Wealden Local Transport Study 2018

The Wealden Local Plan Transport Study 2018 was commissioned jointly by East Sussex County Council (ESCC) and Wealden District Council. It builds upon and supersedes the previous Wealden Local Plan Transport Study 2017, which was based on a lower growth figure. The study considered the requirements for the time period to 2028. However, in identifying proposals for junction improvements to serve the area’s needs to 2028, the study has considered capacity issues beyond 2028 as part of each scheme’s development and elsewhere on the network. The report and associated documents can be found below:

This was superseded by the Wealden Local Plan Transport Study 2018 that is above.

Movement and Access Strategy for Hellingly and Hailsham (MASHH)

A Movement and Access Strategy has been commissioned by East Sussex County Council. It has produced a series of prioritised and costed schemes for Hailsham and Hellingly. These include an improved access junction to the A22 from Hempstead Lane; a single roundabout for South Road, Diplocks Way and Ersham Road; measures to relieve town centre traffic; an Eastbourne – Hailsham express bus service; improvements for pedestrians and real time bus information. The report can be downloaded below:

A MASHH Steering Group was set up to ensure that improvements in infrastructure keep pace with these changes and support the economic growth and jobs the local community needs. It is made up of representatives from Hailsham Town Council, Hellingly Parish Council, Wealden District Council and East Sussex County Council. One of the schemes being taken forward by the Steering Group is improvements to Hailsham Town Centre. For further information on the scheme and to view the plans, please visit the Hailsham Town Centre Improvements Scheme on East Sussex County Council’s website.
