Right to Ride Report August 2019

1.  The Chester Northgate development on St Martins Way has entered the next stage of planning. It is now acknowledged that the comments made by Cycle UK and others regarding cycle provision require a revision of the locations for cycle storage. Commenting early on planning consultations certainly pays dividends.

2. The Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan for Cheshire West and Chester Council is now being developed by consultants, WSP, who are using transport planners sympathetic to the requirements of cyclists. It is due to be complete by the end of November and there is a schedule of meetings or workshops to enable this target to be met. Cycling UK is one of five stakeholders attending and we are making a significant input, although unfortunately we have had little information from members to the east of the Borough. During August the project has recorded all current desired routes and trip generators eg Chester to Airbus at Broughton. The plan will extend across the whole of the borough of CWAC. Cycle routes will be based on being safe enough for an unaccompanied 12 year old to cycle in safety. It will also link with routes at neighbouring authorities. In this respect WSP have been the consultants for the plans at both Wirral and Cheshire East which is fortuitous.

3.   Chester cycle shops are finding that 30% of sales during the summer have been for electric bikes.
