About the Policy Forum's projects

We have a number of different projects at various stages. We'll be putting up information about these from time to time, including how to contribute to projects. If you have an interest or expertise in a particular topic, do contact us - we welcome input.

Love London Go Dutch Matrix - a matrix to assist speedy assessment of schemes against the Love London Go Dutch principles. The matrix was approved at March's policy forum meeting and is now available for activists to feedback and use. It has also fed into the new London Cycling Design Standards. Find out more here.

When do cyclists need protected space - outlining the 'trigger points' at which motor vehicle speeds and volumes make protected space for cycling necessary. Rachel is leading on this project and following several rounds of discussion and editing, you can now view the document here.

Campaign themes - the Forum held a dedicated seminar on priority themes for LCC's campaigning in the 2014 elections, which will be closely linked to space4cycling, and has worked up a series of campaign asks. These are as follows, with links leading to the drafts that the Forum has produced for discussion in workshops at October's LCC AGM -

  1. Safe Routes to Schools
  2. Quiet Zones
  3. Dedicated Space on Main Roads
  4. Greenways
  5. 20mph speed limits
  6. Liveable high streets

Inclusive Cycling - developing LCC's policy on all ability cycling. Brenda is leading on this project which has also fed into the LCDS. A workshop will take place in February 2014 on this theme.

Traffic Enforcement - a policy pilot developing LCC's position in relation to the legal treatment of moving vehicle offences. Anthony is leading on this project and is at the evidence gathering stage.

Other projects we have started include work on transport modelling (Rachel, with Philip and George) and peak car and traffic evaporation (Philip leading). We will be holding our January seminar on cycling and transport modelling.
