  • Consultation on Cambridge Air Quality Action Plan

    Created by Anna Williams – Comms Officer // 1 thread

    Air quality in central Cambridge is not as good as it should be. The city is not compliant with EU limit values or UK national air quality objectives for nitrogen dioxide in the city centre and on busy roads – although it is improving slowly. The City Council's Air Quality Action Plan was approved unanimously at Environment Scrutiny Committee on March 13 and they are now opening it out to consultation (21 June - 18 September 2018).

    Many of the proposed actions are of interest to Camcycle, but in particular:

    • Reducing Heavy Goods Vehicles emissions in the city centre by promoting ‘greener’ methods for making deliveries of goods, such as by cycle or electric vehicles

    • Using planning policies to ensure new communities are designed to make it easy for people to use sustainable modes of transport

    • Improving public health by providing information about the health impacts of air quality and encouraging everyone to have a more active lifestyle, including walking and cycling

  • DEFRA consultation - ends May 8th

    Created by TJ // 1 thread

    Is the Cycling Campaign writing a response to the DEFRA consultation on how to reform the CAP post-Brexit ? Does anyone know if other (national) cycling groups have responded ?

    I was thinking that the public good of opening up private farm tracks would be beneficial to commuter and leisure cyclists. For instance I'm sure there's a farm near Grantchester which allows cyclists through, but you need special permission (live in a specific village ?). There must be other examples, where opening up to all cyclists would help commuters from villages.

    The documentation is here:

    online consultation form here:
    https://consult.defra.gov.uk/farming/future-of-farming/

    It is long winded form, but you can skip pages which you have no interest or knowledge of. However, this is the question which may be of most interest to us:

    1. How can we improve the delivery of the current Countryside Stewardship scheme and increase uptake by farmers and land managers to help achieve valuable environmental outcomes?

  • DfT Consultation - Reporting road accidents to the police

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/new-ways-to-report-road-accidents-to-the-police

    At the moment if you need to report a road traffic accident you must do so in person at a police station or to a police constable.

    This proposals in this consultation would allow police forces to offer drivers the option of submitting accident reports by other methods.

    The proposals would require changes to Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

    roadacc.stats@dft.gsi.gov.uk
    This consultation closes at 11:45pm on 24 April 2018

    Introduction
    1 Section 170 of the Road Traffic Act 1988 (“the Act”) requires drivers involved in
    certain traffic accidents which occur on the road or other public place to report the
    accident in person at a police station, or to a constable.
    2 Reporting accidents in person puts burdens on drivers, businesses and police forces.
    Therefore the Government proposes to amend the Act to allow police forces to offer
    drivers the option of submitting accident reports by other methods.
    3 We expect that, as a result of this change, police forces will offer drivers the option of
    reporting accidents online or by telephone. This will make it simpler, quicker and
    cheaper for drivers to fulfil their statutory obligation to report the accident, and for the
    police to record the accident details.

  • Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) safety review

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/cycling-and-walking-investment-strategy-cwis-safety-review

    QUOTE:

    ``Invites those with an interest in improving safety of cyclists and pedestrians to provide evidence, drawing on experience from the UK or other countries, that can be used to shape future policy decisions.

    Foreword

    Active travel, making journeys by physically active means such as cycling and walking, has huge potential benefits both for individuals and for our wider society. The Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, published in April 2017, set out our aim to make cycling and walking the natural choices for shorter journeys or as part of a longer journey.

    We have made good progress to date; Government spending on cycling trebled between 2010 and 2017, and on average people are cycling further than they did ten years ago. In some cities, notably London, there has been a sharp increase in the level of cycling. But there is much more to do, and our ambition in this review goes further still: to make cycling the natural mode of transport even for a 12 year old.

    Since the cycle safety review was announced, the Department has worked closely with cycling, walking and wider road safety organisations to identify the main issues that should be tackled as a priority to improve safety between cyclists and other road users. During that process of engagement, it became clear how many actual and potential policy areas were relevant to cyclists and pedestrians alike.

    Given our strong commitment to cycling and walking, we have therefore decided to use this review to consider safety measures that will bring cycling and walking closer together as part of our overall ambition to increase active travel.

    Cycling, like walking, needs to be universally seen as easy, fun and safe. Safety, and the perception of safety, are vital if we are to create a rapid increase in the use of active travel.

    The truth is that cycling is generally very safe, and serious accidents are rare. But we need to make it safer still, for all road users, so that it becomes a default mode of transport, whatever one’s age or background. But safety does not simply include road safety - it also includes physical health and well-being, in a clean and green environment. The evidence is clear: cycling and walking have the capacity to transform the health and well-being, not only of people who walk and cycle themselves, but of everyone in society.

    We now have a great opportunity: to recast local and national approaches to active travel, and create a new world of genuinely multimodal transport. But to do this we need your help, ideas and evidence. This consultation document summarises some of the key evidence for change, and then highlights key areas in which we are seeking your views.

    We are looking for great ideas, for evidence of what works, for examples of good practice from other countries, for innovative technologies, for imaginative solutions, and for idealism tempered with a sense of the practical. Over to you!

  • DfT consultation on Major Road Network

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/proposals-for-the-creation-of-a-major-road-network

    The latest in the government's insatiable thirst for blowing money on roads (induced demand, what's that?) might have a silver lining as one of the objectives is 'support all road users'. I think we should submit a response. Basic outline: they should apply IAN 195/16 on this proposed Major Road Network.

    Regarding Cambridge, the most immediately affected road would be the A10 north of the A14, and possibly south of Trumpington. The 'Major Road Network' in the vicinity of is the A14, M11, A11, A505 and the A10.

  • Street Cycle Parking

    Created by Simon Nuttall // 4 threads

    Motion for Camcycle AGM 2016: Street Cycle Parking

    Providing secure places to park bicycles is a simple and effective way to encourage cycling by making people on bikes feel welcome. In some areas of Cambridge residents have got used to all the spare street space being allocated to the storage of motor vehicles and very little for bikes. The result has been badly parked bikes cluttering hallways, clinging to drainpipes and other street furniture. The experience on Thoday Street where some on-carriageway racks have been installed is a good example of how the problem can be addressed.

    Camcycle resolves to:
    1. Champion the replacement of on street car parking with cycle parking where it is clearly needed
    2. Identify streets where this should and can be achieved
    3. Work with local councillors to survey demand
    4. Where there is sufficient local support work with local councillors to prepare proposals for funding. For example, from the Local Highways Improvement fund.

    This motion was passed by 46 to one.

  • Transport Strategy for East Cambridgeshire

    Created by Roxanne (Cycling Campaign Officer) // 1 thread

    What is the Draft Transport Strategy for East Cambridgeshire?

    We have drafted a transport strategy to tackle the current and future transport pressures in and around the district, and to help support growth in East Cambridgeshire. The purpose of this strategy is to:

    Provide a detailed policy framework and Action Plan of potential transport improvements for the area, addressing current problems and consistent with the policies of the third Cambridgeshire Local Transport Plan 2011-2031 (LTP3).
    Support the East Cambridgeshire Local Plan, and take account of the committed and predicted levels of growth, detailing the transport infrastructure and services necessary to deliver this growth.

    The strategy contains details of the schemes proposed in the short and medium term as well as the longer term schemes as proposed in the Long Term Transport Strategy.

    We want the views of anyone who lives, works, visits or travels through East Cambridgeshire in order to improve this draft transport strategy. Let us know your views on the strategy objectives, policies and the action plan of proposed transport improvements for the area by answering the questionnaire before the 8th April 2016.
