure coronavirus. These will not help and are designed to take your money.

A27 Consultation Response

Council's formal decision re consultation process - A27 Arundel Bypass

It objected to the Magenta route. In response to the second question (B2) on the Consultation response form, the Council supported the Beige route, with the proviso that it carried a 40 mph speed limit and single carriageway and provided appropriate narrative under B5.

A27 ARUNDEL BYPASS - UPDATE ON PROGRESS

Progress report from Highways England (HE)

Following the preferred route announcement in May 2018, HE began carrying out studies and surveys of the preferred route and surrounding area to progress preliminary design for the A27 Arundel Bypass.

In doing so, they have discovered new and important information that could affect their decision around the most appropriate option for the improvement scheme.

So that they can ensure customers and communities are fully considered in the design and delivery of all road improvement schemes, they will be holding a further public consultation to ensure the option chosen is the best solution for the area, and this is planned for late 2019.

The HE team have expressed their commitment to deliver a fair and informative consultation, and shape a scheme that best delivers on the needs of the region.

Public Consultations are now taking place from 30 August to 24 October 2019.

UPDATE FEB 20 - Highways England has started an additional four-week period for people who responded to last yearís consultation on improving the A27 near Arundel to add to their responses. A letter dated 31/1/20 has been sent to those who responded to the 2019 Public Consultation and allowing the opportunity to change their decision if they feel it has been impacted by errors in the original documentation. The period for providing an update runs for four weeks from Monday 3 February 2020 to Sunday 1 March 2020.

ILLEGAL ENCAMPMENTS - WHAT TO DO

Now that the better weather has arrived gypsy and traveller activity will be on the increase.
The responsibility for taking enforcement action lies primarily with the owner of the land concerned and landowners are expected to take reasonable precautions to prevent encampments. In the first instance you need to identify whose land is being occupied so it is best to report your observations to Arun District Council so that the landowner can be identified and informed.
Gypsies and travellers seen at the side of the road or parked on the edge of the road are probably on West Sussex County Council land and you should advise the County Council accordingly.

Please click on the headline title to take you to the District Council's website for more detailed information and see the full story for the relevant contact details.
