Benches and bike racks

Chichester City Council is responsibile for the benches and bike racks in the City Centre. 


The City Council maintains all the benches in the city centre as well as some further out within the Parish.

There are also benches in some of the disused burial grounds that the City Council retains responsibility for as well as those installed in Brewery Field.

Where benches are replaced or new benches are installed, the City Council has a policy of using benches constructed from recycled plastic where appropriate. These new style benches are hard wearing, require little maintenance and are also more eco-friendly due to being made from recycled materials.

Benches maintained by the City Council will carry an identification badge.

In the last few years, all the bike racks were replaced with new, low maintenance, stainless steel bike racks.
