Dronfield to Unstone cycle path - public meeting

Published: 16 May 2018

Local residents are invited to a public meeting to discuss the latest plans for a cycle path proposed for north east Derbyshire.

Plans for a new shared cycle path along the B6057 linking Cemetery Road, in Dronfield with Cheetham Avenue, Unstone, were previously displayed at two public exhibitions earlier this year.

Proposals include widening the footpath on one side of the road to create a 1.5 mile stretch of path for pedestrians and cyclists and narrowing some sections of the road.

Following feedback from this initial consultation designs have now been modified. 

These revised plans will now be discussed at a public meeting to be held next Monday (21 May) at the Fred Hopkins Memorial Hall, Unstone, at 6.30pm.

Councillor Simon Spencer, our Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Infrastructure, said:

“We had some initial feedback that creating a shared cycle and pedestrian path could compromise safety.

“We are constrained to some degree with what we can do because the route includes walls, embankments and a railway bridge. But we have listened to local peoples’ comments, and based on these, amended the designs to work up a solution which we are keen to discuss further with the local community before any final decisions are made.”

Our officers will be on hand to explain the revised plans and address any concerns raised during consultation
