Active Travel in Liskeard

We want to make it easier and safer to walk and cycle in Liskeard, which is good for our health and the environment.

We know that communities are healthier where people can easily shop and get to school and work by bike or on foot. We want to give people more choices about how to travel and to help locals and visitors enjoy our town and the surrounding countryside.

Liskeard Town Council successfully bid to the Cornwall Council Town Centre Revitalisation Fund to fund a feasibility study into cycling, walking and bus improvements in Liskeard. The idea is to develop and consult on plans which can then be used to apply for further funding.

After a competitive tender, the cycling charity Sustrans was appointed to carry out the work. In consultation with local groups and councillors they have drawn up some draft plans for cycling and walking routes.

We now want your views on the plans, including which routes should be a priority.

We will be taking the plans out and about and you can find us:

• At the local food market in the Cattle Market events space 10am – 1pm on Saturday 13 November.
• At the Liskerrett Community Centre open day 10 – 11.30am and then in Fore Street 11.30am – 1pm on Saturday 20 November.

You can also input your views online via the Community Mapping Tool:

With this tool you will be able to identify, select and comment on:

We are working closely with the Looe Valley trails project, which includes a Liskeard loop for a multi-use trail, and you can read more about their plans here

As well as cycling and walking routes, the project also includes looking at options for a cycle hub or active travel hub in the town centre and how the new, longer buses can be better accommodated and linked to cycling and walking.
