Green Party campaign leads to new cycle parking at Art Gallery and Museum

A long campaign by Green Party campaigner Hannah Cooper has resulted in much-needed cycle parking being installed at the Art Gallery and Museum on The Tything.

Hannah started a petition in June 2019 asking for cycle parking to be provided. But despite the petition being signed by over 400 people, it was rejected by the former County Council Cabinet Member for Highways. Now, at last, cycle parking has been installed.

Hannah said, “I’m delighted that the cycle parking has been installed. This will be a huge help to museum-goers during the cost of living crisis. Families have told me that they have not come to the gallery as there was nowhere to lock a bike - so the cycle parking could actually provide a boost to the local economy and increase visitor numbers.’
