Petition plea for a new surface to eliminate Cabbage Walk hazards in Lewes

Share this article

Residents are being invited to sign a petition calling for action on a “dangerous” pedestrian route in Lewes.

It has been organised by Sarah-Jane Penfold and asks for the path known as Cabbage Walk to be resurfaced.

The route, between the Landport Estate and Pells areas, is now particularly uneven and riddled with potholes.

Cllr Ruth O’Keeffe said: “This is a popular pathway, perhaps used by hundreds of people on a daily basis. But it desperately needs resurfacing.

“Cabbage Walk has become dangerous for pedestrians, especially people on mobility scooters or mums with pushchairs.

“I know the Landport Residents’ Association would really like to see this sorted out and it would cost about £3,000 to apply a new Tarmac surface.”

The petition can be signed at Landport Foodstore and it is hoped to have a copy available at Pells Primary School.

Cllr O’Keeffe will present it at a meeting of East Sussex County Council on July 16.
