Chichester District Council
Yorkstone Paving and Granite Setts & Kerb
Most councils treat their car parks as though they would prefer not to think about them and‚ so often‚ they give such a bad impression to the visitor that they can be quite offputting. Here‚ in Chcichester‚ however‚ the council provided a simple‚ yet elegant Yorkstone and granite kerb treatment which is a delight and so thoroughly in keeping with the visitor expectation for the city.
Even the pedestrian crossing to the roadway was sympathetically treated. Interestingly the granite chosen for the kerb is not the usual silver grey but a mid grey‚ considerably more robust and less likely to be damaged. Granite kerbs last for ages in any case but with the likelihood of frequent impact‚ this was an interesting and sensible approach and‚ alongside the Yorkstone‚ it looks good too.
