UNITARY AUTHORITY STAFF TOLD TO GET ON THEIR BIKES

Council workers in North Wales could feel the power of pedals if the new unitary authorities adopt a scheme to promote the use of bicycles instead of cars on civic duties.

The Western Mail (p8) reports that Gwynedd CC has proposed the introduction of staff mileage allowances for bicycle users and the provision of a cycle 'pool' for officers who do not want to use their own bikes for council business.

Several councils in England who already operate schemes to encourage the use of bicycles are mentioned in the story. Cambridgeshire CC and Southampton City Council offer mileage allowances to staff.

Lincolnshire and Oxfordshire CC, Gloucester City Council and Strathclyde RC also run schemes.

Caernarfonshire and Merionethshire shadow UAs meet later today to consider the Gwynedd CC proposals, reports the paper.
