Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development programme update

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) development programme update

Following the adoption of the Cycling and Walking Strategy (CaWS) by the Cabinet in July 2021, officers are progressing with a programme to develop Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIP's) as set out in the CaWS Action Plan. Having these plans in place will enable funding to be sought for key cycling and walking projects, including via Government bidding opportunities and from land developers.

Development of LCWIPs for the Loughborough area and south of Leicester area are well underway and we will provide updates on these in due course.

Development of the next two LCWIPs is now beginning which will be for the Melton Mowbray Area and north of Leicester area. During May and June, early engagement activities are being undertaken to inform their development.

This early engagement will be about seeking input on key local cycling and walking priorities, to consider alongside the data, that will benefit the most people. This will help shape the key priority cycling and walking networks for these defined LCWIP areas from an early stage.

The first of these engagement activities will be with relevant local County Council members, ward/district councillors and parish councils as well as with district authorities.

Further wider public engagement activities during the development of the LCWIP's will follow in due course.
