Footpaths and bridleways in Seaford and Hailsham are set for a revamp under a programme outlined by East Sussex County Council.

The news will come as a boost to walkers, cyclists and riders, who are set to benefit from the proposal.

Over the next few weeks East Sussex County Council contractors will be working on a total of 11 footpaths to make it easier for residents and visitors to the county to get around.

A total of three Seaford locations are set for improvements.

The footpaths between Romney Close and Perth Close, between Sutton Drove and Alfriston Road and in the town centre from Green Walk.

In Hailsham, repairs and the installation of vehicle barriers to two bridleways in the northern part of Milton Hide, which link Arlington Road West and Hempstead Lane are set to go ahead.

“Access around East Sussex for pedestrians, cyclists and riders is extremely important and we will be working with contractors to get the surface of a number of key routes repaired, while our rangers have been working hard all summer to try to ensure footpaths are 
kept clear,” said Councillor Carl Maynard, East Sussex County 
Council’s lead member for transport and environment.
