The plans for each area include details of proposals for enhancements to existing walking and cycling routes, including cycle parking, well-lit pedestrian crossings and the creation of new, safer routes.
HCC is keen to hear from as many residents as possible about walking and cycling (especially any problems or issues which you would like the planners to take into account). There is a short online survey and an interactive map which provides room for comments on specific areas, routes and crossings.
RCY residents might like to take a close look at the proposals for Secondary Route 268, which is currently proposed to run along Weevil Lane (with some proposed narrowing to reduce traffic speed - see p71 of the proposal), rather than through Royal Clarence Yard, which might make more sense as this is a largely pedestrianised area and could benefit the waterfront businesses. There is no mention of RCY in the proposal, the Waterfront Trail/Millennium Promenade, and no mention of the inadequate provision of visitor cycle parking at RCY.
If you have time, please also comment on the details of some of the other proposed routes. The more people who comment, the more likely it is that your voices will be heard and feed through to local development policies to make a better walking and cycling environment for everyone.
Deadline for comments is 31st October 2021.
