Chichester City Council will consider a request to bestow astronaut Tim Peake with the Freedom of the City.

Chichester resident Edward Milward-Oliver has submitted a question to the council requesting Major Peake, as an ‘exceptional role model’, should be presented with a Key to the City.

Mr Milward-Oliver asks: “In recognition of Major Tim Peake’s inspirational space flight and the exceptional role model he continues to provide for the children of not only his home town of Chichester, but the whole country, will the council consider conferring on him the Freedom of this great city?”

His question is set to be considered at the Chichester City Council meeting next Wednesday, February 3.
