Cyclists urged to take part plans to shape future of St Ives
CYCLISTS in St Ives are being urged to take part in a survey to improve cycle paths in the town.
The St Ives Town Plan team is asking them to take part in an online questionnaire to discover more about cycling in the area.
Mike Croker, spokesman for the town plan, said: “St Ives already has a good cycle network in place but the St Ives Town Plan team are looking at how it can be improved.
“The survey is designed to find out how the existing cycle routes are being used, whether there are any improvements needed to these routes or the facilities provided and most importantly whether these routes are safe.”
The survey is just one of the ongoing projects that the town plan team is working on. Members are also asking young people about facilities in St Ives.

Mr Croker said: “We are seeing how aware the young people are of the facilities, to see whether they need to be more publicised or we need new facilities in the town.”
The town plan is in its second year, and identified a need for the town’s retailers to form a group, which was set up by Cloud Nine Gems owner Maria Needham, who has instigated the Tennerday promotion scheme on Saturday.

During its first year, the team identified traffic on Harrison Way was being stopped every two minutes during rush hour, which led to Cambridgehire County Council engineers to investigate the problem and, as a result, the guided busway crossing traffic light timings were changed.
The team also worked with the town’s businesses to produce a Mary Portas Town Pilot bid and last year organised Christmas shopping events with St Ives pupils singing carols.
