Hello. I'm Harsha Desai and I am the Cabinet Member for Growth and Place at Chichester District Council. I want to talk to you this week about the district's economy and how businesses are investing in our beautiful area.
Residents, businesses and visitors get into the party spirit at Chichester's annual Summer Street Party
Hundreds of people flocked to Chichester city centre this weekend to enjoy a day full of family fun with activities, entertainment, music, and delicious food and drink at the Chichester Summer Street Party and Cross Market & More.
A vegan wellness shop which hopes to help people buy more sustainably sourced and produced products has opened in Crane Street, Chichester. The shop has opened thanks to Chichester District Council's ongoing Pop-Up Shop initiative.
A new building that is providing much needed short-stay accommodation for people facing homelessness has received a prestigious award recognising its high-quality design.
A sixth seal sculpture has recently been installed in East Beach car park in Selsey thanks to a project led by Selsey Town Council, with funding from Chichester District Council.
With the sun shining and the summer holidays in sight, there is plenty to look forward to over the coming months. As the new Cabinet Member for Culture and Events, I thought it would be worth giving you a flavour of some of the many events and activities on offer throughout the district this summer.
With just days to go before the return of Chichester District Council's popular Summer Street Party, shoppers and visitors are being reminded not to miss the celebrations on Sunday 9 July between 10am and 4pm.
We all understand how challenging it has been for Midhurst residents and businesses since the fire in March, so it is such good news that the road through the town has now been reopened to vehicles. Let's all think about how we can support Midhurst over the coming weeks
With work to shore up the fire damaged buildings in Midhurst now complete, West Sussex County Council, as the Highways Authority, will re-open the A286 North Street to two-way vehicular traffic by close of play today (Friday 23 June).
