We have already had some great suggestions for improvements to the footpath, cycle-path and bridleway network around Long Leys, for the 2021-2040 Long Leys Neighbourhood Plan. If you haven’t already sent us your suggestions then, to ensure we capture all the ideas from the Long Leys Community, please do spare a moment if you can. Simply take a look at the map below. Then imagine where a new route could be created, that could make life easier and safer for you as a pedestrian, cyclist or horse rider (where appropriate!) as you try to get to the seven example destinations marked on the map.
The goal in the 2021-2040 Neighbourhood Plan is to help improve health and reduce pollution, by developing safe, traffic free access to areas of Long Leys and the surrounding area. We’re not expecting everyone to make suggestions for all these destinations – just the ones that are important to you from your home. You may want to tell us why you currently chose one route or avoid using another.
The example destinations (from your home) are:
- Whitton Park
- Lincoln City Centre
- Pyewipe Inn (and beyond via the National Cycle Network)
- Bishops Bridge (the footpath / bridleway either side)
- Burton Village
You can share your views by emailing Jon Davies, who is leading work on this focus area of the Neighbourhood Plan. Email: email@example.com.
Background to 2021-2040 Neighbourhood Plan
This activity is part of the Neighbourhood Planning project for Long Leys and supports the following focus area:
- Footpaths and cycle-ways: Improving safe and easy access into neighbouring areas and the city centre.
The Long Leys Neighbourhood Plan is being developed by LLRA and community volunteers, along with specialist support from a grant funded planning consultant and other specialist consultants. The overall project is being managed, on behalf of LLRA, by the Neighbourhood Planning Action Group (NPAG). If you would like to volunteer to help with any of the Neighbourhood Plan activity, which is 100% community led and controlled, then email us at NPAG@long-leys.org. Volunteers willingly give up their time to benefit the whole Long Leys community. See long-leys.org/neighbourhood-plan/ for more details on the project.
