City centre insights

We work with an external company to gather and analyse data from various sources to provide up-to-date statistics about the city centre.

Data collected includes:

Footfall – A footfall camera is installed on East Street, near the Cross. This counts the movement of pedestrians and shows us how busy the street is on any given hour, day or week.

Sales – City-wide sales performance is collected anonymously and weekly from a number of local businesses and benchmarked against national figures.

Vacancies – Vacant properties across Chichester at ground-floor level are recorded and benchmarked against national and regional figures.
