M23 Resurfacing

I am writing to advise that A-one+ on behalf of Highways England will be carrying out resurfacing Northbound on the M23 between junctions 10 (Copthorne) and 9 (Gatwick). 

In order to carry out these works as efficiently and as safely as possible, work will be undertaken whilst we facilitate 4 FULL weekend closures of the London bound carriageway on the M23, between 10pm on Friday evening to 4am on Monday morning.

These weekend closures are unavoidable due to the nature and scale of the work involved.

Series of full closures on main carriageway

Dates and timings

M23 Junction 10 to Junction 9 London Bound

Friday 12 January 10pm – morning of Monday 15 Jan 4am

Friday 19 January 10pm – morning of Monday 22 Jan 4am

Friday 26 Jan 10pm – morning of Monday 29 Jan 4am

Friday 2 Feb 10pm – morning of Monday 5 Feb 4am

Diversions: A clearly signed diversion will be in place during all closures utilising local routes, suitable for all types of vehicles when full closures of the carriageway are in place.

Northbound traffic for Gatwick Airport will exit at Junction 10 and take the A2011 Crawley Avenue to the A23 London Road to reach Airport Way and access the North Terminal roundabout and follow the signposted route to the South Terminal.

Northbound traffic for the M25 will exit at Junction 10 and follow the A264 through Copthorne, turning left (northbound) onto the A22 at the traffic lights at Felbridge. Traffic will continue northbound on the A22 through New Chapel, Blindley Heath and South Godstone, reaching the M25 at the Junction 6 Godstone Interchange.

Notice of Public Rights & Publication of Unaudited Annual Return 



Sussex Police continues to recruit to its new-formed ‘Sussex Police People’s Voice’; a group who represent people’s views in Sussex.

You can be part of this important group which give their views and opinions on policing by taking part in anonymous electronic surveys up to four times a year. This is an extra way we will collect feedback as well as continuing to use our telephone, postal and face to face consultations. For example, we would like to hear about people’s experiences as victims of crime.

We are appealing to those from a range of backgrounds to take part in this new initiative as it’s vital we have voices which reflects the diversity of the county we serve. The group is the first of its kind in the force and has been created at a time when we are undergoing significant change. Getting involved is an opportunity for people to help shape the future of the force. Members will give feedback on subjects ranging from visibility of the police in their communities, to their opinions around how well we are doing and concerns around policing in their local areas.

A summary of results of every survey will be published on our website, available first to group members, along with the detail of how the results will influence our plans and priorities. The first survey is due to be sent out to all members this week.

In the past Sussex Police has used feedback through surveys to identify priorities within communities, understand the impact on victims of anti-social behaviour and improve the experience that people have when they report crime and incidents to the force. To be one of the voices in the group all your need to do is spend around 20 minutes completing an anonymous online survey up to four times a year. If you can spare a small amount of your time each year and want to make a difference then join up through our website.





                      Mid Sussex car parks retain Park Mark Awards

Local people and visitors can feel safe and secure parking in Mid Sussex after seventeen Council run car parks retained the prestigious Police ‘Park Mark’ award for crime prevention and safety.

The British Parking Association, on behalf of Sussex Police, recently assessed the award-winning car parks. All 17 of the car parks have been recognised as examples of excellent parking design and will proudly display the Park Mark sign of quality for the next 12 months.
Park Mark car parks have clear directional signage and use traffic flow techniques like one-way circulation so drivers are not confused about which way to go. Pedestrian access and exit points are clearly indicated and painted paths highlight the safest places to walk.
Park Mark car parks have lower levels of crime and reduce the fear of crime because they have measures in place to deter offenders, such as perimeter fencing, surveillance and bright lighting. They are also clean and well-kept to reassure drivers they are in a safer environment. Litter and graffiti are quickly removed in order to deter further vandalism and criminal damage.
“Mid Sussex is already a low crime area but we’re committed to doing everything we can to deter crime and make residents feel safe,” said Councillor Gary Marsh, Cabinet Member for Service Delivery. “Park Mark car parks offer a safe and welcoming environment for local drivers and visitors to the area and I’m delighted that 17 of our car parks have met the standard again this year.”
The ‘Park Mark’ is part of the UK Police flagship initiative ‘Secured by Design’ that promotes crime reduction through effective design and security standards in public buildings, roadways, footpaths and car parks as well as private houses.
