The Westhampett parking proposals will be explained by WSCC staff at a public meeting
to be held at The March C of E School on
6th March 2019 from 6pm - 8pm.
WSCC are seeking opinions in regard to on-street parking in Chichester city and surrounds.
Proposals for tackling growing pressure on on-street parking in Chichester will be put forward for consultation soon.
Feedback on the city-wide Parking Management Plan is being encouraged, with an online consultation going live from Friday 1 March and four drop-in exhibitions arranged.
Roger Elkins, Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure, said: “With new housing, plus business and retail expansion in the Chichester area, parking problems will only intensify. They could have an increasing impact in areas that currently have no parking restrictions, which is why we want to be proactive and plan now, rather than wait and be forced to react when it’s too late.
“We also want to take a holistic, city-wide approach to parking, and not simply move a problem from one area and create a new one elsewhere.”
The proposed Parking Management Plan will enable all residents, businesses and other stakeholders to get a much clearer picture of current parking capacity and the different parking demands.
Roger added: “I would urge people to please take the time and trouble to respond to our consultation and let us know what they think.”
Details of the proposals including the designs, maps and FAQs will be available via the council’s on-line consultation hub from Friday 1 March and include a questionnaire to aid responses.
