Lancashire County Council wants to join up the gaps in our existing network of footpaths and cycle routes and provide safer, direct and more convenient routes. They are inviting everyone to take part in a survey that will help shape future plans for cycling and walking in Lancashire.
Working in partnership with Blackpool Council, they are developing Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans, providing long term solutions for our future cycling and walking networks throughout Lancashire.
A plan will be produced for each of the following seven geographical areas of the county; Central Lancashire, Ribble Valley, Hyndburn and Rossendale, Burnley and Pendle, West Lancashire, Fylde Coast and Lancaster. The Fylde coast plan will include Blackpool alongside Fylde and Wyre.
To help the council, they are asking for feedback from across the county on current cycling and walking provision in their area. They want to know what the gaps are in the network and what facilities would enable people to walk and cycle more.
Additional design and feasibility work will be needed to take any of the proposed schemes forward.
