We would like to hear your views

Since the COVID 19 Pandemic and the Stay at Home instruction from the government, car use has dropped, air quality has improved and walking and cycling has increased. Reading Borough Council is proposing to make a number of changes to roads that will impact you and how you use them to get to work or shop in Reading.

As we come out of Lockdown, the Conservative group on Reading Borough Council would like to hear your views as residents on what changes you would like to enable more walking and safer cycling in the borough to maintain the positive outcomes whilst minimising impacts on other means of travel.
Thank you Cllr Jane Stanford-Beale, Reading East Conservatives, 40 Caversham Road, Reading RG1 7EB
