We encourage campaign members to attend council meetings to find out more about local developments and speak up on behalf of active travel.
Planning Committee and Area Committee meetings often include cycling and walking issues. Development Control Forum and Joint Development Control Committee meetings determine planning applications relating to major housing development proposals.
