Presentation AGM 2018 city4kids

  1. 1. City4kids Manifesto
  2. 2. Newcastle Fit for Cycling Bid Document available at https://www.newcastle.gov.uk/parking-roads-and-transport/cycling/newcastle-fit-cycling- cycle-city-ambition-fund-bid Let’s see what Susie’s journey is like in 2018…
  3. 3. Sadly, in 2018 Susie is still not cycling to school or to work or to the shops. She is disappointed at the lack of progress at her children’s school. Rat running traffic hasn’t been reduced. Susie’s local shopping street has seen some improvements for pedestrians but she’s still not confident about cycling here or allowing her son to cycle to school this way. He will soon be going to secondary school. There is no bus to take him and it is too far to walk. Susie is resigned to taking him in the car.
  4. 4. Susie isn’t cycling to work either. Her route to the office where she works still doesn’t have cycle lanes. There is one short section of cycle route in the city centre which means that at weekends she can go shopping on Northumberland Street. She enjoys this but doesn’t do it very often because it is still easier to drive and park. Susie feels bad about this because she knows that air pollution is very high in the city centre and notices her son’s asthma gets worse when they visit. Susie doesn’t understand why all of the plans she’s been sent by the council haven’t come to fruition. They haven’t given any explanation for this.
  5. 5. EMBARGO 25 March 2018 - LAUNCH AT AGM 1 Newcastle bikelife report, and general segmentation studies for example Anable cit y4kids So that children and parents can travel in safety and comfort Newcastle Council policy highlights the problem of young families leaving the city. To stop this flight, we must see decisive action. How can we, together, create a city that parents and children choose to live, grow up and thrive in? Currently our roads are polluting, fast and hostile. Newcastle’s transport system must diversify and offer alternatives to the private car. For kids to travel independently we must build cycleways and design neighbourhoods to live and play. This is what people want1 . Many have told us that cycling with children feels dangerous and often attracts harassment. This situation must be changed. People who are trying to do the right thing should be rewarded. We ask officials to take action. It is the Council that holds the power to transform our built environment. We want our Councillors to 1) form a city4kids design & implementation group, to ensure rigour in process, through Health / Equality Impact Assessments, a scrutiny/select committee and reviewing the highway appraisal procedure 2) appoint an urban design expert to instruct and oversee implementation, and guide and advise the council on matters of community and collaboration 3) seek support from, and work actively with, civic society groups 4) make sure council engineers and planners deliver child-friendly designs We do this for our kids, for Newcastle’s bright future.
