Question 2 - we asked:

Cambridge suffers from a huge shortage of on-street public cycle parking, and a staggeringly high rate of cycle theft - 10% of reported crime. Do you support mandatory inclusion of on-street cycle parking as part of any car club scheme that is introduced in Cambridge?

We asked this question only in Romsey.

3 of the 5 candidates (60%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Jesse Liam GRIFFITHS
(Green Party)

Yes, but I think it should happen regardless of being linked to the car club scheme.

Jonathan Hugh GOODACRE
(Labour Party)

I don't know enough about how the proposed Car Scheme would actually work to give an informed answer about this. My initial response is that the cycle parking issue needs to be tackled anyway (see my answer in 2 above) and if the right number of spaces, stands etc are provided the compulsory inclusion wouldn't be required. However, I would want to reserve judgement on this until I know more about the Car Scheme proposals.

Tom WOODCOCK
(Respect)

Yes - please also see answer to question 2
