eastbourne buzz news - Eastbourne Seafront

Following the decision by the Central Governments Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) not to allow Eastbourne Borough Council to amend the byelaw to permit cycling on certain sections of the promenade, the Borough Council has started work with East Sussex County Council to update the existing cycling strategy to incorporate both cycling and walking.  The DCLG has indicated that this step is necessary in advance of permitting cycling along the entirety of the seafront.

Councillor Steve Wallis, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said, “While this is a setback for a great many cyclists in Eastbourne, the DCLG has given a very clear steer that the door remains open subject to further work being undertaken.

“To this end, meetings with East Sussex County Council are already underway and I can assure everyone interested in a safe and sustainable cycling and walking network across Eastbourne, that the council will do all it can to advance this process.”
