Cycling Scotland's State of the Art approach

The Cycling Action Plan for Scotland (CAPS) will be developed over the coming year, with the goal of getting more people to cycle more often. The Plan will seek to draw together the efforts of all agencies delivering cycling in Scotland, to form a more effective and unified force for change. The Cycling Action Plan for Scotland (CAPS) promises to be one of the most exciting developments in cycling in Scotland in decades, as it seeks to draw together all organisations with a stake in cycling to deliver real and lasting change based on the needs of the public. Stakeholders will get their chance to develop CAPS further when the views of the public will be considered at a Stakeholder Engagement Conference on Tuesday 7th October at Perth Concert Hall. Click here for more information and to register. The extensive quantitative and qualitative research, online survey and Public Roadshow feedback will be taken direct to stakeholders to decide on the future of cycling in Scotland. The conference will focus on giving stakeholders the chance to shape the action plan in key areas identified by the public and will be free to attend. Following the consultation events, it is anticipated that the information and input will be shaped into a Consultative Draft Action Plan to be published in early December 2008. This will give everyone a second opportunity to provide feedback. The Final Cycling Action Plan for Scotland will be published in may 2009.
