Dear West Sussex County Council,
In the recent planning application for new homes on the current Haywards Heath Golf Course there is a map and extract from "West Sussex Walking and Cycling Strategy", however I am unable to find the source document for this, except the "West Sussex Walking and Cycling Strategy 2016-2026", which only contains a list of 300ish suggested routes by "stakeholders", and not the map.
I am asking for
1. A copy of this map (or access to this map)
2. Any information regarding schemes for cycle routes in or around (upto 2km from the edge of the built up area of Haywards Heath / Cuckfield / Lindfield)
Document with the extract in. DM/20/0559 - "Transport assessment - Main report" 2.32

Dear Thomas Jarvis,
Our Ref: FOI/712
On 25/02/2020 you made the following request for information, which has
been dealt with in accordance with the provisions of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000.
West Sussex Walking and Cycling Strategy Map and any information regarding
schemes for cycle routes in or around (up to 2km from the edge of the
built up area of Haywards Heath / Cuckfield / Lindfield)
We have now completed a search for the information which you requested and
confirm that this Authority holds data relevant to your request.
The Response to your request is as follows:
With regard to cycle route schemes in the Haywards Heath area, I can
advise that a new shared path across Clair Park, Haywards Heath is due to
be constructed during 2020/21. In addition, preliminary design and
consultation for a scheme in Commercial Square, Haywards Heath is also
programmed. Details of all programmed highways schemes are published in
the Highways & Transport Delivery Programme, which is available to view on
our website, and I have provided a link to the current programme below.
The 2020/21 programme is due to be approved by the Cabinet Member for
Highways & Transport shortly, and this page will be updated thereafter.
The schemes highlighted above originate from the Haywards Heath Town
Centre Transport Study produced in 2015. The County Local Committee report
for this study from September 2015 is included within this response which
contains appendix links to a non-technical summary of the study and scheme
plans. Potential cycle routes identified within this study are also
highlighted in the West Sussex Walking and Cycling Strategy.
