National lockdown: Stay at home

Active travel fund public consultation

Our active travel fund public consultation is now open. 

We’re consulting on proposals to improve footways and cycle routes in parts of Cannock, Stafford, Burton upon Trent and Newcastle-under-Lyme.

We’d like to hear what local people, organisations / businesses and their employees think, so please share ideas or local knowledge, including things you like about the proposed schemes and any concerns that you may have.

In order to help you understand our proposals we have created a map of each scheme location, including descriptions of the proposed improvements, an accompanying short information video for you to watch about each scheme and an artists impression of what a stepped cycle path (812 KB) could look like. You can view these by clicking on the area buttons below. 

Once you’ve viewed the map and video for the scheme that you are interested commenting on, you can complete our short questionnaire

Cannock Stafford Burton upon Trent Newcastle under Lyme

Local authorities were invited by central Government to bid for additional money to invest in improving the environment for both walking and cycling.  Successful bids needed to include schemes that meaningfully reallocate road space to cyclists and pedestrians.

Local knowledge was used to identify the most promising locations for new cycleways that could be delivered swiftly and would meet government guidelines. Locations prioritised in the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan were also considered, where data indicates there is likely to be the highest levels of cycling.
