Cycling Action Plan


The Scottish Government has issued a consultation document on its Cycling Action Plan. This was discussed at the City Development Committee on Monday 28th September. A number of councillors made their views known about this consultation. My view is that this response to the Scottish Government consultation is to be welcomed. Cycling is important and we should all be working harder to ensure that cycling is promoted. The Cycling Action Plan does this and I am very happy to see that the Council's response to question 10 is clear. We saw in the Evening Telegraph last week that the people of Dundee did not support proposals to have a road tax for cyclists. I am pleased that the Convener has seen that this Scottish Government proposal was wrong. Anyway as one of the ladies asked by the Evening Telegraph last week about this said, 'Where would you put the tax disk?'
