Why We Are Consulting

In June 2012 the County Council was awarded £2.4 million from the Government's Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) to introduce measures to improve conditions for those walking, cycling and using public transport.

The aim of the LSTF programme is to support local authorities in delivering local transport schemes that will help deliver economic growth, whilst cutting carbon emissions and increasing levels of physical activity.

The money is to be used to introduce packages of local transport improvements in Lewes, Eastbourne, Newhaven and Peacehaven. This has to be spent by the end of March 2015, by which time all of the schemes will have to be implemented. 

In Eastbourne our focus has been to provide a network of routes for cyclists linking key destinations in the town. 

In addition we are also consulting on routes that would be funded from a development contribution secured from Sovereign Harbour.
