Consultation on draft Strategic Cycling and Walking Delivery Plan 2018-2028

Have your say on our draft Strategic Cycling and Walking Delivery Plan 2018-2028, which will replace the County Durham Cycling Strategy from November 2018.


Cycling and walking help you get in shape, stay healthy and travel cheaply. They are great ways to travel to school, work or the shops.

Getting more people to cycle and walk has benefits for everyone. By reducing car traffic, improving air quality, creating more spending power and encouraging healthier lifestyles, cycling and walking can help County Durham become healthier, happier, wealthier, more equitable and vibrant.

We want to make cycling and walking part of Durham's culture and to make them safe, affordable and enjoyable modes of transport for everyone.

What are we consulting about?

The delivery plan sets out our goals to help more people experience the benefits of cycling and walking. It will deliver local and regional plans and policies which aim to reduce the reliance on car travel and create confident cycling and walking communities.

Key areas include:

  • Durham to be widely recognised as a cycling and walking friendly County.
  • Durham has high quality cycling and walking networks that are safe, accessible, well maintained, integrated, signed, recorded and promoted.
  • More people, especially women, children and older people are cycling and walking for everyday journeys.
  • The quality of people's lives, their fitness, health and wellbeing are improved.

The delivery plan consists of the following documents:

Have your say

We have worked with a range of interested organisations to develop the draft delivery plan and capture different views, but also want your feedback.

The closing date for comments is Friday 7 September 2018.

What happens next?

We will take your views into consideration and a final version of the plan will be presented to Cabinet in November 2018.
