PEOPLE in Hillingdon are invited to have their say on council plans to develop cycling in the borough and encourage more residents to saddle up.

The council has published its draft Cycling Strategy, a 10-year vision outlining its ambitions to enable more people to make trips in the borough safely.

Residents, businesses and visitors are being asked to comment ahead of a final version being launched this summer.

Among the proposals is the creation of eight new dedicated cycle routes.

A key element of the consultation will be looking to understand which of those routes residents favour most.

Cllr Jonathan Bianco, Cabinet Member for Property, Highways and Transport, said: “More safe, car-free travel options for residents will remove non-essential and polluting journeys from borough roads, while helping residents to lead active, healthy lifestyles.”

Have your say on the draft strategy before the deadline on Tuesday, June 4.
