Chesterfield Cycle Campaign promotes cycle use in Chesterfield for both leisure and utility journeys.
By campaigning for a comprehensive network, we aim to improve conditions for cyclists so that cycling becomes a safer and more attractive option than car travel for local journeys.
One of the concrete blocks on Crow Lane has been moved to allow cars through. Please take care if cycling (or walking) on Crow Lane.
The government announced the next round of funding today and Derbyshire County Council will receive £1.68M. Plans include both new and refurbished sections of cycle route between the Royal Hospital and Brookside.
Work has started in Dronfield creating the shared path alongside the B6057, another section of the north – south cycle route connecting Dronfield to the Five Pits Trail.
We know Derbyshire County Council have submitted their bid for the 2nd tranche of active travel funding which we hope may include more cycling measures in Chesterfield.
Ahead of the announcement and with the governments ‘Gear Change’ policy in mind which urges local authorities to reallocate road space for walking and cycling we have emailed the four main local political parties to ask them for their views.
Labour – acknowledgement (17th August) but no reply
Conservative – no reply
Lib Dem – see their reply here
Green – see their reply here
