The government is becoming increasingly supportive of cycling as a method of transport. This is because if properly planned for it is an efficient, cheap and healthy way to travel. The advent of e-Bikes is also opening up options to make cycling more attractive in hilly areas and also allows people to cycle to a more advanced age.
The department of transport in July 2020 published a very comprehensive guidance document on how cycle lanes should be laid out to make them easily usable and safe.
This document will have a impact on our major new developments e.g. Weyside as well as plans being developed for the Town Centre
Help us make Guildford better
We want our town to be vibrant, attractive and liveable. We support development that brings a sense of place and enhances the best aspects of our town. If such aims can be embraced, we believe Guildford has the chance to lead the way in enabling sensitive and sustainable development.
Pressures for development are increasing. Planning rules are being eased. The Society’s commitment to standing up for Guildford is needed more than ever.
Getting involved allows the society to continue its work. We welcome new members, from every age and background. Membership provides an opportunity for you to contribute to the continued health of the town and surrounding area, and to meet other people who care about Guildford.
