CllrSteveDelaneyCllr Steve Delaney (Liberal Democrat)Aberdeen City CouncilS12000033Liberal DemocratI agree the roads are too busy for most people to feel confident cycling. I tried it a few years ago, ably assisted by a friend from our local cycle forum and it was terrifying!

We are where we are with current road layout and need to be pragmatic as to what can be delivered in this respect, but where do opportunities exist to make improvements these should be done in consultation with local cycle groups.

CllrRossThomsonCllr Ross Thomson (Conservative)Aberdeen City CouncilS12000033Conservative
I am pleased to advise you that I am the City Council’s Cycling Champion and in that role over the last two years I have been working very closely with the Aberdeen Cycle Forum. We have been successful in providing more cycle parking, ensuring new developments coming forward have proper cycle facilities, we managed to ensure that some cycle routes were gritted last winter for the first time ever and that is set to continue this winter, we have significantly increased the number of schools participating in Bikeability and recently we brought a petition to the petitions committee calling for the Westhill Cycle Route to be widened and improved. On the back of that a report is now coming to a future meeting of the Council regarding those improvements which is a very positive step forward.

CllrAlisonEvisonCllr Alison Evison (Labour)Aberdeenshire CouncilS12000034LabourThis campaign matches the work of NESTRANS locally which has a vision of creating an environment in which walking and cycling are convenient, safe, comfortable, healthy and attractive travel choices for everyday journeys.

Clearly , although positive steps are being taken to seek funding for this locally, within the current climate there are many competing priorities and progress has to be looked at over the longer-term.

CllrNigelRobertsCllr Nigel Roberts (Liberal Democrat)Bath & North East Somerset CouncilE06000022Liberal DemocratI very much support that we should be spending at least £10 per head of population for Bath and North East Somerset this will be £1.8 million per year for cycling. Cycling is a vital part of our transport strategy.

CllrDavidPearsCllr David Pears (Conservative)Birmingham City CouncilE08000025ConservativeWe need to encourage to cycle to work or use public transport and need to get the infrastructure right.its not just about the roads but issues like more trains with space for bikes will help.Some roads do not have space for cycle lane in which case other avenues need to be explored such as tow paths along canals

CllrClaireSpencerCllr Claire Spencer (Labour and Co-operative)Birmingham City CouncilE08000025

We have the Cycle City Ambition project and the Birmingham Mobility Action Plan, both of which lay out our plans for cycling. I desperately want a Birmingham where people can cycle safely and confidently, and I will always consider how we can rebalance spaces to make them better for people walking and cycling.

CllrPeteWestCllr Pete West (Green Party)Brighton & Hove City CouncilE06000043Green PartyAs a Green Council administration, in line with our recognition as the world's first city committed to One Planet Living we have made multi-million pound investments in new cycle and bus lanes and pedestrian infrastructure improvements, personal travel planning and introduced widespread 20mph - all of which is together supporting growth in sustainable and active travel. The city is now a national leader in sustainable travel.
CllrLizzieDeaneCllr Lizzie Deane (Green Party)Brighton & Hove City CouncilE06000043Green PartyMany more people would cycle if they felt the streets were safer. There needs to be a greater balance of needs for alternatives to motor vehicles.
CllrTomDruittCllr Tom Druitt (Green Party)Brighton & Hove City CouncilE06000043Green PartyI am a keen cyclist and in densely populated and often congested Brighton cycling is the obvious choice. There has been a lot of improvements in recent years in cycling infrastructure but sadly some groups are becoming very anti- any cycling infrastructure if it affects road space or motorist-priority. We need to do more to win the argument that improving space for cycling improves the space for everyone. And we need to do more to improve the reputation of cyclists by not riding on pavements, running red lights, riding in the dark with no lights etc etc.
CllrMarkBradshawCllr Mark Bradshaw (Labour and Co-operative)Bristol City CouncilE06000023
Labour and Co-operative
I am very supportive of the campaign and it is very welcome given the emphasis on less confident cyclists, awareness and promoting better connected, more segregated routes. In Bristol, these are priorities for us and active work is underway to achieve these goals. As England's first Cycling City, we view this as unfinished business: we want to do more and to work across the City with neighbourhoods and cycling organisations.

CllrMartinFodorCllr Martin Fodor (Green Party)Bristol City CouncilE06000023Green PartyI welcome this report and attended the launch of the council's new Cycling Strategy. Better high quality provision for cycling is a vital part of our local transport infrastructure and will have multiple benefits for congestion, pollution, health and fitness. I am following proposals to do more in my ward and the city with interest and impatience when proposals get delayed
CllrCharlieBoltonCllr Charlie Bolton (Green Party)Bristol City CouncilE06000023Green PartyCycling is good for health, good for the environment, good for fitness, good for employers, good for employees, good fun, the quickest way to travel in a city, cuts air pollution, cuts congestion, saves money - all win, win, win.
CllrAlanQuinnCllr Alan Quinn (Labour)Bury Metropolitan Borough CouncilE08000002Labour0
CllrGrahamHallCllr Graham Hall (Conservative)Calderdale Metropolitan Borough CouncilE08000033ConservativeI fully support Space for Cycling. This makes for a cleaner air quality environment in local areas. In addition, it enables cyclists to get more regular exercise. This in turn will reduce the amount of money spent by the NHS. New cycling routes could be part financed by savings acheived from cyling creating a healthier community.
CllrDavidKirtonCllr David Kirton (Conservative)Calderdale Metropolitan Borough CouncilE08000033ConservativeAs the Tour De France is scheduled to depart on the 5th July here in Yorkshire, many more people have taken to cycling and what a great way to get and keep fit.

