What is a Greenway?

Greenways are traffic free routes for people, plants, and animals. The paths link places that people live and work, and can join together wildlife habitats.

Did you know that Norfolk already has a Greenway – Marriott’s Way!

Marriott’s Way runs for 26 miles from the centre of Norwich to Aylsham, connecting the communities of Costessey, Lenwade, and Reepham on the way. The route is extremely well used, welcoming over 500,000 walkers, cyclists and horse riders a year. Its users include heritage and ecological groups, and Marriott’s Way even hosts a yearly marathon and 10k run.

What is the Norfolk Greenways project?

We want to develop a Greenway network across Norfolk linking in to existing cycling and walking routes. To start with we are looking at re-using the disused railways tracks running from:

• Aylsham to Stalham

• King’s Lynn to Fakenham

• King’s Lynn to Hunstanton

Why We Are Consulting

This is just the beginning…

At this early stage we’re looking to hear from landowners, local residents, and other key stakeholders such as community groups, charities, and local councils to find the best way of realising a shared vision.

As well as this online feedback form, we are holding nine public exhibitions to share our initial designs and along the length of eachof the three routes where you can find out more and have the chance to speak to the project team face-to-face.

We will use the public feedback to produce a report outlining what will happen next.
