Campaign priorities 2017 18 draft

  1. 1. newcycling Newcastle’s cycling campaign Mapping the future AGM 2017 1 April – Commercial Union House
  2. 2. Our vision “Every modern liveable city has embraced cycling – an inexpensive quick means of active transport, which is inclusive, green and healthy. And our aspiration for Newcastle is just that. We are looking to learn from cycle cities like Copenhagen and Amsterdam. We know from speaking to local people, that many don’t cycle because of the aggressive traffic and road environments. Yet, many like the idea of getting around by bike. Together we are asking for better cycling conditions and more dedicated space for cycling.” Photograph: Daliel Mallo
  3. 3. Our campaign priorities Network and Quality 1. In 2017/18 we will continue to campaign for the council to adopt a mapped out network plan into policy WHY? Without such a master plan, the development of cycling infrastructure will remain ad-hoc and an after-thought 2. We will campaign for the adoption of Sustainable Safety principles (Dutch system of road safety) and high quality infrastructure WHY? It is vitally important that what gets built is of good enough quality for new people, of all ages and abilities
  4. 4. Our campaign priorities (cont) The primary network - as we see it 9+2
  5. 5. Our campaign priorities (cont) The network on the map We will campaign for the primary network (strategic cycle routes) and a secondary network to be mapped out and written into council policy This will help prioritise future investment and aid planning
