To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans in delivering their goals.
The Department is currently piloting a programme of support to assist 46 local authorities with the development of Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs). These plans are still under development. LCWIPs help local authorities think strategically about their cycling and walking networks and prioritise a pipeline of projects for future investment.
