LBHF have been conducting an Active Travel audit within the borough, and have developed a map on google maps to visualise this.

They are asking for enthusiastic residents to contribute further to this, adding our knowledge, data and ideas to the map.

You can view and contribute to the map via the link below. You will need to sign into your Google account to contribute.

With the map you can choose various ‘layers’ to find what you’re looking for, such as:


  • Cycle Racks,
  • Cycle markings on the road,
  • Existing Cycle Hangars,
  • Cycle Hangar requests,
  • e-bike / e-scooter parking,
  • etc.
