Questions to ask County Council candidates

Lancashire County Council is the highways authority for our district, and they are the ones who decide on cycle infrastructure and safety.  With the local elections on Thursday 4 May, here is a suggestion. When candidates for the County Council elections come knocking on your door to ask for your vote, ask them these questions:

  1. Will you lobby for a dedicated council officer to support cycling and walking to school for children?
  2. Will you lobby for a road safety officer with a special brief to  make main roads such as the A6 less dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists?
  3. Will you lobby for an increase to the dedicated cycling budget?
  4. Are you willing to hold council officers to account to implement these  necessary safety improvements in Lancaster district?

Dynamo has written to the Lancaster Guardian suggesting that their readers ask the same questions.
