Hughenden Valley Cycleway

NWC LCWIP Supplimentary Doc – DRAFT Nov 22 (2)

Some of you may recall that at several HVRA Committee meetings we have spoken about a proposed cycle route that runs through the King George V playing field, through NT land, Hughenden Park and onwards to the town and beyond.

With this in mind, please see the attached document regarding the development of Buckinghamshire Council’s Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) which is a draft document that has been produced over the last 18 months by the Community Board’s Transport and Road Issues Action Group. Jill Armshaw, one of our Hughenden Valley Parish Councillors, has passed this on to the HVRA because, as a keen walker and cyclist, she wishes to raise awareness locally about this matter and hopes that you may be able to assist by sharing this information with residents.

Although this is an “aspirational” plan at the present time, support is vital for this initiative to progress into reality. It’s about the future for residents who live in this locality and beyond, i.e. to reduce their carbon footprint and cycle and walk in safety away from speeding traffic. The draft Plan is extensive with schemes covering a wide area. However, on page 7, you will find Map 4 that illustrates the plan for Hughenden Valley.

As comments and feedback have to be submitted to the Community Board by 31st March, could you please pass them on to

as soon as you can because Cllr Armshaw believes it is important that the Parish Council supports this aspiration to improve provision for cycling and walking locally.
