OUR MEMBERS

We are a group of like-minded members, some of whom represent advocacy or campaigning organisations linked to walking, cycling, health and the environment.

The core vision of Regent’s Park Cyclists is to support Regent’s Park as a premier open space for responsible cyclists, consistent with the best practice of other major urban parks

This group was founded after London’s biggest ever bike die-in, outside TfL surface transport HQ Nov 2013. It advocates radical, non-violent direct-action campaigns for safer cycling infrastructure.

The London Cycling Campaign (LCC) is an independent membership charity lobbying for better conditions for cycling in London. Its vision is to make London “a world-class cycling city”. It is one of the largest urban cycling organisations in the world, with over 11,000 members.

LIVING STREETS, THE UK CHARITY FOR EVERYDAY WALKING. We want a nation where walking is the natural choice for everyday local journeys. Our mission is to achieve a better walking environment and inspire people to walk more.

Progress starts here: one street, one school, one step at a time.

OUR

OBJECTIVES

Some motor traffic journeys to and from parks are necessary – for deliveries, for those with disabilities, and for other reasons. However, parks should not be used as a replacement for main roads – they shouldn’t be through routes that drivers take just to cut a few minutes off their commute. For this reason, this group at the outset is calling for all through motor traffic to be eliminated from London’s parks, and for now, specifically The Regent’s Park.

  • Remove all through motor traffic from all parks.
  • An initial focus on London’s urban parks.
  • Given existing, advanced proposals for Cycle Superhighway 11, we will initially focus on The Regent’s Park. We want the Crown Estates Paving Commission (CEPC) to adopt in full those elements of CS11 that directly relate to the Park or provide alternative methods to remove all through, motor traffic from The Regent’s Park.
  • Parks for People will exist as a campaign organisation in its own right, but supported by and working in conjunction with member and supportive organisations that share similar aims to remove through motor traffic from London’s parks.
  •  Parks for People will use a variety of campaigning tactics, but will focus initially on establishing constructive dialogue with those who control access to The Regent’s Park for motor traffic – including The Royal Parks, Crown Estates Paving Commission, Transport for London, City Hall, Camden Council and Westminster Council.
