Weekly update – 8th April

Our weekly campaigning update.

Reach Ride ‘thank you’ to volunteers

A huge thanks to the many volunteers who have helped to distribute our Reach Ride leaflets throughout Cambridge and beyond. If you would like to help with more distribution or to marshal on the day please let us know.

Petition for new approach to on-street parking

Smarter Cambridge Transport has launched a petition to demonstrate support for a new approach to on-street parking in Cambridge. This follows publication of a paper setting out how on-street parking is not just about people being able to park close to their homes; it's about safety for people walking and cycling, fair access to a limited communal asset, and the right to clean air. Free commuter parking contributes to congestion and pollution, and it undermines public transport, including park-and-ride and rural bus services.

You can find the paper, a link to the petition, and a form to contact your county councillor on the Smarter Cambridge Website.

Mill Road Co-op Forecourt Consultation

Conversation continues about the design for the Mill Road Co-op design. One common thread is that the designscurrently up for consultation are inadequate for all users and are do not meet the earlier aspirations for this area. Can you help us draft a Campaign response to the consultations which close on the 11th of April?

In the News

In this week’s life in the cycle lane Robin comments on some of the interesting April Fools ideas for cycling.
