Assisting the development of new Healthy Streets and Active Travel groups in several county towns
We want to help develop initiatives in the other major towns in Oxfordshire and are proposing to stimulate activity by holding public meetings either (a) where a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) has been produced (Didcot, Bicester, as well as Oxford) or (b) where a need has been identified.
For instance in Abingdon, monitoring local pollution levels is already underway, together with a survey to establish whether residents want to close Northcourt Road to through traffic. Abingdon will be the initial focus, in conjunction with Abingdon Carbon Cutters. Other likely county towns have already been identified by OCN and OLS, as there is an active group or keen individuals, that would appreciate some extra support, to establish a new community group. The development of new groups will make it easier to press the County Council to take more action, for instance with the Local Transport and Connectivity Plan 5 (LTCP5).
