Monaghan Council Invites Comment on their draft County Walking & Cycling Strategy

 

Monaghan County Council’s Transportation & Community Strategic Policy Committee is inviting the public to review the Council’s proposed County Walking & Cycling Strategy. 

 

The document will influence how the Council supports the development of walking and cycling over the next five years. This will include infrastructure provision for both active travel (commuting) and recreation, and activities to promote the growth of walking and cycling in the county.

 

Launching the consultation, Cllr Raymond Aughey, who is Chair of the SPC, said, “This document is very important, as it will form the basis for the Council’s activity in the arena of walking and cycling. As we have seen as recently as last week, there is a lot of funding for walking and cycling at the moment, and it is therefore very important that we get this document right, and that best use of this opportunity is made, for the people of Co. Monaghan.”

 

Also speaking at the launch, Patricia Monaghan, Director of Services for Transportation and Community Development, urged the public to get involved and to have their say.  “This is not a document that is going to sit on the shelf unused for the next five years,” she said.  “There is funding available for commuting infrastructure in towns and villages,  for making school environs safe so children can walk and cycle to school,  and for recreational projects of significant scale, including looped walks and greenways. 

 

There are real opportunities here to enhance the county’s infrastructure,  and to support people to walk and cycle more.  Due to Covid, we weren’t able to get out and talk to as many people as we would have liked as we prepared the document,  so it’s really important that we get as much input as we can now.”
