You may have heard that a large new housing estate is planned on the north west of Chichester. The permission is not yet granted though the process is advanced. We have a chance to influence the cycling content of their development. It was understood that the developer would provide cycling routes to the city. So far what they have put forward does not offer any improvements to cycling infrastructure of any real consequence. This is a pity since the land is beside the Centurion Way and the route in would be along a stretch that is the Chemroute project.
We therefore welcome your comments about the issue. You may wish to post here, come to the next forum, or write into West Sussex County Council directly. If doing so, please mention Chemroute and that we are looking for proper cycling provision along Westgate and West Street, not what is currently being offered.
