Update on responses from councillors – Chris Coates

Last week we sent off letters to the local councillors whose wards include the A6 from Lancaster centre to Galgate. These are Cllr Susie Charles, Cllr Chris Coates, and Cllr Joan Jackson.

We closed our letter with to each councillor with three questions: 1 – whether they support Dynamo in its campaign for a better provision for cyclists along the A6 south, 2 –  to confirm that when the Jacobs consultancy report is finally published they will scrutinise it for its significance for cyclists along the route, and 3 – to ensure that the document is not accepted if it fails in considering all road users of the A6, not just motorised vehicles. We also offered the opportunity to meet up to discuss these issues further.

In the previous post we gave the response from Susie Charles. We are now waiting for her to respond with clarification of her position towards supporting cycling within her constituency and the wider County.

Chris Coates has already stated his support for the Dynamo campaign, and has now offered to come to the next Dynamo committee meeting in order to work with us towards achieving our goals. We look forward to working with Chris in the future.
