Hampshire County Council and Winchester City Council are working in partnership to start work on a developing a local cycling and walking infrastructure plan (LCWIP) covering the Winchester District. You may be aware that an equivalent draft plan for Winchester City was consulted on earlier in the year, and plans have also been prepared for Eastleigh and Fareham Boroughs). The purpose of the Winchester district LCWIP is to identify a number of routes within and between the settlements in the Winchester district - in partnership with local stakeholders - that they feel need to form the focus for future investment in improving walking and cycling – such as routes from market towns and rural areas into Winchester, Eastleigh, Fareham and Waterlooville as well as the most useful walking and cycling links that connect nearby villages.

To ensure that local communities play a part in identifying and shaping these priority routes, we will be holding two ‘online’ workshops in October to which we want to invite people who have local knowledge of routes that are currently used, as well as the barriers and issues that discourage people from walking and cycling more, in order to assist us with identifying a network of which corridors should see walking and cycling investment in improvements.

 The two dates for the workshops are;

  1. Tuesday 4th October 10:00-13:30
  2. Wednesday 5th October 17:30-21:00

The two workshops will both cover the same content and geography, so there is only the need for stakeholders to attend one of them.
