Warwickshire’s Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP)

Have your say on the Draft Warwickshire Walking and Cycling Infrastructure Plan

Warwickshire County Council would like to find out what people think about plans for improving infrastructure for walking and cycling.

The draft version of the Warwickshire Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) has been developed by the county council and sets out our plans for the future. It builds on previous work and has taken account of suggestions made by people on the types of walking and cycling improvements they would like to see in their local area using an online survey and interactive map

The draft LCWIP is available to view and download below.

Producing an LCWIP will enable the County Council and partners to:

  • Demonstrate a clear commitment to walking and cycling by identifying and prioritising infrastructure improvements.
  • Build on previous improvements to walking and cycling infrastructure.
  • Respond to demand by local communities for better facilities.
  • Provide high quality infrastructure to meet the demands of a growing population.
  • Ensure that consideration is given to cycling and walking within both local planning and transport policies and strategies.
  • Make the case for future funding for walking and cycling infrastructure, including Active Travel funding from the Department for Transport and developer contributions.

Draft Warwickshire Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

To help you navigate the document, it has been split into three sections:

Part 1 – Introduction. The introduction sets out the background, methodology and extent of Warwickshire’s LCWIP.

Part 2 – Network plans. This section sets out our proposed network plans for walking and cycling in Warwickshire and provides the evidence and information we have used to develop these. We have produced a Part 2 document for each of the five districts and boroughs in Warwickshire.

Part 3 – Implementation. The implementation section provides a prioritised list of cycling schemes, along with an explanation of the methodology we have used to prepare these.
