Date of External Board/Outside Body Meeting Attended




Purpose of the External Board/Outside Body:

To co-ordinate and represent the views of the cycling community and to improve the provision of cycling facilities in Maidstone.





Since the last report the Forum has held the third Cycle-fest in Jubilee Square to promote knowledge of and participation in cycling, and has continued to comment on relevant Transport and Planning Policies. In particular it responded to the joint KCC/MBC proposals regarding the Mote Avenue Cycleway and supported the revised proposal agreed by the Joint Transportation Board.

It is currently working on a number of proposed promotional activities to involve schools and businesses in travelling to and from their premises by cycle.
