CPIR Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Walking and cycling are two of the most promising activities for addressing the current environmental challenges, promoting healthy lifestyles and ensuring a sustainable future for the generations to come. The Government’s ambition is to make walking and cycling the natural choices, not only for shorter journeys, but also for longer journeys with the combination of other modes of transportation. Furthermore, transforming local areas in ways that support active travel will reduce congestion, improve physical and mental health and support local economies, aligning with the Government’s sustainable vision.

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIP) have been developed by the Department for Transport (DfT) for local and regional authorities to take a strategic approach in improving walking and cycling infrastructure and encourage a shift away from motorised vehicles.

The three key outputs of an LCWIP are:

  • a network plan for walking and cycling, which identifies preferred routes and core zones
  • a prioritised programme of infrastructure improvements for future investment, and
  • a report which sets out the underlying analysis carried out and provides a narrative which supports the identified improvements and network.

Cornwall Council have secured state funding as part of the Local Authority Capability Fund to support the commitments made in the Government’s Cycling and Walking Plan. AECOM are supporting Cornwall Council and Cormac in developing separate LCWIPs for the following areas:

  • Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth (CPIR),
  • Falmouth & Penryn,
  • Newquay, and
  • Penzance & Newlyn.

Consultation on the proposed networks has now closed and results are being analysed.
