General Data Protection Regulations: SY will set out in a future newsletter how the way we treat personal information satisfies the requirements of this forthcoming legislation.

 

MJ will send a response (1) in support of the planning application for the i9 office building at the top of Railway Drive. The proposals have good cycle provision for employees.

(The artists impression show a flat surface for Railway Dr. ie no kerbs; this is different from what we last heard when discussing the Metro proposals at the Cycle Forum. Need to check)

 

Rob Marris had drawn attention to reports (2) that the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured where the road surface is a contributory factor is steadily increasing.

Initial actions:

  • Make a more prominent link on the WOW website to pothole reporting sites.

  • Add an item to next Cycle Forum agenda (in particular how does the council use the powers it has to compel utility companies to make good defective repairs)

Need to investigate a venue for our June meeting, the Vine in Wednesfield was suggested as a possiblity.

 

Hari had emailed to say he has completed his move to Birmingham so will no longer be able to attend. He noted how he had enjoyed our company and intends to continue campaigning.

 

Other Matters discussed (but no actions noted): South Staffs Cycle Scheme, NCN 81 Albrighton – Telford, West Midlands Cycle Charter Action Plan, Pipers Row diversions (Princess St barriers), Parking in cycle lane outside Girls High School.
