  1. The modelling for the Local Plan is not required to assess weekends, bank holidays or seasonal changes that may alter traffic flows in the area. In Chichester’s case this could arise in the summer tourist season or when major events are held at Goodwood. This is a major flaw in a district whose major economies are tourism and agriculture/horticulture.
