LETTER: Consultation at wrong time

After a prolonged and expensive period of planning, there is now to be a prolonged and expensive post hoc series of consultations. What are they for?

Is community severance a price worth paying?

LETTER: A27 – a bodge to fit the price

Attending the exhibition by Highways England showing plans for the A27 Chichester Bypass I sensed it was (limited) money and not solving the problem which was driving the whole process.

LETTER: Consultation ignores Bognor

Readers in the greater Bognor area, which consists of a population of almost 64,000 people (from Wikipedia and 2011 census) might be interested or like me concerned at the lack of a democratic approach adopted by Highways England (HE) when mounting the A27 consultation.

LETTER: A27 upgrade – the 6th option

Highways England have now confirmed that 48,000 vehicles a day use the existing A27 Chichester bypass and that 42 per cent of these are ‘through traffic’.

Your Say

LETTER: Option 2 is best for the A27

The Chichester Bypass improvement document lacks the assumed time to drive the three miles from the entry to the Portfield roundabout to leaving the Fishbourne roundabout for the present road configuration, which is needed to judge the savings of time of up to less than six minutes.

LETTER: Fire service deterioration

I am glad the Observer has covered the county council’s campaign to stop the Police & Crime Commissioner taking control of our fire & rescue service.

LETTER: Now the Battle for Britain

Politicians of all the main parties and our European partners did not understand the British public are against the free movememt of the EU because it worked all right when the countries had the same living standards and wages as us but when the Eastern Europeans joined as they had lower wages etc they came here in very large numbers and changed our towns and cities, bringing in their own shops and speaking their own language, took our homes that were in short supply, also our jobs and used our NHS services and benefits.

LETTER: A27 routes is already decided

So at long last Highways England informs us that we can have a say on the A27 options I suppose that as residents we should be thankful that they have finally acknowledged us.

LETTERS: The A27: A disgusting state of affairs

Isn’t it great to see common sense prevail over the abolition of a ‘northern’ by-pass? Unfortunately that’s as far as common sense seems to go.

LETTER: Don’t they care about islands?

Shocking, slovenly, depressing ,frustrating and shameful. Just a few of the adjectives which spring to mind, when encountering the surrounds to the Chichester bypass.

LETTER: Housebound due to closure

Since February 8, the ancient footpath (twitten) behind Central School in Orchard Street has been closed to enable construction of four houses on a new development over the site of the former school canteen.

Your Say

LETTER: Course of action is madness

In 2003, possessed by some irrational quasi-religious fervour, Tony Blair closed his mind to voices of reason and sanity and led us into a war – the disastrous and eminently predictable consequences of which still continue to de-stabilise our world and fuel divison and suffering.

Your Say

LETTER: Same dilemma new location

Just before the last general election, there was a campaign spearheaded by Cllr Louise Goldsmith to bring a solution to the bypass chaos and local air pollution. I do not share her brand of party politics, but I do very much share her love of Sussex and wish her well.
