This page keeps you up to date with our Space for Cycling local campaigning. The campaign is co-ordinated nationally by Cycling UK and in London by LCC.
County Council Elections - we have issued a briefing to our members and to Conservative, Green, Labour and Liberal Democrat candidates. We have already had positive feedback from several candidates, we will update this page shortly. The briefing is attached to this page or click the link to download STACC canvassing briefing v2.pdf
Space for Cycling Roadshow workshops for campaigners were held over the autumn and winter. It is well worthwhile looking at the diary of reports on the workshops they were all different, so the sum of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. STACC went to the one in Southwark in late January.
Our Space for Cycling briefing document was issued to our ten ward County Councillors in August 2016, along with the Faculty of Public Health briefing on Air Pollution mitigation. Our Space for Cycling briefing can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
Air pollution from motor vehicles is a significant argument in favour of cycling and walking. The talk on Air Pollution given by Professor Martin Williams at the 2016 STACC AGM made this very clear, and you can download the slides from the bottom of this page also.
Forty percent of Hertfordshire County Councillors who have already signed up represent St Albans district wards - well done us! Let's get the other six on board! The Cycling UK councillor sign-up tool and map make contacting the councillors very easy.
Small cycling schemes - STACC is maintaining a list of schemes suitable for County Councillor locality funding. The 'top 50' are listed in the Space for Cycling Briefing. Email us with any suggestions for additions to the list.
