We hope you can join us for Lambeth Cyclists' meeting this evening (19 November 2013) 7:30pm at the Effra Social. We are usually in the room to the right of the entrance or at one of the tables at the front of the pub, ask if you cant see us!
We will be joined at our meeting by Amy Summers, newly appointed LCC Activism Coordinator who will be talking about LCC central campaigns especially the one leading up to the local elections in May 2014 and how our local campaigning can complement the main LCC campaign focus.
LCC have identified six policy they they suggest focusing on, identifying specific targets within each ward to determine prospective Councillors' views about, and seek a commitment to achieving the changes:
- Safe routes for schoolchildren
- Streets without through motor traffic
- Dedicated space on main roads
- 20mph speed limits
- Liveable town centres
We will be talking about how these apply to Lambeth
We will also be looking at other developments in cycling in the borough including the Space4Cycling protests, the new TfL cycle superhighway under construction in Kennington and forthcominbg events. The meeting will be followed from approximately 8:30 onwards by drinks - it would be great to see you for all or just the second part of the meeting.
