Local authority performance rating on cycling 2003 and 2004

Bell scoring criteria

Local highway authorities performances on cycling were marked against ten key criteria as listed in the tables.  Information was collected so as to assess each authority's performance in terms of their policy towards cycling, implementation of schemes and initiatives, strategies and published data and indicators.  Over 100 separate indicators that arose from the detailed assessment process were used in combination to produce each authority's Bell Score - a mark out of 5 against each of the ten key criteria (a Bell Score of 5 being the highest and best mark, with 0 being the lowest and poorest score). The overall Bell Score is the sum total of all ten criteria added together.
