Reinstating funding for Walking and Cycling

We the undersigned petition the council to reinstate £5m of Walking and Cycling funding, taken from the 2018/2019 budget. This is in the light of local councils committing to carbon reduction targets and a shift to active travel

Ring fenced Walking and Cycling Capital funding was used to cover an overspend in road building in Hastings and Bexhill. £2m (out of £9m) from Eastbourne & South Wealden and £3m (out of £12m) from Hastings & Bexhill. Now there is only limited funding for a small number of schemes

ESCC should be supporting active travel by restoring funding, to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the health of the county.

This ePetition ran from 03/12/2019 to 21/01/2020 and has now finished.
