East Sussex Active Travel Programme

1. Overview

In October 2021, we were awarded £219,774 from the Department of Transport Capability Fund. The aim of this funding is to help people to walk and cycle more for everyday journeys.

This will deliver a programme of walking & cycling initiatives across East Sussex during 2021/22 and will help us develop schemes identified within the East Sussex Local Cycling & Walking Infrastructure Plan. The focus of the programme is in the areas of:

  • Newhaven
  • Eastbourne and South Wealden, and
  • Bexhill and Hastings.

We will be working in partnership with:

  • Sustrans
  • Living Streets
  • Active Cycling Projects
  • Sussex Community Rail Partnership

Our team are available to help East Sussex residents, employers, job seekers, schools, colleges, and community groups to explore how walking, cycling or public transport can be used as part of short or longer everyday journeys, such as going to school or college, for work or for local journeys to the shops or for leisure.
