Corby Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Closed 13 Nov 2022

Opened 22 Sep 2022

Overview

Residents are being encouraged to give their ideas on how routes for walking, wheeling and cycling in Corby can be made more attractive as part of the town’s new Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP). 

The ten-year walking and cycling plan will outline proposals for a network of safe walking and cycling routes across the area including dedicated cycle infrastructure, new footways, safer crossings, traffic calming and locations for cycle parking. The plan will cover Corby and surrounding villages and the council is working with WSP and local social enterprise Brightwayz.

Developing the plan forms part of the Council’s ambition to promote active travel to help reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality and allow people to travel more sustainably for the shorter, everyday journeys to school, the shops or leisure. This is the first stage of the plan and the information gathered will be used alongside other technical data to help draw up the routes to be audited on site and the draft proposals. 

Once the routes have been audited and draft proposals for improvements developed, the public and other stakeholders will have a further opportunity to have their say before the plan is finalised. 

Once the plan is in place, the Council will be in a stronger position to apply for funding from Active Travel England to build the routes to create a joined-up and safe network.

Local residents, organisations and businesses are invited to give their views via the Commonplace platform online or please contact us via the email address or phone number below for a paper copy.
