Putting the Plan into Action
The ROWIP is being implemented under four themes, each with a strategic aim and supporting the wider social objectives of the County Council including the aims of the LTP:
- Sustainable Transport - Strategic Aim to increase the use of the network for sustainable transport and utility trips
- Health and Well-being - Strategic Aim to make it easier for people to incorporate exercise into their daily lives and lead healthier lifestyles
- Rural Economy and Tourism - Strategic Aim to support local businesses and tourism through access improvements
- Social Issues - Strategic Aim to enable more people to enjoy walking and riding
There is also a separate strand of Core Tasks that will assist in the management of the network and access opportunities.
The Statement of Action within the ROWIP sets out our plans for implementing the ROWIP with targets and timescales for delivery. Whilst it is a requirement to prepare and publish a ROWIP, there is no statutory requirement, or specified funds to implement one. Improvement work is being implemented through existing budgets and by using other funding to translate the ROWIP to actions on the ground.
