More cycling can help Chelmsford to tackle challenges like air pollution, congestion and unhealthy lifestyles. Local people and businesses are invited to sign up to the Chelmsford Cycling Charter.
This isn’t just a declaration of intent; it has practical uses too. Your backing will help officers at Essex County Council to negotiate for more investment in cycling and help encourage others to try it. Similar charters have been produced for Colchester and Brentwood.
A Chelmsford Cycle Forum is also being set up with representatives from Chelmsford City Council, Essex County Council, cycling charities, public health, businesses, schools and community groups. It will meet regularly, with one of the first tasks being to promote the Charter.
