The Epping Forest and Commons Committee has approved a decision to allow cycling throughout Wanstead Park.

It follows a consultation earlier this year in which over two thirds of respondents (675 responses) were in favour of allowing cycling across the whole park. Previously, a 1930s byelaw restricted cycling to one path. “We ask cyclists to observe the cycling code of conduct, stick to the paths and note any areas that remain restricted, such as historic or ecologically sensitive areas,” said a spokesperson.
