  • Thank you for contacting Highways England about the amount of litter observed on the A23 slip road to the A27 at Patcham. However under the terms of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 litter responsibilities lie with local authorities, in this instance with Brighton and Hove City Council. They can be contacted at to report and understand how they manage their responsibilities. Acknowledging your concerns we will raise our own report to them. 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
