Down in East Sussex, after an intervention by the local anti-roads group, Combe Haven Defenders, in mid-January, Rother council suddenly postponed consideration of a planning application for a proposed one-and-a-half-mile North Bexhill access road that would add to the length of the Bexhill-Hastings link road.

Hastings council, meanwhile, has approved a planning application for the second time for the ‘Queensway gateway’ road at the Hastings end of the link road.

The council were forced to withdraw the first permission they gave by legal action brought by PN’s Gabriel Carlyle.

The data showed that the road, if built, would cause serious breaches of air pollution legislation.
