Consultation planned for updated cycle lane proposals for Beeston

Nottinghamshire County Council has negotiated an extension of time  on proposed work in Beeston with the Department for Transport as part of its Active Travel Fund.

At Transport and Environment Committee on 9 February it will be recommended that the proposals for the Dovecote Lane cycle route will be consulted upon to further consider concerns from the local community.

The Active Travel Fund (ATF) has been created by the Department for Transport (DfT) to fund active travel schemes that help deliver government’s plans to boost greener, active transport and to make walking and cycling safer during the pandemic.

Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Chairman of the Transport and Environment committee said: “The DfT have agreed to extend their timeline for the Active Travel Fund which the Dovecote cycle lane proposal would be funded from.

“We spoke to them after a number of concerns were raised to us from the local community and these need to be considered very carefully.

“An update will be going to the next Transport and Environment committee on 9 February, and we will consult on this later this month.  The feedback will be reviewed early Spring.

“I would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to get in touch so we can work together to reach the best solution.”
