The City Council's Business Plan outlines the areas in which the Council operates, both statutory and discretionary and expresses the Council's intention in respect of each area over the next four years. A list of actions completed, abandoned or on-going are also included in the Business Plan.
The Annual Report is produced in time for the Annual Parish Meeting and will include an overview of the year by the Mayor of Chichester, reports on each of the Standing Committees and draft accounts for the financial year.
The City Council has produced a revised Chichester Town Plan 'Towards a Vision for Chichester' which is based on the views of City Residents, Workers, Students and Visitors; Social Economic Groups in the City; and the Working Group Members. The Summersdale Neighbourhood Character Appraisal document was adopted by Chichester City Council at its meeting on 9 July 2008 and will be as an Annexe to the Chichester Town Plan.
Chichester City Impacts Study
Chichester City Council commissioned Hyland Edgar Driver, Landscape Architect and Urban Design practice based in Winchester, to undertake an independent study on the potential impacts of the proposed housing developments around Chichester.
The Impacts Study was presented at the Annual Parish Meeting on Wednesday 10 April 2013.
Community Assets Project
On behalf of Chichester City Council, local resident Mr Richard Cole carried out a Community Assets Project which was to identify what the citizens of Chichester value about their own immediate area, about the city and its setting and what improvements they think should be made to the City.
The findings of both the Impact Study and Community Assets Project will contribute towards the City Council's response to Chichester District Council's consultation on the new Local Plan for the district.
