Transport Strategy Consultation Launched by BCC

posted 20 Jan 2016, 14:30 by Eli Kling

BCC's current 5 year transport strategy, LTP3 ends this year and a draft strategy, LTP4, has recently been published and can be viewed on BCC "have your say" website page. Public consultation runs until 29th January.

The document covers all types of transport looking ahead to the year 2036. Previous transport plans covered a much shorter time span and contained specific targets and plans. The new plan covering a 20 year period is as a consequence more a visionary blueprint with no specific targets or spending commitments. This approach is understandable when future government funding for transport, even in the short term, is probably not yet known and likely to be significantly reduced.

Cycling is covered in detail (pages 45,46 and47), the benefits to health and the environment being recognised. Only time will tell whether detailed plans are created and funds made available for the necessary work.

GWC encourages you to look at this draft and use the opportunity to comment on the overall plan and on cycling in particular.

Get Wendover Cycling Up Date AGM Notice

posted 7 Jan 2016, 13:25 by Eli Kling

As detailed in a news item last year GWC committee decided in future to adopt a reactive approach to local cycling issues rather than proactive. As a consequence formal committee meetings have not taken place but informal contact maintained on a needs to basis. Existing projects have been progressed. Our website, is still current and our bank account has been maintained.

Our constitution still stands and this requires the group to have an AGM, now fixed for February 4th. As on previous occasions it will be held at 64A Lionel Ave, Wendover, time 19.30, open to members and non-members.

Please come along to find out what has been achieved, future objectives, one of which will clearly be the problems the group faces in maintaining active support. If you would like to get involved and are thinking of attending, please contact our Chair, Chris Peeler,
