We demand that the use of glyphosate along Hastings pavements, roadsides and green spaces is banned. We call on East Sussex County Council to immediately stop using glyphosate in these areas, and ask Hastings Borough Council to commit to banning the use of pesticides in our town's green spaces and put pressure on ESCC to stop it's use on pavements and roads.
Glyphosate is a danger to human and animal health and the current method of spraying from a mini tractor is in any case ineffective against persistent weeds. Any removal of weeds should be delayed until after flowering so insects can benefit from the flowers. The Pesticides Action Network states that over 40 councils have banned the use of Glyphosate. It is time for ESCC to follow suit.
At the same time both councils should make a commitment to the No Mow May campaign conducted by Plantlife to enhance the biodiversity of our roadside verges except for areas where visibility is essential at for example road junctions.

Join Hastings Green Party for the second of our online meetings on the theme of how we can shape a fairer, greener future for the UK and how getting local Green councillors elected is part of that vision.
Holly Rose, who is a member of the Hastings & Rye Green Party, Development Manager at GPEW, and Kiss The Ground Ambassador for the UK, will be joining us Tuesday, 28 July at 7PM to share some of the work The Green Party is doing on 'Project Together', and how you can get involved in the Theory of Change the national Green Party is working on. She will also share some of the information gleaned on how to get Greens elected in Hastings and answer questions about what Caroline Lucas is up to with Project Reset.
Reset is a chance for your voice to be heard, so that you can help shape a fairer, greener, future for the UK. Supported by a group of MPs from across the political spectrum, Reset aims to seize this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all of us to listen, reflect, plan and act – together – to bring about real and lasting change.
