Maria Caulfield February Update

As your local MP and Chair of the A27 Reference Group, I wanted to update you on further developments concerning the A27 consultation.

As you may be aware, proposals to improve the safety of junctions along the stretch of the A27 from Lewes to Polegate were presented at a number of public meetings before Christmas. This stretch of road has been an accident blackspot for many years. While the outcome of these consultations has resulted in proposals that will improve safety and reduce congestion, they are only a short term fix.

This is why the A27 Reference Group – which is made up of MP’s, Council Chief Executives and County, District and Borough Council Leaders from across the County of East Sussex – are looking to put in a bid for £400 million in order to dual the road, allowing the current road to become a local access road and providing the long term solution that is needed. This will be going into central government shortly.

I am making sure that Selmeston’ s concerns are considered in the development of this project and that resident’s get the best deal possible. The consultation has now closed, but if you have any comments or suggestions then please do not hesitate to get in touch.


As your local Member of Parliament I try to be as accessible as possible to residents.

I hold regular advice surgeries across the constituency. If you would like an appointment to discuss an issue or concern please do not hesitate to contact me.

Whatever your concern, please get in touch.
