Vision and objectives

Our aim is to develop an effective, well managed transport infrastructure with improved travel choices.

We want to make East Sussex a prosperous county by:

  • helping businesses to thrive
  • delivering better access to jobs and services
  • creating safer, healthier, more sustainable and inclusive communities.

Transport contributes to a wide range of other policies and plans. Our high-level objectives are to:

  • improve economic competitiveness and growth
  • improve safety, health and security
  • tackle climate change
  • improve accessibility and enhance social inclusion
  • improve quality of life.

Our ten specific transport objectives are set out in Chapter 2.
