  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about the amount of litter observed along the A27 between Southwick Tunnel and Falmer. However litter responsibilities on A-roads under the terms of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 lie with Local Authorities, in this case Brighton & Hove City Council. They can be contacted at to report and understand how they manage their responsibilities. Acknowledging your concerns we will raise own own report to them.

    Kind regards

    Highways England

    State changed to: not the council's responsibility
