We're developing a Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for the city in order to plan strategically for the walking and cycling network.

The development of an LCWIP for the city is following the technical guidance issued by the Government, and will enable the council to review and prioritise the infrastructure that is needed to plan and improve the city’s walking and cycling network. It will also ensure that the city is well placed to bid for future funding opportunities relating to walking and cycling, and that cycling and walking are fully included and incorporated into new developments.

The LCWIP will aim to improve the walking and cycling network, promote active travel and enhance links between Brighton & Hove and neighbouring areas, including the South Downs National Park. Wider benefits of the plan include greater connectivity, equality of opportunity, and improved public health and overall quality of life for residents. It will also help meet the challenge of becoming a carbon neutral city by 2030.

The plan will lead to a 10-year prioritised programme of walking and cycling improvements focused on principal cycling and walking routes, and within ‘walking zones’ centred on town and local centres with the highest levels of footfall.

Work on the LCWIP is underway and there will be opportunities for stakeholder and public engagement in the plan as it develops. Further updates will be posted to this page.
