01/02/2023 - We’d like to know what you think about cycling and walking in Luton
Following feedback from the council’s cycling and walking public survey last year the council is now seeking views on a new plan for Luton.
It is important that the town has the support of residents, businesses and visitors, so the council can be sure it’s focusing its attention to improve the infrastructure in the correct places. The information collected will be used to finalise the plan and act as the basis of future active travel investment in Luton.
Cllr Rob Roche portfolio holder for Inclusive Economy at Luton Council said, “Our aim is for Luton to be a healthy, fair and sustainable town which is carbon-neutral by 2040. To get to this point, we want to ensure cycling and walking is the first choice for people when they are making local journeys.
“We had such a high response rate to our survey earlier this year so we know this is important to people and we really encourage them to give feedback on our proposals. We are happy to hear any new ideas they have too - we want to get this right. It will help us in our aim to have half of all journeys in our town cycled or walked by 2033”.
Responses to the survey will be reviewed and the findings used to finalise the LCWIP and the proposals. Following this, the council will look to adopt the plan as policy.
The short questionnaire will be open from 1 February to 1 April and you can complete it online by visiting www.luton.gov.uk/letstalk Paper copies are available on request. There are also a number of engagement events where people can talk to the project team.
