The Government has announced “A nationwide drive to promote cycling in cities and national parks across England”.
This includes money specifically for cycle projects in the New Forest and South Downs national parks. See the announcement page for more detail.
We understand that the approved projects include a cycle path through the Butser cutting. Some of you might have signed the petition organised by Cycle Hayling committee member Robert Sebley. Robert worked closely with Mike Ashton of Portsmouth CTC who worked on the bid. Our congratulations to Mike, Robert and everyone involved in this bid – it’s been a lot of work over several years!
