Manydown consultation 12th - 15th November

posted Nov 19, 2015, 12:53 PM by Heather Rainbow
Members of Cycle Basingstoke attended this event on Thursday and Friday and made contributions as to how Manydown could be made a pleasant place to cycle, whatever your age, whatever your ability, whatever your type of bike. 

We were cheered that the developer company "Beyond Green" and the urban design company were really green.  Quite a few of them cycled, they understood what cyclists needed within the development. 

They were keen to learn how cyclists could reach Manydown and the problems that needed solving, for example the path from Fiveways to Oakley  or lack of secure cycle parking at Basingstoke station.

We will be talking more about Manydown at the next Cycle Basingstoke meeting 7pm Tuesday  24 November at BCOT and will send the urban designers a map with all the access points for cyclists as well as the routes we want preserved, improved and created.
