Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has today strongly endorsed the West Sussex County Council’s Parking Management Plan for roads around the company’s Head Office and Manufacturing Plant at Goodwood, West Sussex. Rolls-Royce has consistently and publicly voiced concern at the lack of local parking and speed controls, and last month called upon the local authorities for urgent action.
The West Sussex County Council Parking Management Plan, which was presented to local residents at a special meeting hosted by Westhampnett Parish Council, proposes additional double yellow lines in key locations and permit parking controls to support local residents. A new cycle path is introduced and is included in the overall plans.
DON’T MISS OUT
Torsten Müller-Ötvös, the CEO, said, “We are delighted that West Sussex County Council has announced consultation for a Parking Management Plan that will have a positive impact on our community and we wholly endorse this initiative”. He continued, “However, this does not answer the dangerous issue of speeding on local roads and we again call on our local authorities – Sussex Police, West Sussex County Council and Chichester District Council – to urgently manage the issue of speeding.”

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars works hard to be a good neighbour and liaises closely with employees, suppliers, the Westhampnett Parish Council, local authorities and the community. The company has invested heavily in its business to support this ethos, building – for example – a new, multi-million pound, 500‑space car park to minimise the number of employee vehicles parked on local roads, including a dedicated 40-space car park for the local school to ensure child safety.
