North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, EQUANS, have been awarded £346,000 funding from the Department for Transport to support the delivery of high-quality cycle and pedestrian infrastructure near Grimsby Town Centre.
The route identified through the council’s Cycling and Walking Improvement Plan, includes Ainslie Street, Park Avenue, Park Drive and surrounding areas.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “We’re happy to have secured this funding from the Department for Transport as this means we can improve our cycle and pedestrian routes in the town centre.”
The council is now seeking the views of residents and cyclists using the route to support the ongoing scheme design, followed by further engagement on the draft design.
In providing feedback, people will be helping transport officers to develop sustainable transport initiatives along the route, which will help directly tackle issues raised by local people.
The survey is being hosted by engagement specialists, Commonplace, who use a map-based engagement platform for local people to pin and comment on key areas they want to provide feedback on. All feedback gained will support the development of a heat map along the corridor to identify potential areas for future improvements.

The survey will be live from Tuesday 7 June. The deadline for feedback is Friday 24 June.
