Cycling and walking path development

We have plans to develop safe and direct routes to encourage more people to walk and cycle.

We want to get more people cycling and walking in our area, so it's is the natural choice for everyday short journeys. 

Cycling and walking is good for our health and wellbeing, the environment and the local economy.

We have established a cycling and walking programme to identify, develop and secure funding to deliver infrastructure improvements.

We're developing Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans. They identify and prioritise improvements to the cycling and walking network between 2022 and 2037.

There are plans for Barrow, Kendal, and Penrith.
