PompeyBUG presents a meeting with Cllr J.Fazackarley, CTC Campaigns & Policy Director R.Geffen & special guest E.Booth
At our last meeting we looked at how the Dutch have created cycle-friendly towns and cities. Thank you to everyone who attended – we hope you enjoyed it and came away more positive about the future of cycling in Portsmouth. As a follow-up, we’ll be looking at how we can do this in the UK and in Portsmouth in particular.
Roger Geffen, the CTC’s national campaigns and policy director will also be speaking about best practice from across the land and 'Space for Cycling' a new national campaign aimed at pedalling cycling up the political agenda locally and nationally.
Crucially though, ‘Space4Cycling’ is also a major opportunity to boost involvement in local cycle campaigning and campaign groups, and indeed to help new campaign groups to form in areas of the UK where these are currently lacking.
Once again we will finish with a Q&A session with our guests plus Cllr Jason Fazackarley, the PCC cabinet member for Traffic & Transportation.
We will also be joined by Eric Booth, chair of the cycle campaign in Bristol, which became the UK’s first ‘cycling city’ in 2008. They’ve had a number of infrastructure improvements since, and now have ambitions to create their own Dutch-style cycle network of segregated lanes and tracks.
Can we do this in Portsmouth? Or is it too ambitious? As an example of ambition, Hamburg – Germany’s second largest city – is planning to ban all cars from its city centre within 20 years.
This event is open to all who are interested improving cycling in the Hampshire area.
