Whitecliff and Baiter Park

Thank you for all your comments; this consultation is now closed. 

We are exploring options for a scheme to create a safer environment for travelling on foot or by bicycle within Whitecliff and Baiter Park.

What we are proposing

The plan is to widen the existing waterside path with two north/south links connecting to Whitecliff Road. This new widened path will be protected to create both a dedicated cycle way and footpath.

Why this is important

Prioritising walking and cycling helps us to contribute towards tackling the climate emergency and enables people to make journeys to work, school, and for leisure, by bicycle or on foot instead of using cars as contained in the Local Transport Plan. The route has also been identified as a priority within our emerging Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan.

How this is funded

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the government has awarded us 'Active Travel Funding' to introduce changes to help increase the number of journeys completed by walking and cycling. This is so that everyone can enjoy the benefits to health, air quality and reduction in congestion.
