New signage and road markings at one of the extended parking zones in Chichester

The areas affected by the CPZ extension works are: Donnington (new Zone A), Whyke (extension to existing Zone F), The Hornet (extension to existing Zone H), Little Breach (extension to existing Zone N), and Swanfield (new Zone S).

New waiting restrictions are also being introduced in various roads such as Lavant Road, Summersdale Road, St James Road, Oving Road and Florence Road.

West Sussex County Council said benefits would include: priority for residents and their visitors; less traffic congestion and pollution arising due to vehicles ‘searching’ for parking spaces in uncontrolled areas; and improved arrangements for Blue Badge holders in residential areas.

A full list of all the roads affected is given below.

West Sussex County Council said the new arrangements will become fully operational (with enforcement taking place) from June.

Penalty Charge Notices can be issued to vehicles parked incorrectly as soon as enforcement begins so motorists should make sure they understand the restrictions in place and have a permit to park if required.

The CPZ will be administered by Chichester District Council, which also oversees the enforcement of all on-street restrictions across the district on the County Council’s behalf.

The district council has set up new online systems to deal with new permit applications for residents in Zones A, F, H, N and S
