Extended Harbour walk / cycle way.

Once the marina complex is built the ‘boardwalk’ will extend the majority of the way to the beach. Use this funding to finish the path all the way there. Could be used to encourage wellness and exercise in the town as well. This idea could be merged with others to open the beach / facilities.

  1. Yes that would be good as I always drive to seaford to have a walk along the beach. But it would be great to do that in my own town

  2. Newhaven could be such a good destination for cyclists. I am not a cyclist myself, but notice lots of cyclists use the route ‘2’ (Brighton through to Seaford and beyond), and when I have used the ferry a lot come across by boat (‘Avenue Verte’ I guess, but also taking a route along to Brighton). Plus of course there is the Egret’s Way due to be coming along the Ouse from Lewes. So, there is so much potential to make Newhaven a real destination, rather than just an ending point and then turn around. This could be used for Newhaven cyclists (great for wellbeing and fitness), local Sussex cyclists, and travellers from overseas. All could use our shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The existing cycle routes could be linked up to routes going out to an improved West Beach (see also other posting on this site), and also up to the fort with its fantastic panoramic views. The money could be used for bike storage, improved cycles paths and signage, and signage welcoming cyclists to Newhaven and indicating on a map the commercial and touristic gems of the town. An organisation like Sustrans could probably provide some consultation on how to such improvements: https://www.sustrans.org.uk/for-professionals/urban-design-and-planning/

  3. Yes it is difficult to walk down there when speeding cars come by. Lets, at least, find a benefit to locals for all this development. We all know that these flats will become cash deposit boxes for DFLs.
