Survey launched to help inform our Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

[UPDATE 13/09/2022: due to the period of national mourning, we have extended the deadline for the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan survey from the original deadline of 15 September to midnight on Thursday, 22 September 2022]

A survey to help inform the development of the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for the Isles of Scilly has been launched today (Thursday, 1 September 2022).

Residents and visitors to the islands are invited to respond to the survey, which aims to identify patterns in travel behaviours and collate views on a variety of different ideas for supporting more walking and cycling on Scilly. You have until midnight on Thursday, 22 September 2022 to respond to the survey at the link in the box below. At the end of the survey, as a thank you for participating, there is also an option to enter into a prize draw for the chance of winning a £100 high street voucher.


The LCWIP will be delivered by the Council with support from the Department for Transport. LCWIPs, as set out in the Government’s Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy, are a new, strategic approach to identifying cycling and walking improvements required at the local level. They enable a long-term approach to developing local cycling and walking networks and form a vital part of the Government’s strategy to increase the number of trips made on foot or by cycle.

The survey has been developed by Sustrans, a charity which aims to make it easier for people to walk and cycle and follows the sessions run on the islands in June and July which gathered ideas from the community on how to improve cycling and walking infrastructure on the islands.  

Please take some time to complete the survey and help us understand how best to get more people walking and cycling on Scilly.
