      Dear All

      This is just a reminder of the next meeting and an update from the
      AGM (copied below). Sorry you haven't heard from me in a while but
      amongst other things LCC has moved offices and we still don't have
      full internet access yet. (How did we cope before e-mail and the
      www?)

      Anyway, the next meeting is Tuesday 6th December, same place as
      before:

      Conflict & Change
      2a Streatfield Avenue (near Town Hall, off Barking Road)
      East Ham
      London E6 2LA

      I believe the plan was to have a briefish meeting then indulge in
      some seasonal festivity afterwards to celebrate. If it wasn't, let's
      do it anyway!

      Those of you at the meeting will know that Bernard McDonnell offered
      to coordinate the Newham group but he's not in this e-group as yet.
      He'll be drafting an agenda, and either he or I will post it here
      for Tuesday.

      The elected Newham committee was as follows:

      Coordinator: Bernard McDonnell
      Treasurer: Anna Bagi
      Rides coordinator: Ian Calloway
      Planning (including Olympics issues): Duncan Price
      Planning (deputy): Rob Owens
      Website: Anil Marcelline (confirmed after meeting)

      It was agreed that Newham would collaborate with the Hubbub
      newsletter for the time being (run jointly by Redbridge, Barking &
      Dagenham, and Havering LCC groups) to advertise any rides, etc. Anil
      Marcelline kindly offered to be Newham's web editor, but more will
      be done on that once LCC's internet is back to normal.

      Oh, and these are a couple of planned rides but Bernard should be
      able to confirm on Tuesday:

      = Sunday 11 December 2005 =

      A 10 mile off-road ride to Waltham Abbey along the canal towpath of
      the River Lee Navigation. Return by same route or take train from
      Waltham Cross to Stratford via Liverpool Street.

      * Meet at the Olympic Countdown Clock, Stratford Station 10.30am

      = Sunday 18 December 2005 =

      Xmas Shopping trip to Camden Market. A 10 mile, mainly, off-road
      ride along the Regents Canal towpath. Return by same route or take
      train from Camden Road to Stratford.

      * Meet at the Olympic Countdown Clock, Stratford Station 10.30am

      For further information on the above events telephone: Bernard
      McDonnell 07947 236965 adavil@...


      Hope to see you on Tuesday!

      Newham Cycling Campaign

      Annual General Meeting
      7th November 2005

      2a Streatfield Avenue
      East Ham
      London E6 2LA

      Attendance: (see separate list)

      Notes of meeting.

      1. Colin Roberts, Cycling Officer, LB Newham

      1.1. It was very important for the newly formed Newham group to
      present the positive side to cycling to councillors and officers of
      Newham Council. Up until now much of the feedback they got had
      mostly been negative.

      1.2. Cycling levels were relatively high in central London but low
      in outer London. Typically, cycling was 2 per cent of traffic in
      Newham, compared with 10 to 15 per cent in central London.

      1.3. Colin was keen for people to feed back on the good and bad
      aspects of cycling in Newham, e.g. parking, general facilities, etc.

      1.4. The Newham Cycling Action Plan had been drafted and was
      available for comment. Its objectives included achieving an increase
      in cycling levels in the borough by improving the quality of the
      cycling environment and to extend the programme of cycle training.
      Infrastructure constituted a significant proportion of funds and was
      focussed mostly on the London Cycle Network (LCN+), the London-wide
      network of strategic cycle routes. This also included the A13, which
      Transport for London (TfL) lease to a private contractor. The
      Greenway was now part of the Olympic bid and thus not part of LCN+
      funding.

      1.5. The process by which the LCN+ was outlined. This was called a
      Cycle Route Implementation Stakeholder Plan (CRISP) and the current
      schemes were outlined. These were essentially feasibility or scoping
      studies which also enabled input from stakeholder groups such as LCC
      Borough Groups. More details available on TfL's website:
      http://www.tfl.gov.uk/cycles/projects/lcn.shtml

      1.6. It was stressed that features such as general traffic calming,
      20 mph zones, home zones, etc. were also beneficial for cyclists as
      they produced a safer road environment. Other issues mentioned
      included the Thames Gateway Bridge, motorcycle barriers, cycle
      parking at stations.

      1.7. Each London Borough also has to produce a Local Implementation
      Plan (LIP), which outlines the general transport strategy for the
      borough and has to be submitted to and approved by TfL. This is a
      legislative requirement of the London Mayor and encompasses all
      aspects of transport. More information at:
      http://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/about/lip/faqs.shtml

      1.8. Colin suggested setting up a cycle forum for periodic meetings
      between the Newham LCC Group and the cycling officer which were to
      be separate from the monthly meetings of the Newham group. This was
      to discuss schemes and general cycling issues.

      Colin's e-mail is: colin.roberts@...


      2. Lucy Davis, Community Cycling Officer, London Cycling Campaign

      2.1. Lucy gave an outline of her role at LCC and the type of
      projects she had been involved in. More information was on the LCC
      website: http://www.lcc.org.uk/index.asp?PageID=112
      Lucy also briefly discussed the demographics typically found in a
      borough like Newham which meant there were currently low levels of
      cycling. Lucy worked across all communities and networked with other
      community groups that need general resources to start cycling
      projects.

      2.2. There were some funds available for community projects but
      this was also dependent on project funding from TfL. More
      information could be obtained from Lucy at: lucy@...


      3. Election of Post Holders

      Coordinator: Bernard McDonnell
      Treasurer: Anna Bagi
      Rides coordinator: Ian Calloway
      Planning (including Olympics issues): Duncan Price
      Planning (deputy): Rob Owens
      Newsletter: tbc – joint publication with Hubbub for the present
      Website: Anil Marcelline (confirmed after meeting)

      Borough Group constitution agreed in principle; comments to be fed
      back to Philip or raised at next meeting.

      AOB: Name of group was agreed as "Newham Cyclists".

      Next meeting: Tuesday 6th December
