Dear Councillor Jones,
Elfrida Rathbone Camden is a leading charity based in Kentish Town. We provide a family support service and an education project for young people with learning disabilities and autism. We have been based in London for over 30 years.
Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our 25 employees cycle to work. An even larger proportion of our team would cycle to the office if they felt comfortable and safe on the roads.
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. The excellent provision for cycling in the Tavistock/Torrington Place trial matters a lot to all of us who use it. It enables us to get around easily – and most importantly safely. It is definitely one of the attractions of the neighbourhood to us.
The excellent provision for cycling in the Tavistock/Torrington Place trial scheme will help us attract and retain the employees our business 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.
