Norfolk Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans

Norfolk County Council has secured a revenue grant from central government to support the development of a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for Norfolk. The LCWIP for Norfolk plays an important part in delivering the Government’s strategy for encouraging everyone to cycle and walk more, especially when making short journeys in towns and cities. Increased levels of active travel, especially for shorter journeys in towns, will help to reduce congestion, improve air quality, and benefit the environment and local economy.

The objective of the plan is to develop a countywide walking and cycling network, and identify infrastructure improvements over the short, medium and long term.

The development of the Norfolk LCWIP also supports the delivery of a low carbon, well-connected transport network in Norfolk. The plan for Norfolk is in the early stages of development and to support with the development of the plan the County Council has created an online survey to help obtain insights into current levels of cycling and walking within Norfolk and to identify places where people feel they want to be better connected on foot or cycle.

The initial Norfolk Cycling and Walking Survey is open from 5 April to 30 May.
