Cycling and walking improvement plan consultation extended by a further two weeks
Three Rivers residents are urged to have their say on the cycling and walking improvement plan as the council extends the public consultation deadline.
The district council is currently consulting on the draft Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP), which is a strategic plan with the aim to encourage cycling and walking by improving safety and providing better travel connections.
The draft LCWIP is a joint project between Three Rivers District Council and Hertfordshire County Council and forms part of the government’s strategy to increase the number of trips made by foot or by cycle.
The consultation was only to last for six weeks, and any feedback and comments received during that period would be considered and could influence final decisions prior to the adoption of the master plan.
However, council officers have listened to requests made and have agreed to extend the consultation period by a further two weeks. Residents, businesses, and stakeholders now have until Monday, 17 July, to have their say on the draft LCWIP.
Cllr Paul Rainbow, Three Rivers District Council’s Lead Member for Transport, said: “The comments we have received so far from the LCWIP consultation have been invaluable and I thank those who have had their say.
“We have extended the consultation by a further two weeks, giving people, stakeholders, and local businesses more time to have their say on this vital document that will help the district make that critical transition from private vehicles to walking and cycling for short journeys.
“If you have not done so, please complete the consultation to help us improve cycling and walking in our beautiful district.”
