New county-wide cycling design guidance announced

West Sussex County Council’s long-awaited Cycle Design Guide has finally been published. Whilst not as robust as we’d like (and it’s only guidance, not standards) this is nevertheless a welcome step forward. There is now a clear vision of what local planning authorities should expect of developers.

Specifically written for West Sussex, the Guide is for Local Planning Authorities who consult WSCC for advice on any road and transport issues that affect proposals submitted for planning permission.
