Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP)
The Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIP) are designed to create cycling and walking networks and is a crucial step for Sunderland in achieving our vision of a city that thrives.
The Government encourages local authorities to develop LCWIPs based on a methodology set out by the Department for Transport.
LCWIPs ensure that a long-term approach is taken to develop local cycling and walking networks, ideally over the next 10-year period and form a vital part of the Government's strategy to increase the number of trips made on foot or by cycle.
LCWIPs are intended to:
- Plan for cycling and walking using evidence and data on existing and future potential demand
- Target investment where it can have the greatest impact
- Identify cycling and walking infrastructure improvements in readiness for funding bids
- Plan cycling and walking network that meet core design outcomes, meeting the needs of users
