The minutes are now online and show three possible areas that the group may focus on: social, campaigning and educational.

Local issues were identified and included:

  • Establishing a safe
    route between Chyngton and Exceat
  • NCR2 Newhaven –
    Seaford especially at Bishopstone – also signage
  • Seaford seafront
  • Safe route
    Seaford/Newhaven to Lewes
  • A259 – new
    ‘improvements’ – possibility of using section on Newhaven
    descent
  • Difficulty crossing
    A259 with kids in Chyngton area, making schools hard to reach
  • Routes to schools –
    plans and funding 
  • Bikes on trains and
    cycle parking at Seaford station
    Impermeability of
    Seaford town centre (too many one-ways)
  • Lack of cycle
    parking in Seaford town centre
  • General maintenance
    of cycle paths.
  • Improving paths in
    Friston Forest (all-weather surface, better warning of cyclists
    for pedestrians)

The next meeting is at 8pm on Tuesday 24th February 2009
at The Wellington Pub, 33 Steyne Road, Seaford.
