Cyclists could be officially allowed to use their local parks in Brent as the council seeks to revoke a byelaw that currently prevents them from doing so.
Brent Council has launched a public consultation into the 1977 measure, which prohibits cycling in 57 parks and open spaces in the borough.
It hopes revoking the byelaw would promote sustainable transport and encourage healthier living.
Cllr Krupa Sheth, responsible for the environment at Brent Council, said: “We are working hard to make Brent a borough that is accessible for all and look to encourage more environmentally-friendly modes of transport such as cycling, and that means making it easier and safer for cyclists to get around in the borough.
“We’re keen to get people’s views on this bye-law, which if revoked, would bring Brent in line with neighbouring boroughs who allow cycling in parks, with all parks assessed and any necessary safety measures put in place.”
These measures include the introduction of a 5mph speed limit, and signs to identify areas where cycling will still be prohibited, such as on narrow paths, entrances, and in playgrounds or outdoor gyms.
The consultation runs until 31 July.
