Since the late summer of 2019, we have been working with the South Downs National Park on the Missing Links Project. The good news is that the National Park are keen to implement a GIS mapping system. However, we have had some hold-ups, the main one being during the first Covid lockdown in the early spring of 2020 when the National Park could not progress things. This caused a nine-month delay. We are now up and running again as resources have been found to carry out the work. Great news!

With the way forward now more certain, all the hard work carried out by volunteers from the various organisations who carried out surveys in 2019 and 2020, can now be reviewed and transferred to the GIS mapping system. This is marvellous news for all the organisations that have contributed to the project. They include: Mid Sussex Bridleways Access Group (British Horse Society), Cycle Lewes, Cycle Seahaven, Friends of Lewes, Cycling UK (Hampshire), Sustrans West Sussex, Transport Action Network, Adur and Worthing Cycling, Friends of the Earth and Lewes Living Streets as well as cycle shops such as Bespoke Cycling Eastbourne, CTC Cycling club members and Mr Cycles.
South Downs Network (SDN) continue to coordinate the project with the help of the Friends of the South Downs and the SCATE (South Coast Alliance for Transport and the Environment)
