A vital part of any council is the ability for residents with specific issues to know there is a councillor to go to who “owns” that issue. The conservative led council has decided to abolish ALL champions. This really does not bode well for cycling and walking in BaNES.
A “call to action” is where we ask people to contact their councillor and/or MP on a specific cycling related matter. It is vitally important that they hear from regular people and not just ‘those Cycle Bath people’. It changes their stance on how important cycle provision is, the way the council allocates cycle infrastructure budgets, and ultimately the way the council officers (planning) see the need for good cycling provision.
