LUXURY car firm Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has started construction of a new gated parking area that will create 500 spaces and a drop off area for the nearby primary school.
The development, taking place on land adjacent to the manufacturing plant and head office in Chichester, includes a dedicated 40-space car park for The March CE Primary School.
The school car park also incorporates a new road crossing, also funded by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars.
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said: ‘We have taken the opportunity to incorporate a dedicated car park for our local school – but this was not a planning condition, it was our own initiative.
‘It demonstrates our desire to promote child safety and also to be a good neighbour and member of the local community.’
The development is due to be completed by the end of this year.
