LCAG is a group of cycling
enthusiasts, who are campaigning to increase the number of safe
routes within the Town, and around the area. We've noticed that some cycle lanes
end in some very unlikely places, and there are other places
where none exist!
We'd like the Council to follow the lead of Brighton and Hove, Worthing, and many other seaside
towns, to involve people in a health giving, safe, fun and
carbon friendly hobby.
Cycling is a fantastic way
of staying healthy, as noted in many reports. The route
between the Town, and Littlehampton Swimming and Sports
Centre, along the promenade is one such wonderful route, we
think it's incumbent on the Council to encourage increasing
numbers of people to use this method of transport. They have a
duty to reduce the carbon footprint produced by residents and
achieve a more sustainable transport policy - indeed, it's
something we should all be looking to do. Safe cycling is a
great way to vastly reduce pollution, and at the same time
allow a greater level of fitness to the individual. It's FUN too!
Current planning regulation
requires new building plans to invest money into the
community, for the benefit of the community, and cycle routes
have been increased by utilising some of this investment. The
most recent, is the extension of the cycle route between
Highdown Drive and Joyce Close, soon to be completed. This, of course, will be good for
the residents of Wick, who will be able to safely
negotiate their way to Watersmead Park, Brookfield Park,
Rosemead Park, and Town, as well as allowing some degree of
increased safety for children cycling to The Littlehampton
This website has links to our Policy, Plans and Desires, things we try to get involved with, Reports to WSCC and others we have filed, and details of any events which may be forthcoming.
We support West Sussex County Council, Littlehampton Town Council, and Arun District Council in their
endeavors with cycle routes, but feel that much more could be
done to join up the routes, and make Littlehampton a great
place to cycle.
