Nickey Line north-south extension; A4147 cycleway; A414 cyleway Hemel - Park Street; A1081 cycle corridor Luton - St Albans; A405 cycleway; Grand Union Canal; A411 corridor; A414 J8 cycle bridge; Hemel Magic-Roundabout cycle bridge

Your help with campaigning work needed! The campaign field we would most like to develop is commenting at an early stage on planning applications, with regards to provision of cycle routes and storage for cycles on the premises. We need members to help with this!

HCC Local Transport Plan, LTP4 includes just about everything we as a cycle campaign would like to see happen - reduced car dependency, more active travel, more public transport. A key feature is the need for County and District / Borough Councils to work together to co-ordinate interacting strategies. We are working with other cycling groups in the county on this and other issues, under the CycleHerts banner.