CllrDotFosterCllr Dot Foster (Labour)Calderdale Metropolitan Borough CouncilE08000033LabourAs a newly elected local councillor with close involvement with the CTC, l understand some of the problems faced by cyclists when competing for space on the road. To increase the numbers of cyclists on the road, and tackle some of the serious health issues in our community, it is important we make cycling safer to encourage more people to use bicycles for leisure and commuting. I fully support the Space for Cycling campaign.

CllrJudithWoodmanCllr Judith Woodman (Liberal Democrat)Cardiff County CouncilW06000015Liberal DemocratWe have cycle lanes within my ward , but need more.Sadly , there is not enough money to do all that we want , and the willingness also has to come from the council.

Children need to be taught cycling proficiency at school and that sadly is also at threat due to council finances.
CllrJosephCarterCllr Joseph Carter (Liberal Democrat)Cardiff County CouncilW06000015Liberal Democrat0
CllrJoeBoyleCllr Joe Boyle (Liberal Democrat)Cardiff County CouncilW06000015Liberal DemocratThe planned expansion of Cardiff is set to throw an even greater number of cars onto the city's already over-crowded streets. We need to break this reliance on the car but will not do so until alternative methods of transport are made more attractive. Creating space for cycling is precisely the sort of initiative needed in a city that at present does not cater sufficiently for cyclists.
CllrMaryMcGarryCllr Mary McGarry (Labour)Cardiff County CouncilW06000015LabourCardiff Council is already committed to this policy.
CllrIonaGordonCllr Iona Gordon (Labour)Cardiff County CouncilW06000015LabourI totally support CTC's Campaign to provide space for cyclists which will encourage more to get on bikes to travel around our cities. Cardiff is a flat city till the outer suburbs which rise gently. We are working out how to make it No 1 Cycling City in
the UK! Watch out Bristol and York!

CllrRalphCookCllr Ralph Cook (Labour)Cardiff County CouncilW06000015IndependentWales is generally difficult for cyclists seeing as it has long stretches of often rural roads between communities, or in South Wales ribbon development along the sides of valleys, either way cycle lanes become extremely expensive infrastructure to put in. Cardiff, being a compact urban area is finally cottoning on to the needs of cyclists and I did quite a bit to assist cyclists whilst I was the cabinet member for highways and transport.
CllrJohnJamesCllr John James (Labour)Carmarthenshire County CouncilW06000010LabourThis is an excellent initiative. More people need to be made aware of how cycling can become an everyday part of their lives.

But we need to make it as safe and as comfortable as possible to encourage this regular usage, as well as looking after the current regular users.

CllrStephenRobinsonCllr Stephen Robinson (Liberal Democrat)Chelmsford City CouncilE10000012Liberal DemocratI have long been a member of Chelmsford Cycling Action Group. I had not heard about this campaign; I would have signed up immediately if I had.

CllrLesleySmethamCllr Lesley Smetham (Conservative)Cheshire East CouncilConservativeWe have narrow, winding country roads with huge lorries using them. Not at all conducive to safe cycling, horseriding or walking and it is such a lovely area too.
CllrHowardMurrayCllr Howard Murray (Conservative)Cheshire East CouncilE06000049ConservativeWe need to build on the work already done in Poynton during the shared space revitalisation. Safer routes from the estates and national cycle paths leading to schools and the village centre; creation of 20 mph zones, supported by hard and soft engineering, in most, if not all, of the estate areas.
CllrSamCorcoranCllr Sam Corcoran (Labour and Co-operative)Cheshire East CouncilE06000049
Labour and Co-operative
Cheshire East Council's Local Plan was a missed opportunity to improve cycling provision. There were too many aspirational words and too few practical details.
The recent central hatched road markings on Congleton Road in Sandbach are bad for cyclists and show an incorrect prioritisation of lorries over bicycles in a town centre route.
The quality of the road surface in the 1 metre closest to teh kerb should receive special attention so that cyclists do no have to swerve out to avoid potholes and poor road services.
CllrIreneFaseyiCllr Irene Faseyi (Labour)Cheshire East CouncilE06000049LabourCheshire East Council should endeavour to create cycling paths on all roads in CE, as well as making it mandatory as part of applications approval on new housing developments.

CllrDavidMarrenCllr David Marren (Conservative)Cheshire East CouncilE06000049ConservativeI am completely sympathetic to the campaign for safer cycling and fully appreciate user and parental concerns as I have a grandchild just beginning to cycle. I also know from my own experience just how dangerous cycling can be because of inconsiderate drivers.

CllrSuzanneBrookfieldCllr Suzanne Brookfield (Labour)Cheshire East CouncilE06000049Labour: I am not a cyclist but it is something I would like to feel confident enough to aspire to. My own particular area is a highly densely populated area both in terms of people and vehicles. Both the moving and stationary vehicles are what troubles me as a would be cyclist.
Parked vehicles are a hazard for both the cyclist and pedestrian and this is not addressed.
More continuous cycle routes are required with clearer signage including guidelines for both the pedestrian and cyclist.
I would be supportive of no vehicle zones in urban and built up areas.
Perhaps more of our Police Officers and Police Community Support Officers could be seen to be using cycles.
CllrAndrewDawsonCllr Andrew Dawson (Conservative)Cheshire West and Chester CouncilE06000050ConservativeI have long campaigned for more and safer cycling routes in CWaC and especially in and around my community of Frodsham and will continue to do so. I wish to see safe longer distance routes along the Weaver, to Delamere Forest and linking up with other routes such as the Wirral Way. I am campaigning to see NCR5 improved in and around Frodsham and wish to see major employment sites accessible from Frodsham safely by bicycle.
