Update on the progress of Kent's Local Sustainable transport Bid and on progress on the River Dour Greenway and need for updating of Dover Cycling Plan.

Special Guest Speaker Steve Fawke chair of Spokes, and Speaker for Sustrans, on how these organisations work to combat car culture - the successes we've had in Britain with rural shared use paths and the need for more to be done on urban
