Days left to have your say on new walking and cycling network in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 22nd Nov, 2023   0

RESIDENTS have until the end of Friday, November 24 to share their thoughts about an ambitious proposed network of walking and cycling routes across Redditch.

The outcomes will inform the development of Redditch’s first Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP).

A LCWIP sets out a long-term plan for delivering new or improved infrastructure for walking and cycling.

In line with national guidance, it focuses on areas where there is a larger density of population and therefore the greatest propensity to increase levels of cycling and walking.

Coun Mike Rouse, Worcestershire County Council’s cabinet member for highways and transport said: “We’re working on a new cycle network plan for Redditch, and we’d really like to hear what people think about it.

“This new plan, called an LCWIP, is important because it helps us secure funding from the Department for Transport. This funding isn’t just for cycling, but also for road repairs.




“We want everyone in Redditch to tell us what they think about our new routes. We know Redditch already has some good cycle paths, but we aim to make them even better.

“We want to emphasise that this is just a draft. Nothing’s final yet. Your feedback truly matters to us and will shape the final plan.


“This is your opportunity to have a say and help us make the best decisions for Redditch. We’re listening, and we want to work together to get this right.”

The outcomes of the engagement will inform the LCWIP document which is due to be drafted and submitted for further engagement during 2024.
