Spokes rides and events
Our next ride will be held in November - details will be available shortly
Save Wincheap Water Meadows
Spokes committee strongly opposes the proposed expansion of the Wincheap park and ride to include part of the Stour marshes. Crunch time is Tuesday 15 October when the Council's planning committee will meet at 6.30pm at the Guildhall to decide whether to approve the council's own application to extend the Wincheap park and ride onto Wincheap Meadows.
If you can, please attend that meeting in order to show councillors the strength of feeling about this issue. Also, if you are able, join members and supporters of Love Hambrook Marshes beforehand for a demonstration in Westgate Grove at 5.45pm and then at 6pm to hear Richard Navarro sing Leave Them Be.
Click here to watch the video, which totally discredits the planning officers' claim that the proposed development would 'reflect the commercial and urbanised context to the south of the site' and therefore won't have a significant impact on the landscape.
Two Love Hambrook Marshes trustees have been granted permission to speak for three minutes before the councillors debate the matter.
Please download the flyer and forward or copy to as many people as possible.
