LETTER: Against Canal Trust’s interests

Attending the Chichester Ship Canal Trust annual meeting on Wednesday, November 16, I was shocked to hear the chairman Mike Bushel state his policy to abandon the central part of the canal and that he has no interest in forwarding the basic premise of the stated aims of the Trust, ‘the preservation, maintenance and improvement of canals – in particular the navigation between Chichester and the Harbour’.

LETTER: Kick in the teeth for volunteers

So the Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which includes St Richard’s Hospital, Worthing Hospital and Southlands Hospital in Shoreham, has decided to entrust all their shop, café and restaurant services (save for the WRVS offerings) to the UK’s largest contract caterers – Compass Group UK.

LETTER: Schools and police funding

It is very clear from your report in this week’s paper (November 10) that the police are seriously underfunded. Your article in the same edition about the debate in Parliament concerning the major shortfall of funding for West Sussex schools is clearly making the same point.

LETTER: Cash benefits of public service

The Chichester Court closures raise questions over how spending of taxpayers’ money is prioritised.

LETTER: Why not link up with trunk road?

The concept of the East-West trunk road from Kent to Devon largely following the current A27 has been much supported by the likes of Highways England and predecessors as vital to the economy of the south east in general.

LETTER: Is it ‘profit before people’?

On Friday the 11th, the CDC planning committee approved phase one of the Whitehouse farm development by Linden and Miller homes.

LETTER: Rail strike not about safety

Let’s be quite clear that this strike by the RMT is not about safety. That was all dealt with 33 years ago when the NUR and ASLEF ‘blacked’ brand new electric units on the Bedford to St Pancras line between December, 1981, and April, 1983, because they were to be run as “DOO” Driver only operation.

LETTER: Democracy out of the window

I have received some clarification about the Bosham referendum from the parish council and this confirms my fears that this is just an attempt to receive the extra ten per cent levy from developers and give themselves a free hand in deciding where the housing will be (Cala Homes proposals?).

Your Say

LETTER: Car park charge will mean chaos

I am horrified to read that the district council plan to institute evening charges in the theatre car park.

Your Say

LETTER: What happened to safety slogan?

Once again, with the advent of dark evenings it would seem that a minority of the population consider the majority have extra visual capabilities in the dark.

Your Say

LETTER: Car park charge mealy mouthed

I am writing to express my disgust at Chichester District Council’s decision to start charging for car parking at the Chichester Festival Theatre and the New Park.

Your Say

LETTER: Exploiting our resources

It was with great disappointment that I read of the decision by Chichester District Council to support the imposition of an evening parking charge on the two most culturally important car parks in our city (Observer, November 3).

Your Say

LETTER: Council did try to engage

I was very disappointed to find that David Hollis (letters 27/10/16) did not find the consultation in respect of the proposed highways improvements in Felpham to be satisfactory.

Your Say

LETTER: What were the instructions?

I read with some concern your report of the statement made by the Highways England senior project manager for the A27 consultation.

Your Say

LETTER: Junction used by thousands

What is the point in having a local planning committee when their decisions can be over-ruled and overturned by one man, sitting in his Ivory Tower in Whitehall, with probably no personal knowledge of the area involved.

LETTER: Letter shows MP does listen

I am pleased to have received a letter from our MP Andrew Tyrie, MPs do listen.

LETTER: Where to get gas from?

I am delighted to note that our new chief executive, Nathan Elvery, has observed that we have, ‘rivers, coast and sunshine’ (as, indeed, do more than 50 counties of Great Britain), but I’m not sure why he believes these are a substitute for conventional energy sources.
