What this consultation is about
The 4 authorities of Derby City, Derbyshire, Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire have worked together to prepare this Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for the D2N2 area, based on government guidance published in April 2017.
The LCWIP is a long-term strategic plan setting out the vision to develop comprehensive local cycling and walking networks across the D2N2 area to help encourage people to travel more actively.
It identifies the corridors where we would like to see investment in cycling and walking improvements over the next 15 years, to connect key areas and communities, deliver cross boundary routes and improved facilities for local residents and visitors to the area whether for everyday journeys or leisure.
Our work is based on previous stakeholder engagement and detailed technical analysis to help identify, evaluate and prioritise these improvements, as detailed in each authority’s delivery programmes.
The programmes of potential cycling and walking schemes include both new routes as well as improvements to existing infrastructure, so it meets current design standards. Once complete, this will create cycling and walking environments that are appealing and accessible to all, including horse riders wherever possible. The LCWIP will be used to support funding bids in order to develop and deliver the proposed schemes wherever feasible.
This is your opportunity to comment on the content of the LCWIP and let us know if you support our joint ambitions by completing the online survey which will remain open until 8 March 2023.
