A27 Northern Bypass Going Through Lavant?

posted 16 Jan 2016, 06:40 by Richard Ryder

It seems that we could have a quick decision to route the A27 through Lavant.  There has been a flurry of recent activity and village residents and those potentially affected are now being alerted. A meeting of the Lavant Parish Council held on Tuesday 8 December was reported in the 10 December edition of the Chichester Observer; the paper most recently reported this possibility in July 2015.
Lavant residents have received this leaflet in the past few days and a new group called "Chichester Deserves Better" [CDB] has been formed to campaign for the right solution to Chichester's chronic traffic problems.  A member of of CDB was in attendance at the Parish Council Meeting.
An online petition has been started here and a facebook page been setup here
You can find links on the CDB website to your local councillors and Andrew Tyrie MP.
