On the 30th September East Sussex County Council’s Cabinet met to consider and then approved the LCWIP for the county. This now means that the LCWIP has formally been adopted and will be used in the future to safeguard and improve the current cycle provision.

Unlike WSCC which is allowing the LCWIP to be produced on a district level, ESCC is producing its LCWIP on the county level, however it is split into 6 sub-sections which partly align with the districts. The plan doesn’t included what measures will be introduced as part of each scheme or the exact alignment of these routes, in addition the plan can change overtime.

Routes of each section will be outlined in future posts, however the priority routes which already have funding or are due to be constructed in the next 10 years are below.
