New & Improved Roads – Part 1 Compensation
In our local area there are a number of significant road improvement and road building works taking place. These include road works to the A259 in the Angmering, Rustington and Littlehampton area and the Fitzalan Road link in Littlehampton. There will also be major works taking place in the future with the planned improvement of the A27 at Arundel.
People who live close by to a road where there are significant works being undertaken may be entitled to compensation in addition to those people who receive compensation because of compulsory purchase.
At Julian Wilkins & Co Chartered Surveyors we can assist in undertaking the proper valuation work and negotiation with West Sussex County Council to ensure appropriate compensation is paid to those affected by significant road schemes in the local area including the Fitzalan Road link and the A259.
Part 1 of the 1973 Land Compensation Act details physical factors (including fumes, artificial light, noise, vibration and smell) that can cause the value of a property to be reduced. In such cases compensation can be payable.
West Sussex County Council are bound to bear professional costs in the pursuit of a justifiable claim. This means that if we help you by undertaking your valuation work, you will not have to pay our fees. This does not affect the compensation you will be owed.
If you think you may be entitled to Part 1 compensation due to a road scheme such as the A259 or Fitzalan link road improvements and you would like more information then please call or email us.
