Sustainable Transport

Sussex Wildlife Trust believes there is a need to move towards truly sustainable and accessible public transport systems in Sussex. We believe that transport policies should be founded on the principles of smarter travel: reducing the need to travel, increasing travel choices, and maximising efficiency through new technology.

Our transport policy supports measures which:

  • Reduce the need to travel through:
    • well-designed towns, cities and neighbourhoods with local, accessible services
    • actions to enable home-working and reduce workplace travel e.g. sustainable and efficient internet connectivity right across Sussex
  • Improve public transport and active travel routes for walking and cycling, which should be integrated with strategic green infrastructure wherever possible
  • Promote less carbon-intensive forms of transport and reduce dependency on private vehicle use
  • Promote management of existing transport infrastructure to improve the impacts on nature, including:
    • reconnecting habitats severed by linear transport corridors
    • sympathetic habitat management alongside roads, railways and canals and within the area under the control of transport hubs
  • Seek to minimise the damage of new transport schemes by ensuring the true benefits and costs to natural capital are considered
