Steer cy­cling strat­egy in the right di­rec­tion

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

HELP en­sure Mac­cles­field is as safe as pos­si­ble for cy­clists by get­ting in­volved with the coun­cil’s cy­cling con­sul­ta­tion.

Cheshire East Coun­cil has launched its draft cy­cling strat­egy which looks at po­ten­tial cy­cling routes, im­prov­ing bike fa­cil­i­ties within the town and pro­mot­ing the ben­e­fits of cy­cling.

Now they are look­ing for feed­back and are keen to hear from ev­ery­one, whether you ride for oc­ca­sional leisure or regularly as part of a com­mute, or if you don’t ride but would like to start.

Coun­cil­lor David Brown, deputy leader and Cab­i­net mem­ber for highways, said: “We’ve put a lot of work into this draft cy­cling strat­egy and it’s im­por­tant we get peo­ple’s views on it.

“As a coun­cil we are com­mit­ted to help­ing our res­i­dents live well and for longer, as well as mak­ing Cheshire East a green and sus­tain­able place to live.”

The sur­vey, which will take about five min­utes to com­plete, can be done online at www. cheshireeast.gov.uk/ cy­cle­con­sul­ta­tion.

Pa­per copies are also avail­able from Mac­cles­field Li­brary and the town hall.

The con­sul­ta­tion runs un­til Septem­ber 14.
