EASTBOURNE Borough Council is urging is all: Do not cycle on Eastbourne promenade.

It issued this statement yesterday: “Bye-laws remain in place prohibiting the use of an any mechanised transport on the promenade.

This includes bicycles, tricycles, electric scooters and electric skateboards.

The exceptions to the bye-law are mobility devices and authorised vehicles.

Our Neighbourhood Advisors conduct joint patrols with East Sussex Police in order to reduce this activity, but they can’t be there at all times.

Please be responsible and respect others by dismounting in these areas.”
