It’s very good news that the planning application for a cycle route along the Avon Valley through Crews Hole at the ‘Conham Gap’ has now been approved. We were strongly supportive of the proposal as it received a rare ‘five green’ score against our five criteria.

It’s been two years since the last proposal was rejected following angry, misinformed and disappointingly managed meetings where BCyC members felt intimidated for advocating that walking and cycling should be enabled on this important link. 

This now leaves the small problem of funding the works. We hope it will form part of the programme for the Cycle City Ambition Fund 2 funding
