We are on Zoom, kept to under the 40 min limit.

Prioritise asks.

  • We started looking over the our Streets for distancing map and it was felt that we have already done a lot of work here which has yet to be acknowledged.
  • We have yet to hear back from Councillor Manuel Abellan
  • It was agreed that we would like to see proposals for the Sutton to St Helier Cycleway brought forward for trialling as this would help with a priority route for key workers to St Helier Hospital. Also, for the council to consider the potential for bringing forward any Liveable Neighbourhoods proposals in trial form as appropriate.
  • TFL would be looking at ther location at Tudor Ave / Palmer Ave where Young women loses her life whilst cycling in North Cheam


  • Audience. Who have we\have we not contacted yet?
  • It was quickly agreed that we need to put pressure on the council, and that pressure needed to be made on councillors immediately.

Next Steps

Chas shared what he’d been sending today


Date of the next meeting

  • It was agreed that meeting on Zoom was very accessible and we’d acheived a lot in a short time.
  • We wanted to keep up momentum so it made sense to meet next Tuesday
  • Tuesday 12th May, 7.30pm.
