Views sought on walking and cycling route to Blythe Valley Park

Solihull Editorial 10th Jul, 2022   0

RESIDENTS are being called on to have their say on new walking and cycling routes to Blythe Valley Park.

Solihull Council say the Active Travel Routes will connect Blythe Valley Park with Monkspath and Dorridge.

As well as the online consultation, there are two opportunities to meet staff face to face in July to find out more about the schemes.

Firstly at Monkspath Junior and Infant School’s Blue Room on Farmhouse Way in Shirley on July 12 from 5pm until 7pm.

Then at St James’ Church Hall on Manor Road on Thursday, July 14, from 5pm until 7pm.

Councillor Ken Hawkins, cabinet member for Environment and Highways, said: “As a Council we are constantly looking for more ways to help and support people to leave their cars at home and travel by foot, bike and public transport. It’s good for our health, for our air quality and will help us achieve our net zero carbon targets as a borough.

“It’s also good for your pockets – if you can make some changes in your travel habits you will save money too.

“We want to make sure we get the new active travel routes right so please get involved with the consultation.”

The consultation is open until August 5.
