Chichester Southern Gateway draft masterplan consultation

The Chichester Vision identified that the Southern Gateway of Chichester is a key entry point to the city. There is now significant opportunity to make better use of this area and improve the experience for visitors, businesses and residents. The draft masterplan aims to provide a vibrant new quarter for the city and contains development opportunities for certain sites and public realm priorities.

A masterplan, while not planning permission in itself, would then set the context for any planning applications put forward in the coming years.

There are two ways to have your say on the draft masterplan:

  • A Southern Gateway masterplan survey which walks you through the key locations covered in the draft masterplan with the opportunity to have your say
  • The full draft masterplan, with background studies, can be accessed on the Planning Policy pages. You can view the documents and make more detailed comment if you wish.

For people without access to the internet there will also be public events where you can view the masterplan and find out how to have your say.

The dates and locations are as follows:

  • Police Open Day, 15 July, Kingsham Road 10.30-15.00
  • 8th Chichester Scout Hall, Canal Field (Chichester High School) 28 July 14.00-20.00
  • 5th Chichester Scout Hall, Whyke Road, 28 July 14.00-20.00

The closing date for responses is 10th August by 17.00

Chichester District Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study

Your chance to help us plan for the future. The following survey is being conducted by an external consultant to help the council discover what is needed when it comes to open space across the district.

We would very much like to hear your views on Chichester District's Open Spaces, Sport and Recreation Facilities - you can help by filling in the survey  Chichester District Open Space, Sport and Recreation Survey .

The study is collecting  information about how much and what type of open space, sport and recreation facilities are needed to meet the needs of local people. The study is very wide ranging and covers things like swimming pools, leisure centres, village halls, parks and recreation grounds; sport pitches; play areas and youth facilities; tennis courts and bowling greens; allotments; wildlife areas/nature reserves, natural green spaces; footpaths, bridleways etc; and amenity and informal green spaces.

The findings from the survey will be used by the council as part of the evidence base for the Local Plan, and to help make decisions regarding the future of open spaces, sport and recreation facilities, including helping to prioritise potential  improvements.

The deadline for responses is 4 August.
