Following the first general article about the Participatory Budget scheme (click here if you missed it), this is the detailed description of the ADAPT bid,
AudlemOnline has decided to use the snappier title of "You Decide" for this event rather than "Participatory Budget" which doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.
ADAPT is keen to support the other Audlem bids from ADCA and APHAx/Gym, and is encouraging voters to support these bids as well as the ADAPT Cycle Map project.
The vital thing is to come along to the Nantwich Public Hall before 10am on 21 January, listen to the presentations, and vote.
ADAPT's funding bid being presented on the January 21st 'You Decide' process at Nantwich Public Hall is to produce and publish a cycle map for the Audlem area based on safe an enjoyable cycle routes away from our busy main roads. ADAPT's promotion of the fantastic network of lanes and other routes around Audlem will be aimed at unlocking the many health benefits of cycling for people throughout South Cheshire aged from 5 to 80+. The project should also be of benefit to the local economy as cyclists from elsewhere in the area are attracted to the Audlem area.
If successful, the money (we are bidding for £3185) will be used for professional cartography services, graphic design and printing delivered by service providers all based less than 10 miles from Audlem. The map will be delivered both as a paper leaflet and in electronic form. ADAPT members will prepare the content for the project on a voluntary basis without any use of the scheme funding.
ADAPT estimates that over 400 people are likely to enjoy the health benefits which fall into the categories of:
ADAPT's Transport Group have piloted many of the routes both themselves and in publicised rides and have proven that the routes work and can form the basis for a new initiative for our area. The map is needed to act as a focal point for its promotion, and nothing like this currently exists.
