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.
Three web pages published by Destination Chesterfield promoting cycling today. One a general info page with links to various organisations, one listing local rides and a link to our map and finally the first of a regular ‘blog’ by Paul Chapman (S40 Local magazine).
Emergency Active Travel Fund, it is now confirmed that Derbyshire County Council received 100% of the first tranche allocated to them.
The percentage allocated was dependant on what action they took when the fund was announced which had to include closing roads and providing more pedestrian space.
Having been allocated £450,000 they can now apply for up to £1.7M in the second tranche and ministers have asked councils to be ‘even more ambitious’!
If you support the continued closure of Crow Lane to through traffic creating a walking and cycling route to the Royal Hospital and beyond please sign our petition here to show our local authorities that there is support for active travel.
Staff from the Royal Hospital, campaigners and others met Toby Perkins MP to highlight the closure of Crow Lane to through traffic creating a key worker safe route from the town centre to the hospital.
Through the Emergency Active Travel Fund Derbyshire County Council have closed Crow Lane to through traffic creating a safer route to cycle to the Royal Hospital. This was one of the suggestions we made in response to the Covid crisis.
The hospital will be introducing an electric bike purchase scheme for staff shortly too.
