Situation

We need to ensure that the various infrastructure projects in Cambridge meet the standards required for safe and accessible cycling, thereby further increasing the number of people who can cycle. There is huge demand on our organisation to provide our expertise, to participate in consultations and to work with the community and developers to enable cycling projects to meet the standards now expected in Cambridge.

Solution

We will participate in consultations, respond to planning applications, meet with developers, attend events and speak with members of the public. We will produce campaigning materials such as leaflets, brochures and policy papers to support our campaigning activities. We will raise the profile of cycling by organising positive events. We need to keep investing in our employees and volunteers and maintain our space to meet, discuss and work.
