Cycling and walking in the Strettons
Residents in the Strettons and surrounding villages and hamlets have been invited to give feedback on the Shropshire draft Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP). The draft Plan puts forward proposals for each of the seven Shropshire market towns. You can read the full reports for each town, together with the Guiding Principles and an overall summary.
To collect feedback from local residents, staff from the Shropshire Council Active travel team and their appointed consultants visited the Strettons on the afternoon of Thursday 11th May. There were also two online webinars (18th and 25th May) plus the opportunity to complete an online feedback form.
Stretton Climate Care ran two relevant events – a workshop to draw up with our local community a response to the draft Plan and a presentation on 20’s Plenty from David Currant of SSCA/Ludlow21.

Having listened to and discussed with those present at the events, our Secretary, Mike Hymas, who, many years ago, had responsibility for highways and transport issues in Shropshire finalised the Local Cycling and Walking Plan Response Stretton Climate Care 05 06 2023.
20’s Plenty. This national campaign proposes the adoption of 20 miles per hour on most roads within the town. If this were to be introduced, it would result in a reduction in casualties and in particular result in most casualties being only minor injuries. It would also encourage cycling and walking as the fear of becoming a casualty will be reduced.
