Sign for a Mini-Holland scheme in Barnet

Are you keen to make Barnet’s streets more attractive for walking and to introduce measures to make our roads safer for people who want to cycle? If so, please check out the petition on Barnet’s website which is asking the Council to review its Transport Strategy, with the defined aim of encouraging more walking and cycling through the establishment of a Mini-Holland in the Borough. 

It only takes a couple of minutes to sign this petition: click here.

Mini-Holland schemes encourage more people to cycle, and cycle more often, with features that make cycling feel safer and more convenient. They also aim to improve streets and public spaces for everyone.
