PEOPLE are being invited to have their say on plans for a 20mph speed limit in Chichester.

Following in the footsteps of Portsmouth, a 20mph limit could be introduced on many residential roads.

West Sussex County Council has agreed to consider the proposal, put forward by campaign group 20’s Plenty for Chichester.

The proposal includes all residential roads where a 20mph limit does not already exist. Most A and B roads would remain at 30mph.

Residents who want to have a say must do so before the deadline of September 24, when the public consultation ends.

Residents in Chichester will be sent a letter next month with a response form attached.

It will be accompanied by a map of the streets included in the proposal.

Mike Hall, chairman of South Chichester County Local Committee, said: ‘Reducing speeds reduces the number of killed and seriously injured people on our roads – that is a fact. It is your opportunity as a Chichester resident to make a choice.’
