Issue details

Chichester Road Space Audit

Along with many towns and cities across the UK Chichester faces a number of challenges – it must accommodate significant new development, both residential and commercial, whilst preserving its historic character.  Parking is particularly problematic, with high demands and constraints in meeting supply in the area of greatest demand.  West Sussex County Council has appointed consultants (WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff) to consider the parking issues and use of road space in Chichester city to consider the challenges and consider how these might be affected by emerging strategies and plans in the area, along with consideration of the changing role of the high street.  The work undertaken will set the way for a strategic vision for on-street parking within the city.


This report to members will provide an update on the work undertaken so far and will request consideration of the proposals which are being put forward.
