Have your say at Garnock Valley Active Travel consultation event
Posted on 20 Feb 2019
North Ayrshire Council is hosting a second public consultation event on Tuesday 26 February to provide local people with the opportunity to have their say about potential upgrades to existing routes and proposed new active travel routes within the Garnock Valley and Lochshore.
The aim of the upgrades and new routes is to improve active travel and outdoor access within the local community by promoting walking, cycling and horse riding.
The proposals include the development of new or existing active travel paths within Kilbirnie, Dalry, Beith and adjacent villages, as well as new active travel paths through the Lochshore site.
A public consultation event was held in November 2018 to give members of the public the opportunity to come along and contribute to the development of the proposals.
The purpose of this second event is to gain feedback into the initial proposed routes for potential upgrade within the towns of Kilbirnie, Beith and Dalry.
On the night, Council officials would also like to hear your views on the proposed active travel paths as part of the redevelopment of Lochshore.
The drop-in event will be open to the public on from 5pm to 8pm at Garnock Community Campus, Beith Road, Glengarnock, KA14 3BF.
Councillor Alex Gallagher, Cabinet Member for Economy, said: “We are keen to receive feedback from our local people to identify any potential issues on existing paths and identify opportunities to improve them.
“I would urge local residents to come along to this consultation event and share their views to help promote active travel such as walking and cycling for everyone within the local community.”
