Town visions are a way of understanding the issues and aspirations of a town and its communities and turning thoughts and ideas into actions.

With collaboration and confidence building at the heart of the process, Chichester District Council is committed to supporting local towns to create their own visions that will help guide them to success - now and in the future.

Chichester Vision Selsey Vision



Selsey town vision

The process of creating Selsey Vision started in 2018, with more than 800 comments and ideas submitted as part of a community survey.  

From the survey, the top five suggestions to be included in Selsey Vision were:

  • More Doctors and NHS Dentists
  • Improvements to the seafront - access, retail and cafes (particularly cafes where you can have a cup of tea and see the sea)
  • More events for Selsey - with a focus on increasing visits to the town
  • Better retail offer and improvements to the look and feel of the High Street
  • Better performance space/craft making space and exhibition space - collectively an arts centre

Chichester District council is currently working on these priority projects:

  1. improving Wayfinding in the town and
  2. improving East Beach.

Selsey Vision is being managed by Selsey Town Council. Please visit Selsey Town Council for updates.

What is the Selsey Vision?

It's a way of thinking of how the town could be in the future - and making it happen. Inevitably it will deal with problems that affect the lives of local people, but predominantly it will be a positive process, aimed at finding ways forward that make life better for everyone.

Will 'the council' be making it happen?

Selsey Town Council and Chichester District Council have started the process, but the nature of Selsey Vision will be to create a series of projects that can be delivered, over time.

Actions in the Vision, will happen in collaboration with many groups, organisations and individuals - coming together to work out what needs to be done, creating funding bids and having the confidence, skills and means to make a difference.

It's down to all of us to make it happen.

Midhurst Vision

Midhurst Town Vision logo  Following a community survey with more than 1000 responses, Midhurst Vision is at the start of a process of development.

Working with a place-branding specialist, local people have agreed the following principles that will drive Midhurst Vision forward.

The vision for Midhurst in 2030 is:

  • Innovative - Creative and collaborative, traditional and cutting edge working together.
  • Vibrant - A hive of activity, making the most of its heritage, events and people.
  • Green - In harmony with its surroundings, creating green initiatives to promote sustainability and well-being.
  • The place to be - Exciting and interesting, appealing to all generations. Calm and rejuvenating, somewhere you can just 'be'.

Visit Midhurst Vision  for the latest information.


Project groups have started meeting looking at branding, transport, developing business opportunities and promoting the town.  Groups and organisations from all over Midhurst and the local authorities are involved.

What is the Midhurst Vision?

It's a way of thinking of how the town could be in the future - and making it happen. The current Vision, written in 2008 is being updated - or refreshed, as we like to say - to bring things up to date and take account of the future.

Who is making it happen?

Midhurst Town Council and Chichester District Council have started the process and Midhurst Town Team CIC is a partner. Other groups and organisations are also involved, for example Visit Midhurst and Visit Chichester.

The project groups are very small, but the members of each group will be reaching out to other people in the local community to create clear actions that can be delivered - or to find ways of taking the next step to achieve rather more ambitious projects.

How do I get involved?

We are in the process of creating a website that will be an online portal for Midhurst Vision, but in the meantime, please send your views/comments/questions to
