What does the Policy Forum do?

The Policy Forum reviews and develops LCC's policy positions. It meets quarterly and organises a regular seminar series (open to the public) to encourage debate on cycling policy. The seminar series launched on Monday 8th April with Andrew Gilligan, London's Cycling Commissioner, speaking.

Quarterly forum meetings are open to LCC members, who are welcome to speak (although only Forum members can vote) and to join the Policy Forum mailing list. We are working on a range of issues, recent and current projects including:

Love London Go Dutch Matrix - a matrix to assist speedy assessment of schemes against the Love London Go Dutch criteria (completed).

Inclusive Cycling - a pilot developing LCC's policy on cycling for all (in progress).

Traffic Enforcement - a policy pilot developing LCC's position in relation to the legal treatment of moving vehicle offences (in progress).

Policy on Buses and Bikes (in progress).

When do Cyclists Need Protected Space? - a policy pilot exploring the 'trigger points' at which motor vehicle speeds and volumes make protected space for cycling necessary (completed). 

Campaign themes - we have been developing (at a dedicated seminar, and in our regular meetings) priority campaign themes for LCC in 2014.
