There’s no cost to register your support for GMCC, and more supporters means Councils and others are more likely to act on our representations.
The campaign’s aims are:
• To increase cycle use in Greater Manchester for all types of trips including, commuting, local and leisure.
• To ensure that cycling is promoted within local authority strategies, schemes and programmes, as a cheap, healthy, sustainable transport choice that is available to all.
The campaign’s objectives are:
1 - To develop and ensure the maintenance of a safe, convenient, efficient and accessible cycle network utilising on and off road facilities that will help to encourage greater and more widespread cycle use.
2 - To reduce the actual and perceived dangers faced by people who cycle or would like to cycle.
3 - To ensure that cycling is promoted as a transport mode that can have a positive effect on a shift away from private motoring, particularly for short trips.
4 - To ensure transport and planning policies and developments enhance cycling facilities while addressing potential conflicts between different transport modes.
