The following template should help to outline to your employer why they should support this scheme.

Subject:  Safe cycling to work in Chiswick and Hammersmith

Dear [Sir / Madam],

Transport for London is keen to deliver a protected cycle track in West London that would make getting to work much easier and safer for many employees.

If built, these will dramatically improve travelling in West London and would be a huge leap forward for the safety of all our staff who commute by bike, including me.

Unfortunately, there is a real danger that these plans will not happen now that Hammersmith and Fulham Council are arguing that the route should run along the A4 rather than along King Street. That’s why I’m canvassing public support from local organisations, starting with us.

I would very much like to have you send a letter of support for this major new scheme on behalf or our organisation.  I would deeply appreciate us supporting this as soon as possible, potentially even in the coming week.

If you are OK to lend our support, we just need to send an email to Hammersmith and Fulham Council. It needs to specifically say “For Consideration” and mention the Cycle Superhighway 9 consultation. In it we can explain how the plans will help our organisation and its employees. If you need some inspiration, there are some template letters here:

I would be happy to write a first draft of the statement and send it to you.

Thank you for your time,
[Your Name]
