How Worcester's civil enforcement officers are getting on their bikes

Worcester Editorial 18th Mar, 2022   0

WORCESTER’s civil enforcement officers have saddled up to swiftly resolve issues at traffic and parking hotspots.

Officers have been equipped with e-bikes and have received advanced safety training from Bikeability Worcestershire.

The move has been introduced as part of the City Council’s environmental sustainability strategy to make Worcester carbon neutral by 2030.

As well as targeting parking hotspots the team will regularly make visits to schools, with a greater presence at the start and end of the school day.




“More staff using e-bikes not only helps the City Council to reduce its carbon footprint, but it also gives us greater agility,” said Coun Andy Stafford, chair of the council’s Environment Committee.

“Our civil enforcement team can now quickly cycle to areas where problems have been reported and resolve them on the spot.”


Worcester City Council teamed up with the University of Worcester to offer a free e-bike trial scheme to businesses thanks to a £18,000 Local Government Association grant.
