Vote Bike on 4th May 2023!

Borough and district council elections are next Thursday and we would love to see more cycling-friendly councillors elected. While the county councils and mayors are mainly responsible for transport, the boroughs and districts control the planning permission process (including whether new estates are walking/cycling-friendly or car-dominated), regeneration projects and lots of other things which can really help (or hinder!) cycling infrastructure.

Fenland and West Norfolk Friends of the Earth hosted an online Q&A with candidates from different parties and an independent. You can find the audio recording on this facebook post (I'll link any other copies when we find them). Active travel includes cycling and gets a few mentions in the opening and closing statements, as well as a question about 55 minutes in.

Please let us know on social media or the comment box below what your candidates say about cycling.

Finally, please remember that we must take photo ID along to vote in person now. See How to vote : Photo ID you'll need - GOV.UK for a list of what's allowed, which doesn't make much sense to me: for example, 60+ and disabled person bus passes are accepted, but railcards and student bus passes aren't.
