Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP)


Name: Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Our draft survey was open from 29 September until Monday 16 November. 

View the final Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan which was adopted in February 2022

The Portsmouth LCWIP highlights our priorities to improve walking and cycling infrastructure, emphasising the need to create an active travel network that encourages city-wide use. The LCWIP supports the emerging Local Transport Plan 4, the government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS) and our draft vision to create an inclusive, active and sustainable travel network for a safer, healthier and thriving city by 2036.

Through this draft plan we aim to ensure that new infrastructure for walking and cycling will be accessible to everyone, including residents, people who work in the city, visitors and businesses. Your views on our outline proposals will help to shape our plans.

What is consulted on and why?

The Portsmouth LCWIP provides a planned approach to improving conditions for cycling and walking in the city over the next ten years.

The proposals highlight a range of short, medium and longer-term infrastructure improvements for walking and cycling.

The plan summarises three key outputs, which collectively form the LCWIP:

  • Cycling and walking network plans which identify preferred routes and core zones for further development
  • A prioritised schedule of infrastructure improvements for future investment
  • Background report which sets out the underlying analysis on the narrative which supports the rationale for the identified network and prioritised improvements

Next steps

The Portsmouth LCWIP consultation took place between September and November 2020. The results of the survey are being analysed and the LCWIP will be further developed based on the feedback received.

This will then be discussed in detail by Cabinet, and if approved, adoption is scheduled for summer 2021.
