As part of the drive to promote active travel, reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality, Waverley Borough Council is providing bike shelters in its car parks across the borough.
This is just part of a whole variety of initiatives in line with ‘Your Waverley’s Climate Emergency Strategy. A strategy spearheaded by portfolio Holder Steve Williams – the man recently described on some very Anti-Social Media as being in a “Fantasy World!” Despite town planning experts advising councils across the country to do the same.
The council has been working with Parish and Town councils as well as representatives from Godalming, Farnham, Waverley Cycle Forums and Haslemere Vision in a bid to provide new bike shelters in council-owned car parks across the borough.
The bike shelter project will take place in two phases with the first bike shelter hardstanding being installed in Village Way, Cranleigh on Tuesday 3 May with the bike shelter being installed in June.
It will replace the bring bank which has been removed now that the council’s new, free Textile and Small Electrical service has been launched to Waverley residents. Further details on the collection service, which collects residents’ unwanted items, can be found on the Textile and Small Electrical web page.
There will be a small number of car park spaces unavailable for the week whilst work is carried out.
