Residents are being encouraged to have their say on the future of Medway’s cycling and walking infrastructure.

A six-week consultation on Medway’s Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) will start on Monday, 22 January and run until Sunday, 3 March.

The aim behind our LCWIP is to create a long-term plan that looks at how best to improve the walking and cycling network across Medway, and also takes the varying accessibility needs of Medway’s residents into account.

The LCWIP will act as the framework for infrastructure improvements over the next 10 years. We want to ensure we get the valuable insight from residents to ensure improvements are delivered where they are most needed.

More sustainable and healthier ways of travel

Cllr Simon Curry, Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Climate Change and Strategic Regeneration, said: “As part of our ambitious active travel aspirations, we are committed to making it easier for people to choose more sustainable and healthier ways of travel. I would encourage all residents to take a look at these proposals and have their say on what improvements are needed to help make active travel the first choice. It is really important we have this long-term plan in place, which will also help attract more funding to deliver improvements across out network.”

Taking part in the consultation

You can take part in the consultation through our website. There will be an online survey where residents can comment on the routes relevant to them, as well as an interactive map and high-level scheme drawings, where they can suggest improvements.

We will also be holding two public events during the consultation period where residents can come along and learn more about the plans and ask any questions they may have.

These events will be held at:

  • Medway Park – Tuesday, 30 January – 3pm to 7pm
  • The Pentagon Shopping Centre – Wednesday, 31 January – 9am to 1pm
