Chichester District Council Updates

Have your say on local cycling and walking routes
Chichester District Council is developing a plan to identify long term cycling and walking improvements in Chichester City centre and its links with adjoining parishes, and they'd like to hear your thoughts in a new public consultation. The ‘Chichester City Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan’ sets out ways in which travel routes in and around Chichester City can be made safer and easier for people who cycle and walk, including for those using wheelchairs, pushchairs and mobility scooters. To view a map of the plan area, the plan itself, and to share your views, simply visit:  before midnight on 19 October.
‘Let’s Talk: Climate Change’ consultation launched

In January this year, Chichester District Council took a key step forward in the fight against climate change by officially adopting an initial Climate Emergency Action Plan, which set out a carbon reduction target of 10% year-on-year until 2025 for the Chichester District. The plan has now been developed to set out proposals on how this can be achieved, and the council is keen to hear people’s views.
