- How was the information gathered on the previous online map used?
We had over 7000 contributions to the online map. These contributions were analysed and the rich and detailed information provided to us assisted to prioritise actions for the draft bicycle plan. The actions are based on what the community has told us is important.

All submissions will be publically available unless the community member explicitly requests that they should not be published.
