25 February 2011. The next Save The Drive Cycle lane protest will meet outside Hove Town Hall (Norton Road Hove) - 3pm, 3rd March. As well as asking the council to end plans to scrap The Drive cycle lanes, the protest seeks to get change in policy toward cycling. The past year has seen cancellation of two important cycle lanes and in January the administration tried to repeal the council's commitment to "promoting modal shift" in sustainable transport.
Cyclists will cycle to Brighton Town hall, a couple of miles away, to join a multi-platform protest against the Council budget plans. (Stop the Cuts protest will meet 3pm at Kings House, march to Brighton Town Hall for 4pm).
