Shropshire Local Cycling & Walking Infrastructure Plan

October 27, 2021

City Science are pleased to announce our successful appointment by Shropshire Council to deliver their county-wide Local Cycling and waking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP).

The LCWIP will cover walking and cycling infrastructure development within the towns of Shrewsbury, Bridgenorth, Ludlow, Market Drayton, Oswestry and Whitchurch as well as settlements within a cyclable distance to each. The plan will help to develop Shropshire’s sustainable transport plans for an accessible, well-connected county that enables the community to travel actively and safely, including improving connectivity to public transport hubs, hospitals and major town centers.

As mentioned in the Shropshire Star, Councillor Ian Nellins, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for climate change, natural assets and the green economy said: “An LCWIP for Shropshire will form part of the overall driving mission of the council to combat climate change and deliver a safer, more economical and cleaner local environment.

It will do this through helping us to identify and deliver a fully functioning active travel network, that encourages walking and cycling over private vehicle travel for local journeys. We are looking forward to working with the community in a collaborative and positive way to support the delivery of more sustainable places in both urban and rural settings.”

The Shropshire LCWIP follows City Science’s previous successful and well-received work in Yeovil, Taunton and Truro - as well as our ongoing work in Milton Keynes and North-East Lincolnshire.
