Professional Support

Cycling England has appointed an expert team to work with professionals in local authorities and other organisations.

The Local Authority Professional Support Team has a brief to work with local authorities and other organisations to provide technical support and advice on engineering, planning, encouraging cycling and health, to enable local authorities to achieve maximum return from their investment in cycling. This is primarily through dissemination of existing and emerging good practice.

The team responds to specific requests and is able to provide a limited amount of free technical support. Priority is given to opportunities where the assistance of the team might make most difference, and which contribute to Cycling England’s guiding principles of leverage, impact and focus.

For more information see Local Authority Professional Support Team (pdf).

A selection of the advice provided through this service is available in the Encouraging Cycling and the Engineering and Planning pages of this site.

LTP Review Service
