Community groups and residents are being encouraged to take part in a consultation for St Albans' Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan.

St Albans City and District Council has said it is important that as many people as possible take part in the survey – partly because a high level of engagement will help with efforts to raise funds to implement the proposals.

The Government recently invited bids to a £200 million Active Travel Fund, requiring applicants to show their schemes are strongly supported by the local community.

Council leader Chris White said: “Residents can help shape our final plans by providing us with valuable feedback.

“We want to hear from as many people as possible, not only so we can consider their views, but also because this will help us with future fundraising efforts.

“If we can demonstrate extremely high levels of demand for improvements to routes, then it will boost our chances of securing funding. So, I would urge everyone to spend a few minutes answering the survey.”

As part of the plans, enhancements would include new or improved crossings, footway improvements, junction upgrades and traffic calming measures.
