LETTER: Street parking is a dreadful idea

I think street parking instead of car parks is a dreadful idea. I suppose they want to close the short stay car parks so they can build on them, more building, more money coming in from rates.

Your Say

LETTER: We should support leader’s efforts

In letters September 7, David Blackford, Ian Bartle and Vincent Foster all reject a northern route for the A27 but the public democratically rejected all the southern options in last year’s consultation.

Your Say

LETTER: Town shouldn’t be cut in half

Imagine a green valley. Cattle grazing in the water meadows. Tranquil woodland on the valley slopes. Then from the north comes a horde of grimy men. With picks and shovels, they carve a scar through the valley.

Your Say

LETTER: Have confidence in our new MP

With reference to David Blackford’s letter published September 7, it is arguably safe to assume that his opinion (to which he is entitled) is not based on fact, especially relative to WSCC’s initiative to engage a new consultant.

LETTER: Strange views on the trees

Dulcie Levett’s second letter (August 24), on the felling of two of the cathedral lime trees is strange.

Your Say

LETTER: Level crossing waiting times

I have just read the comments by Paul Coleman – head of level crossings in the South East – and I am somewhat confused by his comments.

Your Say

LETTER: Opportunity for less pollution

Mr Marson’s recent letter touches on an issue which, although it has considerable relevance to the A27 relief road, appears not to have been mentioned before in this context. Surprising, since it has recently been given considerable prominence in the media. I refer to air pollution caused by vehicles.

Your Say

LETTER: Tunnel cost or just gridlock

In today’s ‘Chichester Observer’ there were again conflicting letters on the A27 bypass mess.

Your Say

LETTER: Soon all centre trees will be lost

I cannot understand why TPOs (Tree Preservation Orders) were placed after, and not before, mature lime trees in West Street were recently felled implying that, had they been in place before felling, the lost limes may have been saved or made safer by careful pruning management?

Your Say

LETTER: Will we be represented over A27?

This time of year has always been considered ‘the silly season’ by the press. Everyone is away on holiday, not a lot happens and Chris Grayling has condescended to let us have our taxes back for ‘improvements’ to the bypass; so long as we all agree by the end of September.

Your Say

LETTER: Whole area is a nightmare

The proposed Barnfield Park phase 2 access from the Westhampnett Road on the Chichester side of the Sainsbury’s roundabout defied belief.

Your Say

LETTER: Make less free with reputation

Dulcie Levett all but accuses ‘the bods in the cathedral’ of self-interested deceit in having two lime trees there declared diseased and dangerous, and cut down (letters, August 10).

Your Say

LETTER: Intelligent lights solution

In September of this year Milton Keynes will be setting into operation a novel, intelligent, traffic light system.

Your Say

LETTER: Now is the time for city to shine

“For Chichester to get funding for A27 improvements reinstated, the community ‘really needs to rally behind the proposals’ Highways England put forward last year, the Government company has told the Observer.”

Your Say

LETTER: Creating public health issue

Coupled with all of the Chichester housing developments being planned, and already under construction, the recent press coverage on the removal of the A27 funding, unless an online option was accepted, is disturbing.

The film ‘Dunkirk’ is presently packing people into our cinemas.

LETTER: Still a long way from uniting over A27

I have been following all the recent twists and turns on this issue, and it seems that even after all this time we are still a long way from the community uniting around an option that might then be funded by DOT and actually go ahead.

Your Say

LETTER: Park access needs thought

I read with interest your recent article regarding the proposed access to/from Cathedral Business Park (CBP) and the A259.

Your Say

LETTER: We need to protect trees

Well, well, well. How convenient for the bods in the cathedral that the very trees that they have wanted removed for so long have now become diseased, two of which have now been destroyed with two more due to go.

Your Say

LETTER: Consider extra A27 junction

In regard to the story ‘Southern access delay fears at Whitehouse Farm’, I have registered with your site but I have no option to comment and so I felt I should write.
