Chichester Committee to decide whether to fund ‘20’s Plenty’ consultation

‘20’s Plenty for Chichester'

The South Chichester County Local Committee will decide at its next meeting whether to provide funding for a consultation regarding the introduction of 20mph speed limits across the city.

The meeting is being held on Tuesday November 1 at 7pm at County Hall, Chichester, in Committee Room 3. Members of the public are welcome to attend.

Committee Chairman, Mike Hall, said: “The community group 20’s Plenty for Chichester has been campaigning to make 20mph the default speed limit for the city of Chichester.

“Before the idea can be taken any further we would need to agree to a public consultation as recommended and refer to the Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport for a final decision.

“If the Committee decides to go ahead with this, it would be funded through section 106 funds, which are financial contributions from developers received as a result of planning applications to support infrastructure projects.”

The Committee will also receive a petition calling for a crossing point or traffic calming measures on the Lagness Road/Vinnetrow Road mini roundabout in Runcton.

Members of the public will also be able to raise issues about County Council services during the regular ‘talk with us’ session.
