Coalville, Cropston Drive and Abbotts Oak Drive Proposed Walking and Cycling Improvement Scheme.


The Cabinet considered a report of the Director of Environment and Transport seeking approval for the implementation of the Coalville, Cropston Drive and Abbotts Oak Drive proposed walking and cycling improvement scheme.  A copy of the report marked ‘13’ is filed with these minutes.


Mr. Osborne CC noted that there had been only two objections to the scheme which had otherwise attracted wide support. It was part of a larger project to enable development and address traffic issues in the area.


Mr. White CC said that the scheme would encourage healthier lifestyles as well as improving access. He was disappointed that having referred the matter to the Cabinet the local member had not attended, or even submitted a statement to explain why he would not support the proposals.




That the Coalville, Cropston Drive and Abbotts Oak Drive, walking and cycling scheme as set out in Part B of the report and the associated appendices be approved for implementation.




The scheme forms part of the wider walking and cycling network being delivered in Coalville, and is a named scheme in the Local Transport Plan 3 (LTP3) Implementation Plan 2014-2017.
