Cycling: Bournemouth

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 12 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what support her Department provides to assist the development of cycle networks in Bournemouth. (209677)

The responsibility for the development of cycle networks in Bournemouth rests with the local council, as the local highway authority.

The Department for Transport encourages all local authorities to develop a cycling strategy as part of their Local Transport Plan (LTP). I understand Bournemouth borough council produce a joint LTP with the borough of Poole council. DfT has awarded their joint LTP the following block grant for local transport for the next three years from which cycle projects could be funded.
