Wednesday 13 November, 7.30-9pm, Royal Oak Pub (upstairs room), Station Street, Lewes
Come and hear about what Cycle Lewes has been doing over the past 12 months in its campaign for better cycling provision across the town and help shape what it does over the coming year.
Many Lewes residents want to cycle or cycle more, but are often discouraged from doing so by speeding traffic, too few dedicated cycle paths, poor signage, and limited pedestrian/cycle prioritised areas.
The good news is that Lewes District Council is now led by a cooperative alliance that’s committed to sustainable transport. Meanwhile, Lewes Town Council has established its own transport committee. So now is a great time to campaign for the change that cyclists would like to see. However, East Sussex County Council is in charge of transport, so influence also needs to be brought to bear on its transport policy and plans.
The Cycle Lewes AGM is an opportunity for you to say what you think the group should be doing to secure safer and easier cycling, including priorities in its Strategy for Lewes.
The formal AGM will be followed by a presentation by Councillor Matthew Bird, Cabinet Lead for Sustainability at Lewes District Council, on his vision for cycling in Lewes and the wider Lewes District.
