Walking and cycling

The Government has invited local transport authorities to publish Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs) to help deliver their Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) and Staffordshire County Council has risen to the challenge to help Government achieve its ambition to deliver:

  • Better Safety - A safe and reliable way to travel for short journeys
  • Better Mobility - More people cycling and walking – easy, normal and enjoyable
  • Better Streets - Places that have cycling and walking at their heart

Staffordshire County Council’s LCWIP has been approved by the County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport and will be pivotal in helping the County Council to continue to make the case future walking and cycling funding.

Around £31m of investment is required up to 2030/31 on the priority cycle networks and core walking zones in Burton upon Trent, Cannock, Lichfield, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Stafford and Tamworth.  The 200 potential schemes identified in the LCWIP have been allocated for short, medium or long-term delivery during this period. 

Staffordshire County Council is seeking views on this version of the LCWIP

Consultation on the document took place between 9 June – 7 July 2020 and a revised version of the LCWIP is expected to be published January 2021.
