Residents invited to share views on new walking and cycling route proposal

Residents are being invited to have their say on a proposal for improvements to the local walking, wheeling and cycling network between Kinmel Bay and Rhyl.

Denbighshire County Council, in conjunction with Conwy County Borough Council, are working with Sustrans Cymru to make local active travel – a term used for journeys with a purpose – in the area accessible, more enjoyable and safer for the whole community, encouraging more journeys to be taken on foot or bicycle instead of by car.

A new traffic-free route is being designed: A shared use path which will offer a more direct alternative between the communities of Kinmel Bay and Rhyl. The route will be 1.5km long, reaching from Owain Glyndwr residential area through the fields up to the railway bridge, crossing over the River Clwyd and passing by the Marine Lake.

Sustrans is seeking feedback from the people that live, work and travel in the area who could benefit from the proposals, on what they would like to see along the new routes in the future.

Residents can share their ideas and feedback by visiting the project website hosted by Sustrans: https://sustrans.info/ActiveTravelRiverClwydBridge

The survey will be available online until 15 January 2023.

Paper versions of the consultation can be obtained by contacting Sustrans Cymru via email: Rhyl@sustrans.org.uk or by writing to them at Sustrans Cymru, One Canal Parade, Dumballs Road, CF10 5BF Cardiff.
