Liskeard Cycling and Walking Network Seeking Views

The Looe Valley Trails project is working closely with a number of other projects looking to enhance active travel for the communities of South East Cornwall. One of those is the Liskeard Cycling and Walking Network project which is looking to deliver improvements throughout Liskeard for non-motorised users.

The Liskeard Cycling and Walking team are currently seeking your views and we would encourage you to share your thoughts with the team. This will help to shape the future of not only this scheme, but the Looe Valley Trails project as well where the routes are in and around Liskeard.

Sustrans has been commissioned by Liskeard Town Council to provide a comprehensive Local Walking and Cycling Infrastructure Plan for the town. This will include detailing potential walking and cycling routes and network options to encourage the community and visitors to move more sustainably around the town and its surroundings. The exercise will include analysis of the current situation, consultation with stakeholders and detailed recommendations and plans which can be used as the basis of funding bids.

To be able to engage more fully and inclusively we have developed a digital Community Mapping Tool for the public and stakeholders. Participants are then able to comment on the local area, identifying barriers to walking and cycling. The GDPR-compliant mapping software allows users to leave as many comments as they like, whilst identifying unique participants and other demographic data, for the purposes of evidencing engagement.

We want to ask you to identify on the map:

  • Main physical barriers to walking, cycling and wheeling in the area e.g. major roads and junctions, railways, etc.
  • Potential cycle routes to connect the key origins and destinations within the area
  • Potential walking zones where there is a high pedestrian activity e.g. high streets, schools, busy pedestrian crossings, etc.
