The Dorset Pub, Function Room, Malling Street
Come and discuss with local councillors plus representatives of Brighton and Hove bus company, East Sussex County Council, and local MP Maria Caulfield.
This is a public meeting and all viewpoints are welcome relating to traffic issues in the town, especially in the Phoenix Causeway, Malling Street, and Malling Hill area... including safety, parking, public transport, local business needs, pedestrian crossings, and so on.
Thank you to The Dorset Pub for accommodating this meeting.

Boycott on Maria's appearance alone! When has she ever shown her face in Lewes affairs. 'Public meeting' - but who or what are running the show? Which local councillors? Who will be representing ESCC? why emphasis on Malling? I smell election fever. What about Station street, Prison cross roads etc etc. I smell a rat not traffic pollution.

ESCC already running a public consultation on this. See their website. Is this only for Bridge ward-seems like it. ESCC consultation is Lewes-wide. Not all councillors seem to have been told or invited until this posy today.

Do we know who has organised this? Why has there been such little notice and no published agenda? I'm very close to organising a protest and a boycott this morning given that the Tory party, the Tory County Council and a massive privatised public transport company appear to be the only entities mentioned as attending so far. Where are cyclists groups? No platform for the Nasty Party in Lewes! And why in a pub? Many people in minority groups feel intimidated in a place that sells alcohol. Why are they being excluded? Oversight or a deliberate policy? Details, please.

Everyone is very welcome. We have been communicating with all local councillors about these issues over the last three years. There is no political bias, we want solutions that work for everyone. It was focused on the A26 area but the issues affect the whole of Lewes. ESCC were invited, as were local police, who we have also worked with over the last three years. It is better to have an MP attend than not all, whatever the politics they endorse. If you object come and make your views known. We had no idea about an ESCC survey. Great idea. Do you have the link as many of us don't seem to know about it. Thanks.

You couldn't be more wrong. The person running this has no political agenda. Has tried with no success to get ESCC interested in the traffic problem in Malling. ORiginally intended the meeting to be for Malling residents but realised the issues affected the whole town. Why not come along and try to help. Only someone trying their best.

Why the ridiculously short notice of a meeting? Were Malling residents
dents informed prior to this posting? All Lewes residents should have been informed... I'm waiting for feedback from what seems a somewhat cosy arrangement. Public meeting???

Dick - good to see you see all this through the point of view of a driver.
What about improving the experiences of pedestrians, particularly on the High Street / School Hill?

I was there. Nothing cosy about it - I saw the post on here and went along at exceedingly short notice. When the email summary arrives I'll share it on here. Meanwhile, it was notable that, of the organisations that were meant to send a representative, Sussex Police were conspicuously absent.
