Cycling around the city reminds us that GoBike supported the proposed ban on pavement parking in Scotland and we supported the Deposit Return Scheme to, hopefully, get some of the glass off our streets.

Do read on.Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 65, 21 July 2020: What’s happened to Pavement Parking? Proposals approved but not enacted! Plus a request to contribute to the Streets for All Glasgow Commonplace Map, and more.”
From the feature photo with this Digest you will see that it is getting easier to cycle to Paradise! It is also now easier to cycle around George Square with private motor traffic banned from 7am to 7pm and perhaps next year it will be easier, and more interesting, to cycle along the canal at Stockingfield when the new overbridge has been constructed. News on these 3 items is in Section 3.
This Digest continues to promote the Commonplace maps, plus we have an interesting consultation on the Kingston Bridge and a copy of the GoBike submission for Pollok Park, where private cars are back parking irresponsibly.Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 64, 07 July 2020: Lockdown eases and we see some positive changes!”

We must ALL contribute to these maps; we ALL know where changes, big or small, will make cycling better for us all.Continue reading “Consultation Digest Issue 63, 23 June 2020: Have you put your comments on Commonplace yet?”
