Not owning a car is a great way to stay fit, save money, and avoid loads of hassle. This is a blog with thoughts, photos, ideas and links about carfree life: walking, active travel, public transport, places and spaces - things that matter to everyone, but even more when you don’t own a car. Photos are by me unless credited. Forthcoming: book on carfree life. Meantime, get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Twitter @carfreebrighton

East Street, Old Town, Brighton: Support Option A
An earlier post (20 Feb) was too optimistic about Brighton’s East Street. So far, the only bit that has been closed to vehicle traffic is a short stretch which links to the seafront, and there’s a new crossing over King’s Road which means you can get to the beach without negotiating a guard-railed sheep-pen in the middle of the road. The good news is in the Brighton Old Town proposals covered on 24.5.12. If Option A gets the go-ahead, and restricted vehicle access is adopted, East Street will become part of a core pedestrianised area in the historic centre of Brighton. As the map shows, it’s important to support Option A on the council’s website.
