Below, We have reported this widely in other posts, how it was drawn up and our involvement in it from BHAT, you may know this already. Here is the basis for the next 3 years, (2 months into planning) and how the Cycling Officers Local Cycling Walking Infrastructure Plan backs the TCF work. The way that these plans will succeed is to begin multiple levels of local resident engagement, including your contributions. Please start adding to the Widen My Path today, in the Forum aim is to contribute in discussion with engineers and designers, and bring schemes in advance to Public knowledge. Evidence from all over the U.K shows that Councils avoiding this advance engagement suffer badly, and schemes become watered down from great intentions.
