In January 2016 we worked with Living Streets on a community street audit in part of Hassocks with a  report available below, which. deals with specific issues on the west side of town (e.g. Stonepound crossroads) that make life difficult for pedestrians, and also some of the bigger issues about the impact of traffic across the village. HKD Transition is keen to make it easier for people to walk and cycle, and leave their cars at home.
