Sandlings Safer Cycling Campaign


A group set up to campaign for the provision of safer cycle and pedestrian routes in the area known as the Suffolk Sandlings.

Our initial aim is to see the towns and villages of Aldeburgh, Saxmundham, Thorpeness, Aldringham, Knodishall, Snape, Friston, Leiston, Sizewell, Westleton and Eastbridge linked together with safe, preferably off-road, cycle-friendly routes.  These, in turn, may link with other routes further afield like Walberswick and Southwold.

To this end we have entered into dialogue with officers and councillors at Suffolk County Council, Suffolk Coastal District Council, the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Unit, the various parishes, the consultants engaged in the development of Sizewell C nuclear power station and various land owners and businesses.

We are pleased to acknowledge having received funding from Groundwork, The Britten-Pears Foundation and our the Waitrose Community Matters green token box scheme.



We are pleased to report that after years of campaigning, on 7 March 2017 the Suffolk County Council Rights of Way Committee approved the making of the new limit along the Aldeburgh-Leiston road.  We acknowledge the help of SCC Councillor Richard Smith who directed some of his Locality Budget funds towards this project.   The speed resriction took effect in late May.

WE NOW HAVE TWO LOCAL ROUTE GUIDES PUBLISHED - see the "Campaign Publications" page.
