Find out more about the Warwickshire Walking and Cycling Infrastructure Plan – Warwickshire County Council

Warwickshire County Council will soon be encouraging residents to complete a consultation survey to find out what people think of plans to improve walking and cycling infrastructure.

The proposed improvement plans cover walking and cycling for both transport and recreation. Residents will also have the opportunity to provide feedback on the draft Warwickshire Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP).

The LCWIP project was developed following the public engagement in 2021, which asked people to identify the types of walking and cycling improvements they would like to see in their area.

This important consultation is an opportunity for people who live, work, study and travel in Warwickshire to comment on various aspects of the draft plan and help refine and prioritize general proposals for future walking and cycling schemes. of Warwickshire.

Cllr Wallace Redford, Warwickshire County Council portfolio holder for transport and planning, said: “Active travel and encouraging our residents to ditch their cars for shorter journeys is a key priority for this council. The benefits of this shift in travel are enormous for both individual health outcomes and the wider environment.

“We recognize that it is not enough to ask residents to make this big design shift without providing the necessary pedestrian and cycling infrastructure that makes it both possible and desirable, which is why this consultation is so important. I hope as many of our residents as possible will take up the many opportunities – both online and in person – to engage in this process as we work together for a Warwickshire that is sustainable now and for future generations. .

When it is live, residents can take the survey by visiting: https://ask.warwickshire.gov.uk/

This consultation will take place from Friday June 17 to Friday August 12, 2022.
