Walking and cycling in Charlbury – your views sought

Walking and cycling in Charlbury – add your views to our interactive map!

The council has agreed to draw up a plan for improving walking and cycling opportunities in and around Charlbury, as a key part of our Highways and Transport Strategy. The plan will include a specific focus on the needs of people who use mobility aids of any description, as we know there are plenty of barriers to the safe and easy passage around town for these residents.

To be able to draw up this plan and to prioritise elements within it, we need to gather information about what residents like and dislike (and why), and to identify what’s missing in the local network. And to do this, we would like to your hear views.

To tell us what you like, or what you dislike and would like to change within the local network, please add your comments to our interactive map at https://communitymap.uk/project/charlbury_lcwip. On the map, you can drop a pin and use the drop-down menu to classify problem areas, describe the problem and suggest improvements. You need to register on the site the first time you make and save a comment with a single click for Google or Facebook login (or you can do it by email if you like). It says ‘Suggest walking & cycling improvements in Charlbury’ on the map but we do want to hear from residents who get about using mobility aids as well.

The results of last autumn’s traffic survey, as well as comments made to previous Town Council surveys, for example the Community Action Plan, will also be fed into our plan.

We have made arrangements to reach groups with very specific needs, including disabled residents, pre-schoolers and very elderly residents, via routes other than this post and the interactive map.

Deadline for responses: 15th May 2022. Please tell us what you think of local walking and cycling routes at https://communitymap.uk/project/charlbury_lcwip.

Thanks for your help – Charlbury Town Council’s Journey’s team
