If you do one thing today, please let it be this…

East Sussex County Council successfully bid for funding for pop-up cycling/walking facilities, including a cycle lane along the seafront instead of car parking on the sea-wall side. There is an ORCHESTRATED CAMPAIGN from a few people/organisations objecting to ANY cycle lane on the seafront. If no work starts, the money GOES BACK TO GOVERNMENT. Please write to your Councillor and ESCC and say why you personally want a pop-up cycle lane.

 Dear … 

I am emailing to give my full support to a pop-up cycle lane along the sea-wall side of Eastbourne seafront, in place of car parking. I also support creation of other cycle paths throughout Eastbourne.

Then add something personal…

This is needed for people’s health and converting a few car trips to cycling would reduce congestion and pollution.
