As local Liberal Democrats, we’ve always championed sustainable modes of transport. We need your help to support walking, cycling and sustainable modes of transport across Lewes District and help lobby ESCC to put resources into a local walking and cycling investment for Lewes.
Now is the time to have your say, East Sussex County council have released a consultation for the East Sussex Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan. The deadline to complete this is 11th December.
The Plan sets out proposed cycling and walking networks, but it doesn’t have specific proposals. ESCC say they are focusing on areas of the county where there are opportunities to increase levels of walking and cycling with an emphasis on delivering infrastructure improvements for those who don’t walk and cycle.
While Lewes, Seaford and Newhaven have been covered in the plan, there’s not enough on routes between villages and between our towns and villages.
The link to the consultation is below. Please do go online and complete the survey. The more Lib Dem voices added to the survey, the stronger the voices will be to support sustainable transport in our towns and to make sure our villages are not forgotten.
Thanks for your help!
