A whole range of proposals forming a new Bee Network active travel route between Romiley and Stockport are included in a consultation that ends in just a few days, potentially benefitting a big area of south east Greater Manchester around the River Goyt.
A series of lanes on the rural fringes of Stockport have recently (and very quietly) received new “Quiet Lane” signage, but is a sign enough to make a quiet lane?
Community group Buxton Town Team have drafted the first sustainable travel plan for the High Peak spa town, including proposed actions on accessibility and movement through the town by walking, cycling, cars and goods vehicles.
Stockport Council have just opened a new Bee Network walking and cycling consultation, for a route from Edgeley, bridging the mainline railway junction and the A6, into the town centre and marketplace.
The Peak District National Park Authority has launched a consultation for input into its next National Park Management Plan — an important chance to get active travel, rights of way and cycling high on its agenda of work.
A new Peak District Cycle Parking Map has just been added here on Peaks & Puddles, pin-pointing over 150 secure bike stand locations in and around the Peak District National Park.
Part of the Trans Pennine Trail in Stockport will be closed for approximately five weeks from Monday, 28th June 2021 for resurfacing works to take place. Update (28/06/21): This closure has now been postponed to mid-September 2021.
