Aspirations for Cycle Transport in Derby

On 17th October 2017, we presented our vision for how Derby can plan to grow cycling as a means of everyday transport across the city to the city council – lead  Active Travel Forum.

Our presentation defines how Derby Cycling Group would like to see the forthcoming Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) shape up in Derby and Derbyshire. We are worried that progress towards defining the aspiration for our LCWIP is too slow when we all know what needs to be done, we just need to get on and do it.

Local authorities must have a LCWIP before they can apply for funding for active travel projects (cycling and walking) from the government. Funding for active travel is now becoming available through various government sources, so it is essential that Derby and Derbyshire has a good LCWIP so we can bid for this money.

You can view our presentation using the PDF link below.                 DCG Benchmarking and Standards for Cycling Infrastructure . Because it’s PDF you don’t see the photo slides in the middle section as they were presented, so apologies for that.

We will be discussing our ideas, policies and strategies regarding LCWIP at our monthly members meetings. If you would like to hear more or get involved, do come along and join in. You can also contribute by e-mailing campaigns@derbycyclinggroup.org.uk .
