ACCESS around a part of Lavant has been made easier thanks to the developers of a new housing scheme.

Two new parts of the Centurion Way foot and cycle path have been opened up as part of the Centurion Fields development, by Oakford Homes.

Chairman of Chichester Access Group, Barbara Teasdale said the opening of the new link made getting around for people a whole lot easier.

She said: “We are delighted with the new paths; it’s fantastic to see not just walkers or cyclists but parents with buggies and wheelchair users benefiting. It’s so much more convenient and safe.”

The new links were officially opened by West Sussex County Council’s cycling champion – Derek Whittington – and managing director of Oakford Homes, Chris Coates.
