In the run up to the 2014 Lambeth Council elections we will once again be holding a sustainable transport hustings meeting, provisionally scheduled for 30 April 2014, at which we as cyclists will be able to question the parties and find out what plans they have for cycling in Lambeth as well as questions of broader sustainable transport.
Cycling is supported by all the main political parties in Lambeth but there are differences of opinion in how far the council should go in encouraging cycling. It is useful to find out exactly where each party stands.
The hustings event provides us with an excellent opportunity to raise cycling and transport issues and build alliances in all of the political parties. These set the scene and bring long-term benefits– current council leader Lib Peck for example came along as Labour Environment spokesperson to our hustings before the 2006 elections.
Further details soon
