Your views are important
The delayed A27 Chichester Bypass Public Consultation has finally been announced. The options presented have major consequences not only for the current 48,000 daily users of the bypass, but in particular for the similar numbers of residents across our wider area. You are urged to participate in determining the future of the bypass.
With the aim of bringing transparency, eight of the eleven parishes south of the A27 with some 30,000 residents either wrote directly to the Secretary of State, or encouraged their residents to do so, with a plea to allow everyone the opportunity to give their views on all the seven options as publicised earlier by the Chichester Observer. This was ignored without proper replies, and the two northern options have been dropped. We are thus presented with five southern options only.
