Conclusions

There is much to be critical of in these plans for Hindhead. Advantage should be taken of the change in national thinking in the six year interval since these plans were made to throw them away and start again. The comments here should be used as a basis to re-build the community of Hindhead with the easy cycle use that should be a natural part that community. If extra funds are called for, the case should be made and incorporate the potential savings that can be made in the Department of Health budget through increased exercise and reduced risk of road accidents.
