What our county councillors will do

posted May 3, 2017, 2:14 PM by Heather Rainbow
We have been delighted with the response from candidates for the County Council elections.  They have all been keen to support cycling and have come up with suggestions and ideas.  Most people have never seen the ideal type of
cycle route except in Holland or Copenhagen.
If elected Brian Simmonds (obviously a keen cyclist) would like to contact us to discuss ways to improve cycling in Basingstoke, he goes out and about round Basingstoke on his bicycle quite often.
Lucy Sloane Williams would explore opportunities for developing permissive cross country routes with good surfaces.  She is whole heartedly in favour of allocating funding to education and support for cycling.  She would support funding for feasibility studies for new cycle routes especially rural routes.
Paul Kelly had a long list of what he would do from maintenance of cycle routes and providing free cycle racks for parking to cycle training and cycle promotion on Radio Berkshire.  He had a vision of Basingstoke with  Green status, just like Bristol, a Green City with some very useful cycle lanes like the one in Camden
