Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP)

Report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture

Decision:

1)             That Committee agrees the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) (Appendix 2 to this report) as a basis for the strategic planning of active travel network improvements in the city over the next ten years.

 

2)             That the Committee agrees that the cross-party Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) Member Working Group continues to operate in order to provide oversight of the delivery of the plan, with amended Terms of Reference brought to a future meeting of the Policy & Resources committee for approval.

Minutes:

86.1      The Committee considered a report of the Executive Director, Economy, Environment & Culture that presented the proposed Local Cycling, Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) that set out the strategic plans and ambitions for routes and areas in the city to be improved for active travel. The LCWIP Brighton & Hove’s LCWIP has been progressed over the last three years, involving stakeholder and public engagement.

 

86.2      Councillor Nemeth observed that the report proposed a permanent cycle route on Old Shoreham Road which was something that had previously been rejected by the committee and an issue his Group were against in principle and would therefore be voting against the report recommendations.

 

86.3      In response to a question from Councillor Wilkinson, the Principal Transport Planner confirmed that any LCWIP schemes undertaken would have a detailed design and more consultation and committee approval requested.

 

86.4      In response to a question from Councillor Platts, the Principal Transport Planner confirmed that Wilson Avenue was a high and long-term priority as not all high priority schemes were deliverable in the short-term. The timescale on any scheme could shorten should increased funding become available.

 

86.5      Resolved-

 

1)           That Committee agrees the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) (Appendix 2 to this report) as a basis for the strategic planning of active travel network improvements in the city over the next ten years.

 

2)           That the Committee agrees that the cross-party Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) Member Working Group continues to operate in order to provide oversight of the delivery of the plan, with amended Terms of Reference brought to a future meeting of the Policy & Resources committee for approval.
