Dear Councillor Jones
I’m contacting you on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Library & Information Professionals, based in Ridgmount Street, Bloomsbury.
Like many organisations in London we are committed to encouraging active travel amongst our staff, including cycling. A growing number of our employees cycle to work and we know from staff surveys that a larger proportion would cycle if they felt safer on the roads and there was better cycle infrastructure.
We value their safety and we want to promote active lifestyles for all our employees. We support their freedom to choose how they get to work. We also note strong evidence that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels.
The excellent provision for cycling in the Tavistock/Torrington Place trial scheme will help us attract and retain the employees our organisation needs to continue to thrive. They will also make London a more attractive city in which to build and run our business.
The scheme is, on balance, excellent for our business and for London. Please ensure that it is retained.
