I’ve signed a commitment to support Cycling UK’s campaign for investment in active travel, and specifically:

1 The investment needed in active travel to achieve the 2025 target to double levels of cycling, making active travel a priority in all transport and neighbourhood decision-making.

2 The development and delivery of an active travel network of safe, accessible and direct routes including cycling infrastructure networks designed to national standards in every town and city, and rural routes to link these.

This is particularly relevant to our area – as the current Conservative administration at DCC is refusing to back rural routes like the Stop Line Way between Colyford and Axminster, and this must be one of our big asks of a new administration.
