Have your say on new Walking and Cycling Strategy
Help prioritise investment in walking and cycling
We want to hear your views on our new Walking and Cycling Strategy, which will help us to prioritise how, when and where we invest in measures to support walking and cycling in the Borough.
The document outlines the Council’s strategy to 2030 - focusing on making our streets feel safer, quieter and more enjoyable for cycling and walking. The promotion of active travel is an important part of the Council’s ambitions to reduce polluting emissions and improve health and wellbeing, as well as boosting connectivity between communities. The Council also wants to address barriers to cycling to ensure it is available to everyone.
Much of this will involve working closely with Hampshire Country Council, who are the Highways authority within the Borough, and other partners. For instance, on the proposed Eastleigh Mobility Hub, which will include services such as public cycle hire.
The consultation is open now and closes on 7 October. You can take part online or you can pop into Eastleigh House to read the document and provide written feedback.
