Car

Although travelling sustainably all the time would be nice, we understand that some journeys are only practical if made by car. Travel planning is not an anti-car campaign. It is there to promote travel choices so that unnecessary car trips are minimised and congestion is reduced for those trips where a car is the only option. Here, we have included links for journey planning and traffic updates so that you can chose the most efficient route to get wherever you are going!

Liftshare

If you travel to work on your own, car sharing is a great way to cut your costs and get some company for your journey. Liftshare is a national organisation to help you to find people doing the same or a similar route as you. Just go to the West Sussex Carshare site, log in and let the site find you a suitable travelling companion.

Eco driving

Even when driving your car there are steps you can take to improve the efficiency of your journey. Smart driving or ‘eco driving’ can improve the environmental performance of your car and save you up to £220 a year in petrol and diesel.

Here are some links for information on how to be an ‘eco driver’.

Finding your way around Angmering

Welcome to Cresswell Park in Angmering, a charming and characterful village in West Sussex. The old village centre hosts a 12th century church along with many amenities, including independent boutiques, convenience stores, hair salons and several traditional pubs offering great food and hospitality. The village is easily accessible on foot or by bike or on the local bus services.

The beach is just 1.5 miles south of Creswell Park. Away from the coast, there is the South Downs national park and a local beauty spot, Highdown Hill, which is just a couple of miles north of Creswell Park.

All these places are easily accessible by public transport and by car so whatever leisure pursuit you are interested in, you are ideally placed to get there from Cresswell Park!

A note from your travel coordinator

This site is has been put in place to help you to identify and access more sustainable means of transport, whether for you to commute to work or just to explore your local area. We have pulled together all the local transport services to help you decide the best way to get around. We have also included some local walks and a link to the local cycling club.

We have included a travel survey that we would like you to complete when you are able. This will help us to understand your travel requirements and what we can do to help you make more sustainable choices. This survey will be repeated on the first, third and fifth anniversaries of you moving in to your new home, so that travel patterns can be monitored.
