In order to support the Government’s ambition to make walking and cycling the natural choices for shorter journeys or as part of a longer journey, Portsmouth City Council have developed the Portsmouth LCWIP, setting out a long-term approach for developing cycling and walking networks in the city.
Developed in conjunction with consultants, the Portsmouth LCWIP has been produced using the Department for Transport technical guidance for Local Authorities (LA’s). This sets out how, by taking a strategic approach to improving conditions for cycling and walking, LCWIPs will assist LA’s to:
- identify cycling and walking infrastructure improvements for future investment in the short, medium and long term
- ensure that consideration is given to cycling and walking within both local planning and transport policies and strategies
- make the case for future funding for walking and cycling infrastructure
