Elections

« Back to list of all 8 questions for this election

Question 1 - we asked:

Cambridge Cycling Campaign has created a guide to cycling best-practice called Making Space For Cycling, endorsed by all national cycling organisations. Do you fully support this guide, and if so, what one principle in it do you think could most effectively be applied in your ward?

We asked this question:

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

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

Heidi Suzanne ALLEN
(Conservative Party)

I do support the guide - for South Cambs it's critical we link key commuter routes. To ease congestion on our over burdened roads, we need to join the City with villages, villages with transport connections and also with employment and retail locations. Too many of our villages are cut off.

Daniel GREEF
(Labour Party)

I do fully support this guide. It was a very good read.
I'm a big fan of traditional street layouts over cul-de-sac housing developments. I agree that these are much better for the community and would really encourage cyclist to use the roads/cycle paths. I would like to see Northstowe develop in this way so that that it becomes a community focused development and to show people that cycling is a very viable option.

Sebastian Gerald Molesworth KINDERSLEY
(Liberal Democrat)

I fully support the Guide. From a South Cambs perspective the principle regarding major roads between urban areas is the key - assuming it includes villages! We really need to grasp that not only do cyclists want to get into Cambridge but they also want to get from village to village - from home to work, or home to school.

Camcycle is a non-partisan body. All candidates are given an equal opportunity to submit their views. Information published by Camcycle (Cambridge Cycling Campaign), The Bike Depot, 140 Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0DL.
