Media Project Interview with Helen Cato a core organiser for a Chichester Car Free Day

Helen continues to be an enthusiastic organiser working towards holding a Car Free Day in Chichester. Although disappointed that our 2019 Car Free event did not take place, she is dedicated to making Car Free Day a success  next year in 2020.

 

Media Project Interview with Debbie Carter of Chichester City Council

Debbie Carter came to the Avenue De Chartres multi-storey car park to discuss concerns that there might be a shortage of car parking spaces if a Car Free Sunday is held within the city walls.

The car park had a few more cars on it’s top deck than it did on this years international car free day 22nd September 2019. However it was still virtually empty. People who really need to drive into the city on a car free Sunday seem likely to easily find spaces in this giant car park. However, Debbie hopes most people will be able to find alternative forms of transport to visit Chichester on Car Free Sundays.

Media Project Interview with Doug Price of Chichester Priory Rotary Club

Doug Price joined the 2019 Chichester Car Free day project fairly late on in late August but he became very enthusiastic about holding a Playing Out event on car free day. Doug brings a lot of skills experience and good will from Chichester Priory Rotary Club.

If Doug looks anxious, it’s because we spent so much time talking with him while his wife Rosemary was waiting for him to return to Waitrose so they could finish their weekly shopping.

Laura Hayler of Cafe Paradiso talks about her hopes and anxieties about extending pedestrianisation on North Street, about the Chichester Vision plans for better connectivity between the City Centre and the theatre and her support for a Chichester Car Free Day.

Media Project Interview With Kay Mawer of Cloth Kits

On Thursday the 17th Oct, Chichester Car Free Day media project interviewed Kay Mawer of Cloth Kits. Her business is sited on the Hornet where there is often congestion and heavy traffic. Kay explains that pollution is turning her team into Cough Kittens rather than the Cloth Kittens that they aspire to be.

There is a petition organised for people who would like the traffic issues at the hornet resolved. https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/keep-the-hornet-moving
