We are grateful to Paul Wreyford for the use of his photos to illustrate the problems pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles face when using Westgate as a thoroughfare. These problems are set to increase with the proposed construction of 1600 new dwellings on the White House Farm development.
Our question is: What is the impact going to be for those of us trying to live on the street?
These pictures show that in no way can the current use of Westgate be considered safe or sustainable. Yet this situation is set to get some 12.5% worse at our eastern end with the White House Farm development.
At the time of writing, the developer’s outline planning application has not yet been determined. Now is the time to consult the developer’s plan on the Chichester District Council website and make your views known to Mr Mike Allgrove, Planning Policy Manager at Chichester District Council.
