22 Space for Cycling Councillors elected

Sun, 7 May, 2017

Oxfordshire’s election results are now in.  Of the 63 elected Councillors, 22 have supported Space for Cycling.

That more than doubles the 10 Councillors who had declared their support in the previous Council.

Here is the list of Oxfordshire County Councillors supporting Space for Cycling May 2017.  

  • 15 registered on Cycling UK’s Vote Bike website to Plan, Invest and Build Space for Cycling.  
  • 6 registered for the previous Space for Cycling campaign, to “support space for cycling, and seek the funding needed to make it happen”
  • 1 wrote us a very clear email expressing her support for cycling and our campaign.

The Oxfordshire Cycling Network looks forward to working with the next Council to improve facilities for cycling and hence the number and frequency of people cycling.  We aim to work with the Council to develop a shared vision for Strategic Cycle Network, based on our proposals, to understand the potential costs and benefits, and to use the plan to help gain the investment and support needed to build a county-wide all ages, all abilities network, piece-by-piece.
