Cllr Peter Smith, Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development at Crawley Borough Council praised the West Sussex Cycle Summit as a “tremendous event” that presented “a compelling business case for investment in cycling infrastructure”.
“I was pleased to see a good attendance of senior Councillors from WSCC as well as representatives from the LEP and local business groups.”
Cllr Smith went on to say:
“The speakers presented a compelling business case for more structural investment in walking and cycling infrastructure as it would bring real benefits in terms of growth, increases in economic activity, reductions in congestion and pollution as well as helping with parking shortages.”
“They presented a case for an ‘Imperative need to invest in Cycling infrastructure’ which was a must-do rather than a nice-to-have.”
The presentations from the Summit can now be viewed online.
