Getting around

Do we want better pedestrian crossings? Are we happy with our cycling routes? does the one-way system work? What do you think the neighbourhood plan should say about getting around?  This is what you said:

1. Car sharing club – local one?

2. More cycle paths

3. Worry about roads, cycling on road is scary, especially with children

4.Fine adults for cycling on footpath (unless accompanied by a child – maybe)

5. Boris bikes for Clapton +2
