West Sussex Cycling Officer abolished

Sadly WSCC have decided to axe their one and only Cycling Officer post. So cyclists how have no-one in the County Council to put their point of view to our leaders and planners.

We wish Simone best wishes in the future, and hope that her skills are put to good use elsewhere as soon as possible!

It’s so short-sighted, in the face of future budget cuts and fuel price increases, to axe the person with the key to the one thing that can bring benefits to everyone for minimal cost: less pollution, less noise, minimal fuel costs, less congestion, fewer road deaths and injuries.

Cycling’s boom time is returning, and at some point, with the 20:20 vision of hindsight, the car-centred dinosaurs in charge of the County Council will seriously regret this decision.
