The 900 space car park is located in the historic city of Chichester facing the medieval wall and cathedral. A new city wall supports an elevated tree lined walkway which screens the multi-deck car park. The new city wall, like the medieval wall, re-establishes the edge of the city and forms the new western approach and entrance portal into Chichester.
