Your views on our Walking, Wheeling and Cycling Strategy for Norfolk 2023-2036

Closed 24 Nov 2023

Opened 16 Oct 2023


Norfolk County Council is updating its Walking and Cycling Strategy. The last version was published in 2017 and since then, we have seen a step change in national and local policy which has placed walking, wheeling and cycling at the heart of decision making. Our proposed new strategy brings together our local transport, environmental and public health ambitions and aims to make walking, wheeling or cycling for both travel and leisure the natural choice. 

Why your views matter

Our draft strategy supports the Government’s ambition for cycling and walking to be the natural first choice for many journeys, with half of all journeys in towns and cities being cycled or walked by 2030. 

We want to support the growing Norfolk population to choose sustainable transport to get to where they need to be and for leisure.  This will help us be more efficient in our use of transport space, create and support healthy communities, enable our transport network to run effectively and emit fewer harmful emissions, and help connect people to and protect our environment as much as we can. 

The strategy sits beneath Norfolk’s Local Transport Plan (LTP4) and sets the context for our County-wide Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) and will enable a joined-up approach to our investment in walking, wheeling and cycling into the future. Wheeling refers to travelling using wheeled mobility aids such as wheelchairs, mobility scooters and rollators.  

This consultation is the chance for you to find out more about our draft walking, wheeling and cycling strategy and give us your views. The full document can be viewed below and our survey questions will guide you through our vision and aims.

How we are consulting

We have engaged with external partners through workshops to develop our updated draft strategy.   

We really want to hear from residents and organisations to get their thoughts on the proposed strategy, this includes people who are new to or returning to walking, wheeling and cycling.

We are consulting through: 

  • This online consultation, which is also available as a paper copy    

  • Writing to external partners and organisations with a specific interest in walking, wheeling, cycling, and sustainable travel  

We are consulting from 16 October to 24 November.  

  • Please note that if we receive any consultation responses after 24 November, we cannot guarantee we will be able to take them into account.   

Information from this survey will be considered alongside other relevant data, including responses to the Countywide Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan engagement to ensure our strategy is meeting the needs of people in Norfolk.  

The findings of our consultation will feed into a final draft of the strategy and they will be fed back to our county councillors ahead of a decision to adopt the strategy. 

If you need a copy of this consultation document in a different format please email, call 0344 800 8020 or Text Relay on 18001 0344 800 8020 (textphone) and we will do our best to help.  

The consultation should take between 10-15 minutes to complete. 


What happens next

We’re asking for your feedback on the draft walking, wheeling and cycling strategy. The responses will be analysed and considered in the development of a final draft walking, wheeling and cycling strategy. A consultation report will be developed showing the results of the consultation and any amendments that have been made to the strategy as a result. A final draft, which takes into account the responses to this consultation, will be considered at a meeting of Norfolk County Council’s cabinet before a final decision is made on whether to take the strategy forward.
