Sustainable Chesham Zone-9 Cycling Group Update 28/11/2020
Sustainable Chesham Zone-9 Cycling Group
We believe that a Cycling Hub should be established in the town as soon as possible. To this end, and in view of the urgency, a submission has been made to the Chesham Masterplan on this point, setting out what is required. We have written a cycling hub document.
In the map you should be able to see [i] a possible route to the station from the top of Nashleigh Hill [ii] a route up through Lowndes park to the school at the top (thus encouraging more pupils/students/staff, ancillary staff etc. to cycle to the school) [iii] routes that link to the Amersham Road cycle path and Waterside [iv] plus a few other suggestions.
According to the main UK cycling organisation, Cycling UK, “£225m has been made available in England alongside revised statutory guidance for local authorities that makes it clear that local authorities are expected to use their powers to implement temporary measures such as pop up cycle lanes to enable more people to walk and cycle safely.”
