Living Streets Cambridge was set up in September 2020 as a local branch of the national walking charity. They began with a survey on the conditions for walking in Cambridge and have recently collaborated with Cam Sight and the RNIB on a campaign highlighting the problem of pavement parking. David Stoughton who leads the group talks about its achievements and challenges so far and answers questions from Camcycle members and supporters.
The meeting also includes a round-up of the latest cycling news and campaigns from Camcycle’s Executive Director, Roxanne De Beaux.
The next Camcycle meeting will be held online on Tuesday 3 May. Our guest speaker is Filip Watteeuw, Deputy Mayor of Ghent. Filip was the man behind Ghent’s innovative traffic circulation plan and will be talking about how the changes implemented have transformed the city. Could we do something like this for Cambridge? Watch live on our Facebook channel from 7pm.
