VOTE Goodwood’s traffic impact

Petworth town councillors are to ask Sussex Police if they can help reduce the impact on rural communities of Goodwood’s first Sunday in the month race meetings.

County councillor Chris Duncton said last week he was concerned rural communities were suffering as a result of motor bikes roaring through villages early on Sunday mornings.

A biker himself, he told town councillors: “These are hugely successful events, but they are causing inconvenience to a lot of people in rural communities.”
