A footpath which runs parallel to Bell Farm Road, Uckfield, is to be converted to a shared cycleway/footway by East Sussex County Council.
The change follows the opening of the Meads Medical Centre, which is close to the West Park housing estate.
It will incorporate an existing section of cycleway which runs from near to Tesco to Streatfield Road on the Rock Park housing estate. The path, which continues to West Park, will become “shared”.
The proposal is designed to encourage use of sustainable forms of transport to and from the medical centre, High Street and beyond.
