Goldsmid ward is home to the Old Shoreham Road separated cycle lane, which is a fine example of the sort of thing we could be looking at in other parts of the city.

Part of the ward includes the Hove Station Neighbourhood Forum, which – in the face of substantial potential development around the Hove Station area, is currently putting together a Neighbourhood Plan. Their vision for the area includes a focus on sustainable transport, greater permeability for walking and cycling, and restraint/restriction for motor traffic through the area using strategies of filtered permeability, speed reduction and shared space. The Neighbourhood Plan is a work in progress and may be of great interest to any cyclists living in the area or regularly passing through. To find out about the Forum, look HERE
