Do you support the Prime Minister's statement that cycle provision should be designed in to all new road schemes from the beginning? How would you support this?

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)

Yes - especially relevant in Cambs. As an MP I would be heavily involved in the detail of all major planning applications eg Northstowe. We need to get them right - need better transport links than eg Cambourne.

Daniel GREEF
(Labour Party)

I hate to say I agree with the PM but this is a very good idea. Councils should implement these within applications. As long as this was implemented safely then I fully support it.

Sebastian Gerald Molesworth KINDERSLEY
(Liberal Democrat)

Completely agree. I'd support it by making sure that officers and developers were made aware of it, ensured that it was in the relevant local Plans and that applications that didn't address the issue properly were refused.
