It is clear that the proposed road closures, which create an isolation of many rural communities, in some cases for the whole of a day - will have impact on the capability of any emergency service to serve the public. Please share any details of any additional policing requirements that are required due to the size & scale of the event (15,000+ cyclists + their family/spectators etc, vehicles).

Lastly, please advise what payment has been received, or is due to be received, by Sussex Police from the organisers of Velo South.

Yours faithfully,
