EFTAG have had several important meetings so far in 2020.
- George and Jack presented our cycle route proposals to Loughton Town Council and received a warm reception. They fielded questions from the councillors and explained the broad benefits that high quality cycle routes could bring for our community, including better walking conditions and accessibility.
- Jack and Chris met two transport officials from the County Council in Chelmsford: Kris Radley (Essex Cycling Strategy Leader) and Julian Sanchez (Commissioning Delivery Manager). This meeting gave EFTAG a clearer idea of the pathway to effecting change and the avenues for lobbying which will yield the best results.
- Simon Munk from the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) came to our January committee meeting. He has been a tremendously successful campaigner for better and safer facilities for cycling, first in Waltham Forest, and now with the LCC. He very much liked our proposed routes and general direction of travel, and advised us to focus, with our limited resources, more strategically on what precise steps we need to take to achieve our aims.
