Chichester Proposed Parking Management Plan

Closes 31 Mar 2019

Opened 1 Mar 2019

Overview

There are growing pressures on the on-street parking space within Chichester. 

The County Council has therefore piloted a new approach that seeks to create a longer term plan to meet current and future on-street parking demands across the city as well as support economic development, improve safety and promote more sustainable forms of transport.

This long term plan, known as the Chichester ‘Road Space Audit’ (RSA) was completed in 2017 and is designed to complement existing statutory plans and emerging studies in respect of transport infrastructure, parking policy and spatial planning.

Why We Are Consulting

In 2018, County Councillors considered the RSA and agreed that one of its recommendations, a proposal for a Parking Management Plan (PMP), should be prepared and shared with the public.   

The Chichester PMP is a method of controlling/managing on-street parking across the entire city and is similar in design and operation to the County Council’s Controlled Parking Zones, of which there are seven currently operating in Billingshurst, Bognor Regis, Chichester, Crawley, East Grinstead, Horsham and Worthing.

The proposed PMP covers the entire city because the County Council would like to be proactive and try and deal with existing and future parking issues in one go. 

A map of the overall proposed Parking Management Plan scheme plan is provided below.  Only those Zones coloured blue form a part of this consultation.

Existing Controlled Parking Zones (illusrated above using the colour orange, e.g. Zones E, H, H2, J, K, M) are not being consulted upon at this time as they are periodically reviewed as a matter of course.  More detailed zone maps can be accessed by clicking on the links provided at the bottom of the page and within the online questionnaire below.

If you are not sure which road(s) are located in which zones, please click on the 'Zones by Road Name Lists' provided below.  The link will take you to a  table of Zones in an excel spreadsheet, and each zone will have a list of each of the road names within it. You can click on the different tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet to view the different Zone lists.  Reminders of this information are contained within the survey questionnaire. 

The County Council would like the general public to be able to view and comment on the initial PMP proposals. The public consultation begins on Friday 1st March 2019 and ends on the 31st March 2019. In addition to this web page, hard copies of the proposals, the FAQs document and comments form (and a returns box) are available at Chichester Library and Chichester District Council Offices. Some drop-in sessions have also been arranged as detailed under the events section below.

The County Council is keen to stress that no decisions have been made yet and nothing be implemented directly as a result of this consultation. If there is initial support for the proposals, there will be at least one further consultation exercise later in 2019.

With this in mind, please take time to consider the proposals and answer the questions on the following pages.

There is a link to the plan of the proposed PMP avaialble at the 'related' section below, and you can also view details of the individual zones and an FAQs document which provides more detail on how the proposed PMP would work.
