Expansion will make ‘dire’ parking situation worse

I AM sure I’m not alone among local residents in being unable to share the excitement of Julie Sleeman regarding the further expansion of Chichester College.

On the contrary, I look upon it with some dread.

By their own admission the college will lose 32 car parking spaces, thus exacerbating the already dire parking situation on the clogged narrow residential roads in the Parklands area.

This adds credence to to the views of Mike White (Observer, April 26) that developers are allowed to ride roughshod over local residents when local planning applications are considered.
