title: Improve cycling routes and rider safety. Discourage car use. Improve cycling routes around Eastleigh by improving cycling routes, cannibalising existing road space where necessary. Reducing overall traffic speeds via both changing maximum speeds and traffic management infrastructure. Discourage the use of cars by implementing a highly effective Park and Ride and cutting back on parking, especially free parking.

Note: hopefully everything is now working well enough for early adopters to make a start writing a manifesto, although there are still likely to be some rough edges! If you find any problems, or if things don't make sense, please open an issue.

The first manifesto policy wasn't visible so moving it to a transport section on the main page

Dedicated cycle ways & priory for cyclists over road uses.

Two elements: 1) cycling as the last mile alternative to aid the commute & school run. So putting bikes onto our trains & dare I say it.. buses.

2) cycling for pleasure - using the borough as a gateway into the South Downs National Park - open up the rural hinterland- improve awareness of bridleways.

Hi @coops257, thanks very much for leaving a comment! Would you be up for submitting it as a new proposal? (This change was just to tidy up a previous proposal since it didn't show up on the main page.)

If you would like to submit a proposal but get stuck, just let me know. There are some clues in this twitter thread but I should really try and write it up somewhere properly! https://twitter.com/jtonline/status/1234182711704768512?s=19

Final call for objections before this change is added to the manifesto.
