LETTER: Café is the jewel of Chichester

Shocked to hear about the council’s attempt to destroy the jewel of Chichester and Priory Park.

Your Say

LETTER: Underpasses are impossible

Underpasses are notorious for their susceptibility to flooding, even in areas well above sea level where drainage is not normally a problem, as illustrated by this week’s heavy rains further north.

Your Say

LETTER: Condemned by lack of action

In my opinion West Sussex County Council have totally failed in their ability to manage the benefits that would have accrued to the Chichester community if they had secured the £250m road investment in 2017.

Your Say

LETTER: Five years of one lane on A27

For those that support the ‘Full South’ Concept (SYSTRA report) as their preferred solution to the A27 at Chichester, I would invite them to have a look at the A3 Kingston bypass because that is likely to be the outcome.

LETTER: No sane reason to lose café

I am appalled at the council’s attitude.

LETTER: A27: ‘Making difficult decisions is never easy...’

Making difficult decisions is never easy as I’m sure Nick Herbert will understand.

LETTER: Rebuild bridge but using Lego

Just how much longer do they need to construct a workable pedestrian footbridge at the Stockbridge roundabout at Chichester.

LETTER: Stand back and think hard

LETTER: Stand back and think hard

I am afraid it seems to be turning into the usual NIMBY situation... in this case ‘North versus South’.

LETTER: City’s shops are just rubbish

LETTER: City’s shops are just rubbish

I live in Chichester and I think no one shops here is because really what do we have.

LETTER: Hope decision is for whole area

LETTER: Hope decision is for whole area

RE: BABA27 Concepts. I am a retired chartered civil engineer and transport planner who prior to retirement worked for WSCC Highways.

LETTERS: New roads add to commuters

Having kept abreast of progress on this very important matter (helped by excellent reporting and involvement by your paper) I wish to point out that a much wider view should be taken in addition to the obvious parochial view.

Your Say

LETTER: Hope Systra has more detail

I hope that the Systra report shows a bit more detail than the sketch in the Observer. Why all the changes in types of dotted lines? What is the significance?

Your Say

LETTER: Clear trail of proof of rights

As usual, whenever the Labour party makes an attempt to hold the government to account for their latest act of jaw-dropping callousness, the phrase ‘politically motivated’ or ‘playing with politics’ is trotted out by the Tories, in this case by Mrs Keegan in her letter last week.

Your Say

LETTER: The very beauty will be eroded

Louise Goldsmith reveals a predictable enthusiasm for the Arundel bypass in your paper dated 17 May by saying ‘ I am delighted to see the option going through and now all efforts have to go into Chichester’ adding ‘we are also encouraging people to come in and see this beautiful county – but if they are stuck for hours on the A27 they may not be so keen to accept our invitation.

Your Say

LETTER: Need to bring city back to life

What has happened to Chichester? There was a time when the city could boast a good hotel, the Dolphin and Anchor, much less traffic so that the Cross could act as a roundabout, the train station was modern and there was no chewing gum on the pavements.

Your Say

LETTER: Wartime bypass is obsolete

It is imperative that a diverted A27 with junctions near to Old Broyle road and Lavant is built to the north of Chichester.

Your Say

LETTER: There is only one solution

I have followed the progress of the BABA27 meetings with great interest and, along with many others, contributed to the questionnaire in your newspaper.

Your Say

LETTER: Build under and over passes

I have just read 17 May Observer. I don’t think there is any need to build a new road and spoil the countryside north of Chichester.

Your Say

LETTER: Be careful what you wish for

We who live in Chichester and the surrounding area are blessed with a swathe of beautiful countryside on our doorstep that most other communities can only dream of.

Your Say

LETTER: Fast moving and exciting

I was interested to read Vicky Edwards’ article in your paper last November on Kingsley Poole, a young local author who was publishing his first set of novels.
