Rights of Way Improvement Plans (England & Wales)
CTC View (formal statement of CTC's policy):
- There is currently a considerable, suppressed demand for traffic-free off-road cycling routes, especially close to where people live. Provision for family cycling is particularly poor. RoWIPs offer opportunities to improve off-road cycling provision. To maximise the benefits of cycling, the delivery of RoWIPs should:
- Be informed by a survey of the off-road cycling network to identify gaps and implement improvements
- Promote, sign and maintain routes for cyclists
- As resources are likely to be limited, RoWIPs benefit from the input of volunteers working through the Local Access Forum (LAF) and in conjunction with local authority staff.
