We’re delighted to share two new sections of our website with you today, to help you learn more about what good design looks like for cycling, and who makes the decisions for cycling in Gloucestershire.
What good design looks like
Creating an effective cycling network takes a lot more than just building a couple of cycle lanes.
On our new ‘Building a high quality cycle environment‘, you’ll find links to current strategic requirements, design guidance and other resources to get you thinking.
We lead this page with the headline requirement of Gear Change, the Department for Transport strategy for cycling, which says;
“Cycling is or will become mass transit and must be treated as such”
Who makes the decisions
We want to make it easier for members and local residents to understand “who is making the decisions?” affecting cycling in Gloucestershire.
It gives you a zoomable map, where you can click on any location in the county and find out who the local county councillor with responsible for highways is for that area.
We also give you links to key council meetings and papers, as well as details on how to find out the roles of the county’s cabinet, district councillors, members of parliament, the police and the office of the police and crime commissioner.
