In December 2020 Lewes Town Council agreed to support the Low Traffic Lewes Project led by Lewes Living Streets and Cycle Lewes. It also agreed a grant of £5,400 to fund two studies to support the project and particularly objectives 1 and 3 below:
A survey of visitors to Lewes High Street and shopping area (and a similar survey of businesses) and:
A camera survey to ascertain the current volume of through-traffic on the High Street.
One of the key results from the residents’ survey is that there is overwhelming support for more planning, seating and wider pavements as well as hop on hop off buses to get round the town.
Attached is the full progress report on the project so far.
