Hampshire County Council (HCC) has published its draft cycling strategy and this is now open for comment from the general public. There are a number of points that equestrians should be concerned about.
Two key points are the promotion of the use of rights of way as off-road cycle paths and the support of major cycling events in Hampshire. HCC make no mention of the impact that this will have on current users or on the surfaces of rights of way.
If you are interested in submitting your views to HCC please go to the following web page for more information: http://www3.hants.gov.uk/transport-schemes-index/cycling-strategy
Comments need to be submitted to HCC by Wednesday 29 July 2015.
