SCATE is a network of like minded people and organisations that have signed up to the following objectives:
- Promote sustainable transport solutions (for personal travel and freight)
- Seek better land use, infrastructure and transport planning to reduce the need to travel and dependence on the private car
- Oppose damaging road-building schemes along the south coast corridor
- Ensure that the environment is properly valued (for its contribution to the economy and human health) and that full consideration in particular is given to impacts on landscape, biodiversity and climate change in all decision making.
It is particularly concerned about the impact of expanding the A27 on local communities and the South Downs National Park and wants to see cheaper and less damaging solutions pursued first with road building as a last resort.
