Date set for summit on Chichester’s 20mph speed limit

WITH consultation planned for later this year on the idea of a city-wide 20mph speed limit in Chichester, a public meeting is being organised on Thursday, July 12.

It will be held by the 20’s Plenty for Chichester campaign at St George’s Centenary Centre, in Cleveland Road, at 8pm.

West Sussex County Council is due to carry out the consultation during September on a 20mph limit in residential areas of the city, excluding A and B roads.

A statement issued by 20’s Plenty this week said the campaign had now been tasked with producing even more evidence of widespread public support for the change and was therefore keen to mobilize as many supporters as possible in the next few months.

The statement said tt was campaigning for 20mph limits because it believed they were safer than 30mph on residential roads, and cost effective, compared with expensive speed humps.
