A transport strategy for High Wycombe has been adopted, which aims to put the town among the best connected in the region.

Both the Transport Strategy and the Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan (LCWIP) for High Wycombe have been approved and adopted by Buckinghamshire Council, following a consultation.

The Transport Strategy sets out the main transport schemes which are planned over the next five, 10, 15 years and beyond in its bid to ensure all journeys are low emission. The LCWIP proposes new cycling, walking and wheeling infrastructure.

Steven Broadbent, Buckinghamshire Council’s cabinet member for transport, said: “We wanted to identify a range of transport measures that can support the planned growth in High Wycombe, making traveling more convenient and reliable – no matter the type of transport used.

“The new Transport Strategy and LCWIP outline how we propose to do this. The plans set out a balanced approach to future transport in High Wycombe and will support applications for Government funding and future investment in sustainable and active transport options.

“The plans have been shaped by extensive local engagement, including an eight-week public consultation in late 2022. This engagement helped us understand the key local travel challenges and opportunities and gauge views on the draft plans.

“Specific proposals identified in the plans will be subject to further development and public consultation as they are taken forward and as funding becomes available.”
