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 led on this project and following several rounds of discussion and editing, you can now view the document here. A related motion was passed at the 2013 AGM supporting the policy.

Buses and Bikes - our attempt to outline how the 'protected space' policy applies to buses, and what we think about sharing with buses and potential conflicts with them. This policy was discussed at March and June 2014 meetings, and by email between January and June 2014. A final version is now available here and a related motion will be put forward to the 2014 AGM.

Campaign themes - the Forum held a dedicated seminar on priority themes for LCC's space4cycling campaigning in the 2014 elections and worked up the six campaign asks. These were as follows, with links leading to the drafts that the Forum 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 and Kevin are leading on this project which has also fed into the LCDS. A workshop took place in February 2014 on this theme.

Other projects we have started include work on transport modelling, with our January 2014 seminar on cycling and transport modelling, and the enforcement of motor vehicle offences, with an upcoming seminar planned for Autumn 2014.
