A once in a lifetime opportunity for cyclists in Waverton & other parts of South East Chester?

The 6 parish councils that comprise SE Chester (Great Boughton, Huntington, Littleton , Christleton , Rowton and Waverton) are eligible to submit proposals for funds to improve active travel to the Community Infrastructure Levy.

This was created by the residential housing development in Huntington. A significant part of this £4.5 million fund is still available. The main purpose of the fund is to create new cycling and pedestrian facilities/infrastructure for residents that increase active travel as opposed to travel by car within this area.

Great Boughton, Huntington, Littleton, Christleton ,and Waverton Parish Councils have set up a group and worked closely with members of Cycling UK to produce an integrated, summary cycling infrastructure plan for SE Chester that focuses on improving the main cycling routes to schools , to work and to shops and to /from the centre of Chester. This plan is based on the cycling infrastructure  plans for each Parish Council and provides a much  improved cycle route network. As a result we have 16 potential improvement projects for discussion with CWAC Highways and local councillors in October, prior to submitting applications for funds.

Please go to Waverton Parish Council page on the website to review the detailed proposals
