Councillors Reject Unpopular A27 Scheme

At a special meeting on Wednesday 27 September, Chichester District Council members refused the temptation to back Highways England’s Option 2 and see the £250m funding restored.

With West Sussex County Council highly likely to do the same and with the backing of MP Gillian Keegan, the city will turn its back on the unpopular ‘quick fix’. Now the city has until Easter to come up with a new scheme that solves years of traffic problems and unites the community to be in with a chance of the next round of billion-pound Government roads funding.

Though not guaranteed, Highways England has promised its support.
