Covid-19 Support

Chichester Community Development Trust have created a bank of volunteers that will try to help those that are self-isolating or need practical help as a result of the virus.
Initially it was made available to residents at Graylingwell Park, Roussillon Park and Keepers Green, but we understand that they are now able to cover most of the north of the city.
We should emphasise that people still need to make full use of support from family and friends as a first port of call, otherwise these voluntary support services will be over run and those that don't have a good support network, and are most in need, might get missed out.
If you would like some support from their team, details are here

WSCC also has a dedicated webpage which is full of useful information, with many links including to all the relevant government sites. It is updated daily. You can find it here

We regret that we have had to cancel our meetings until further notice.

Welcome to the web site of the Summersdale Residents’ Association (SRA). We are the largest such Association in the district of Chichester covering much of the North of the city. We have approximately 400 member houses representing over 1000 adults. The work is staffed entirely by volunteers from varying walks of life and the committee meets 8 times a year.  Members are always welcome at committee meetings.

The Association is an integral part of the Summersdale area of Chichester. It aims to encourage community spirit, to preserve and improve the environment and amenities and to foster the interests of Summersdale residents.

We represent you on a number of local committees including the :-

  • Network of Chichester Residents' Associations
  • Goodwood Aerodrome and Motor Circuit Consultative Committees
  • Local Transport Forum
  • NE Forum
  • In addition we have close contacts with the Chichester Society, the East Broyle Residents Association and local Neighbourhood Watch Groups.

    We monitor planning applications proposed in the Summersdale area and lodge objections where appropriate, in addition to keeping a watching brief on wider development activities in the area.

    Our web site will give you all the details including how you can join for the very modest fee of £5 per household per year, and we look forward to you taking a positive interest in the activities of our Association.
