No new roads!
It’s not just Combe Haven that is under threat: all over the country, plans are afoot to build £30bn of new roads. It’s time to say NO!
A national event in Combe Haven
Come to the Combe Haven valley on Saturday July 13 to raise the alarm about Government plans for a massive programme of new roads. Join campaigners from across the UK for a rally and walk along the route of the most destructive and fiercely opposed new road being built in England – the £100 million Bexhill-Hastings Link Road.
Organised by the Roads to Nowhere campaign at Campaign for Better Transport, the Hastings Alliance and the Combe Haven Defenders. Supported by Greenpeace, the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), CPRE Sussex, RSPB.
The rally will take place on Crowhurst recreation ground from 2-5pm. There will be speakers, music and poetry, food and drink and activities for all ages. In addition, there will be walks across the valley from various localities, conducted by knowledgeable local campaigners.
