In May 2020, the government announced an opportunity to bid into the emergency active travel fund (EATF) for funding to provide temporary schemes that would facilitate walking or cycling in place of mass public transport in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
The County Council, in co-operation with District and Borough councils, identified 7 schemes that would fulfil the government’s criteria and was successful in securing funding for all of these.
The schemes were implemented over a period of 8 weeks between July and September 2020.
The Chichester scheme has been operational since it opened on 24 August and sufficient data has been gathered to help assess its impact. A decision can now be made to determine if the scheme should be retained, removed or substantially revised.
The Cabinet Member for Highways and Infrastructure has approved the removal of the emergency active travel cycle scheme installed in Chichester.
Note: the decision was called in and considered by the Environment and Communities Scrutiny Committee on 18 November 2020. The Scrutiny Committee supported the decision and the decision came into effect on 18 November 2020.
