West Sussex County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, Bob Lanzer, said: “We prioritised pavements and footways which serve clinics, hospitals, areas with high footfall and schools.

“This is after many months of inspections and assessments to decide which streets get included in the programme for a second year.

“We made a great start last year and are keen to build on that work.”

The programme is subject to change, dependent on weather and other factors.
