LETTER: Parking charges need addressing

I read with interest the story re ‘Spate of chains sent to move out of city’s high street’ – yes it is indeed a sad omen.

LETTER: No such thing as a free lunch

So there is no such thing as a free lunch after all.

LETTER: Misrepresented on spring issue

With regards to work carried out at the Virgin Mary Spring in Petworth, the position of the South Downs National Park Authority is being misrepresented.

LETTER: How can homes be sustainable?

I wrote to Councillor Brown: In 2008, with respect to the proposal to build 5,000 homes on brownfield land in Ford, you stated: “A development like this cannot possibly achieve the principles of sustainability, delivering local employment, developing on brownfield land and adequate provision of affordable housing.

I wish to protest at the headline on the front page of the Chichester Observer May 4th, ‘People to suffer for the sake of homes’.

We agree with Sally Pavey of Communities Against Gatwick Noise & Emmissions – Airport major election issue – May 5th.

LETTER: Town is not quaint or dozy

It was with interest that I read your report on Arundel’s annual town meeting (Observer, May 4) in which planning consultant Lindsay Frost warned of the trap that ‘too quaint, too affluent, too dozy’ market towns can fall into. He went on, you reported, to welcome the ‘opportunities’ that an Arundel bypass might present.

LETTER: Health risks of air pollution

Now that the Government has been forced by law to publish their Air Quality Plan for consultation and, with the ever increasing media publication of detrimental effects to the public from diesel exhaust emissions, the residents in Chichester are hopefully becoming more aware of the health risks given that the city has exceeded Government targets for air pollution in the three AQMAs (Air Quality Management Areas) in the Stockbridge, Orchard Street and St Pancras areas.

LETTER: Money but only for existing A27

I have read the article on the A27 Improvement Plans and note that the cash is still available provided it is applied to the existing route.

LETTER: Deliberately vague PM

I was not surprised by the departure of Andrew Tyrie, Chichester’s independently-minded, ‘One Nation’, pro-European MP following an unnecessary general election called by a Eurosceptic, Brexit-obsessed administration which places ideological party dogma above the wider domestic needs of the country.

Your Say

LETTER: Numbers don’t add up for A27

I am surprised that Graham Willis (letters 27 April) is willing for taxpayers to waste £280m on a scheme to save less than six minutes in time to bypass Chichester. He clearly believes the data in the HE document.

LETTER: Must ensure NHS is funded

With the general election looming, politicians from all parties must not duck the crisis in our NHS or allow it to be pushed to the margins by the focus on Brexit.

Your Say

LETTER: Apathy is cause of the decline

We all know how busy our lives apparently are, how other matters seem to demand higher priority over others.

LETTER: Give us power to make changes

With West Sussex County Council elections approaching fast (May 4) it may be worth reflecting on some of the key challenges ahead, not least in the funding of services.

LETTER: A new shopping centre please

Our city centre is dying. And the latest small business to close is one that cannot and will not be replaced.

LETTER: Money needed to be spent

It is surprising to read a Liberal Democrat spokesman of all people decrying the £3.3 million spent on democratising the important local decision of upgrading the A27 around Chichester.

On the left is the Duke of Monmouth mounted on a white steed. He was an illegitimate son of Charles II who made claim to the English throne. His rebellion failed and the Duke was tried for treason and executed. On the right a highwayman is depicted at his business. Robert Congden became such a man after deserting from Monmouths army.

Sussex highwayman’s Dutch connection to rebel Duke

Robert Congden was born into a well-off Midhurst family in 1662.

Today I had the occasion to visit St Richard’s Hospital for a routine blood test.
