We have received the email below from Richard Wadey. Whilst it is not the most important piece of cycling infrastructure Newham needs, it is good for us to be consulted on things like this. If you have any ideas, please contact Richard on the email address in his note:
Dear Newham Cyclists,
I hope you are all well.
I am in touch as Cllr Corbett has agreed for an art-led public space project to proceed that seeks to install bespoke designed cycle racks at locations across the borough.
The project is being led on by OpenSpace a not-for-profit arts development organisation, please see the brief attached.
I have had a meeting with OpenSpace with suggestions of the types of locations that could do with new or enhanced cycle parking provision that could contribute to brightening up the public realm in a fun way (library’s/community facilities/parks/stations/town centres etc) but as early as possible I would like to seek suggestions from Newham Cyclists.
Any suggestions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Related to this, our new additional cycling officer should be starting in September and we will be conducting a cycle parking audit/needs assessment (in addition to a cycling facilities/signage audit) asap. I plan on attending your next meeting (1st of September, Coffee7?) as I have some positive news/updates regarding Stratford Gyratory/QEOP/Royal Docks/Quietways.
Thank you for your help,
