LETTER: Dancing in the streets at A27 news

Your reaction to the news that the offer of funding has been withdrawn for all the recent A27 improvement options suggests a city plunged into gloom – in fact I can assure you that thousands of us living in southern Chichester and south of the city are dancing in the streets in jubilation.

LETTER: Need round table solution

You can’t please everybody all of the time but running a consultation as Highways England has done has led to alienation and division.

LETTER: Failed to spot their own error

Both our MP, Andrew Tyrie and the leader of the WSCC, Louise Goldsmith must make the strongest representatons to the Transport Secretary and if not, the Prime Minister over the possible loss of funding for a bypass improvement.

LETTER: No option better than bad option

Even though your editorial and reports of March 2 suggested there was widespread disappointment or worse about the Secretary of State’s decision to cancel the A27 improvements round Chichester, that is not what people have been telling me. They are quite pleased.

LETTER: MP should back the majority

While grateful to our MP, The Rt Hon. Andrew Tyrie, for his latest reply to ongoing correspondence concerning the A27 Chichester Bypass Improvements, I am compelled to comment, respectfully but critically, that his communications on the matter bring to my mind the image of someone hesitating to enter a minefield (rather than simply ‘sitting on a fence’, as others have written).

Shame on Theresa May’s government and especially our local politicians who voted to scrap the Dubs Agreement aimed at allowing 3000 child refugees into the UK.
