Increasing the number of cycle routes in Pocklington was one of the main requests at a meeting held to consider the draft Pocklington Transport Strategy.

The meeting, held at Pocklington Town Council’s offices on George Street on Wednesday 16 October, was attended by a mixture of town councillors, members of Pocklington and Wolds Gateway Partnership and local residents.

Developed by East Riding Council, the draft Transport Strategy includes a number of small scale local transport improvement schemes for the area, which would be implemented between 2015 and 2019. The aim of the meeting was to decide on any other potential schemes that stakeholders would like to be added to the strategy.

Those who attended last week’s meeting were in agreement that more cycle routes were needed in Pocklington and integrated cycle routes are essential to the town.
