  • Thank you for your report about the build up of litter along the A27 at this location.

    However, under the Environmental Protection Act, responsibility for litter clearance on A-roads falls with Local Authorities. In this instance this would be Lewes District Council who can be contacted on 0800 023 7080 to report and understand how they manage their responsibilities.

    If you require any further update on this issue our Customer Contact Centre is available 24 hours a day at: • 0300 123 5000


    Kind regards Highways England
