Question 8 - we asked:

Will you give your active support to the proposal to construct a proper cycle path linking Ashbury Close to Golding Road?

We asked this question only in Coleridge.

2 of the 4 candidates (50%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Andrew James BOWER
(Conservative Party)

I have already given active support to this proposal:


I have put the case strongly to local residents as to how the scheme is a good one but in final decision making I will only support the scheme if we have been successful in gaining the support of local residents when it eventually goes to consultation. They have to live with the consequences either way.

Valerie Teresa HOPKINS
(Green Party)

As my son has a paper round in this area I am all too aware that cycling is restricted between Ashbury Close and Golding Road. It is an ideal thru route to Mill Road and Coleridge School and keeping cyclists off the main road is preferable. I would definitely support it.
