What are your views about the provision for cyclists and walkers in Alnwick?

Northumberland County Council have just launched their Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans Consultation which seeks views on the their plans to enhance the walking and cycling infrastructure in the county and the proposed walking and cycling networks in 12 Northumberland towns (Alnwick, Amble, Ashington, Bedlington, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Blyth, Cramlington, Haltwhistle, Hexham, Morpeth, Ponteland, Prudhoe).

The County Council say: “These plans represent the long-term blueprint of the proposed walking and cycling network for each town, which we’ll use to target our investment to support a fundamental behaviour change to how we travel.”

“This consultation is the start of our conversation, we are seeking views on the principles we are following when designing these walking and cycling networks and the walking and cycling corridors that have been identified in the main towns.”

The views collected through the consultation will help shape active travel in Northumberland over the next 10 years.

This consultation will run from 7th March 2022 to 15th April 2022.
