Report by Infrastructure Strategy & Policy Manager (CA9).


The Oxford Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) is a detailed 10-year plan which sets out how to improve cycling and walking in Oxford. The plan includes a target to increase cycling in Oxford by 50% by 2031 and the evidence of how this is to be achieved. There are 28 supplementary plans with walking and cycling schemes provisionally costed at £300 million. The LCWIP fits in with and directly supports the Connecting Oxford proposals. The LCWIP will be a subsidiary document of the new Local Transport and Connectivity Plan, currently being developed. The document was submitted to the DfT in December and we now have DfT feedback comments. As well as cycling and walking schemes, the LCWIP includes policies which will impact on Council transport policy and procedures and future scheme design and prioritisation.


The Cabinet is RECOMMENDED to approve the Oxford Local Cycling & Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP), including the Oxford cycle network plan.
