Car clubs and hire schemes are good ways to make use of a car without owning your own and contributing to the number of cars on the road. It can also be more cost effective, convenient and without the hassle of owning and maintaining your own vehicle.
In this section you will find information about Chichester's Community Car Club scheme as well as information on car hire, van rental and car share opportunities.
You can also view forum posts from Roussillon Park residents who are looking to car share.
In the future, Roussillon Park will itself join the car club, with a further provision of two cars based on the development.
A Chichester wide car club was launched in November 2012, run by a local community/Chichester District Council team in partnership with Co-wheels Car Club, a national car club operator. Two vehicles are located in Chichester, with one in a dedicated bay in East Street and one in West Street. Roussillon residents are able to join this car club.
For more details go to the car club website.
All prices are inclusive of VAT.
The club is available available to anyone aged 18 and over who has held a driving licence for 12 months. If under 21 then no convictions, disqualifications or accident claims, for over 21 generally similar criteria also apply.
Use a car club vehicle rather than buying a second car. Use the car club vehicle for a short journey not on the bus route. Do a shop at the supermarket (up to 2 hours is cheaper than 2 taxis)
Add up insurance, MOT, road tax, servicing, depreciation and you have a large annual bill before you do any mileage.
You can book a car on-line or by phone with as little as 1 minute's notice.
