Hailsham Transport Improvements

Closed 23 May 2014

Opened 25 Apr 2014


Over recent years many new housing developments have taken place in and around Hailsham and Hellingly. Providing the necessary transport improvements to manage the impact of these developments is key to making sure the new housing integrates well into the area.

To identify exactly what improvements were required the County Council carried out a study: ‘The Movement and Access Strategy for Hailsham and Hellingly’ (MASHH). The improvements identified in the study were  designed to accommodate both the housing development that is currently under construction  and also the likely development that will take place  up to 2027 which is the period covered by the next Wealden Local Plan.

East Sussex County Council is working in partnership with Wealden District Council, Hailsham Town Council and Hellingly Parish Council to develop and implement a number of transport improvements to support future development in and around Hailsham.
