1.1.3

Representation ID: 32117

Received: 06/11/2017

Respondent: Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Representation:

At least one key stakeholder, Camcycle, was not invited to the workshop. The consultation with the Cycling Stakeholders Group also took place after the opening of this SPD consultation, too late to have any effect. That group found various problems with the proposals which could have been resolved prior to issuing the SPD for consultation.

Respondent: Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Representation:

Camcycle support the principle of finding a way to create a safe and inclusive cycle route on Fitzroy and Burleigh Streets.

The existing cycle lanes on East and Newmarket Roads are very poor quality and must be improved as well.

We will seek protected cycleways on East and Newmarket Roads.

Regarding cycling in pedestrianised areas, Manual for Streets 2 guidance states that, on the basis of research, there are no real factors to justify excluding cyclists from pedestrianised areas and that cycling can be widely permitted without detriment to pedestrians

We will seek protected cycleways on East and Newmarket Roads.

Regarding cycling in pedestrianised areas, Manual For Streets 2 guidance states: "2.3.12 Advice on this issue is set out in TAL 9/93 'Cycling in Pedestrian Areas'. This emphasises that, on the basis of research, there are no real factors to justify excluding cyclists from pedestrianised areas and that cycling can be widely permitted without detriment to pedestrians. This was confirmed by TRL report 583 'Cycling in Vehicle Restricted Areas' (2003)11 which established that cyclists alter their behaviour according to the density of pedestrian traffic by modifying their speed or dismounting."

Respondent: Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Representation:

Cycle parking is very heavily used and needs to be increased in number while keeping it in convenient locations. There should be cycle parking available for people using tricycles and cargo-cycles, as well as prioritised spaces for adapted-cycles that are used by persons with disabilities.

4.2.18

Representation ID: 32126

Received: 06/11/2017

Respondent: Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Representation:

The language is not strong enough against on-street servicing, particularly from East Road. Currently, on-street deliveries to East Road Tesco Express block the cycle lane with a dangerous vehicle. Those deliveries could be made behind the building from the car park, but there is not a sufficient enforcement mechanism. This paragraph should contain stronger language against delivery vans parking in cycle lanes.

Respondent: Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Representation:

We support an increase in cycle parking provision. We also recommend that inclusive cycle parking requirements be added to the SPD: cycle parking for tricycles, cargo-cycles and adapted-cycles used by persons with disabilities. This would be for both long stay and short stay.

Received: 06/11/2017

Respondent: Cambridge Cycling Campaign

Representation:

We support convenient locations for short-stay cycle parking and would suggest investigating the side-street entrance plazas as another set of sites with potential. This could include cycle parking on the side streets: replacing on-street car parking spaces with on-street cycle parking racks. We also recommend that inclusive cycle parking requirements be added to the SPD: cycle parking for cargo cycles and adapted cycles for persons with disabilities. This would be for both long stay and short stay.
