People in Otley will get a first chance to have their say on a future walking and cycling plan for Otley tomorrow (Saturday). 

  • StreetVision2030 will be in the Market Place 
  • Their overall aim is to create a walking and cycling plan  
  • Tomorrow's event is the first step of the project 
  • They want to hear people's ideas and feedback 

Members of the StreetVision2030 project team – including representatives from Otley Town Council and their partners at Dutch mobility specialists Mobycon – will be on hand at Market Place’s Buttercross from 08.30 to 15.30 to speak to residents about their aspirations for the town over the next decade.

The event will allow residents to learn how their input will form the basis for the walking and cycling plan and offer the StreetVision2030 team a better understanding of the opportunities and challenges facing the wider community.

StreetVision2030 was launched in mid-January in response to last year’s declaration of a climate emergency by Otley Town Council.

It aims to develop a plan that supports and encourages more walking and cycling in the town.

As well as the opportunity to speak directly to the team, there will be interactive maps, information about how the team will work throughout the project, and activities for younger residents to reimagine their community.

Councillor Ray Georgeson, Project Lead for Otley Town Council, said:

“We know the Climate Emergency has to be a priority, and making it safer and easier for people to leave the car at home and walk or cycle for the short journey will make a significant impact on reducing carbon emissions, improving air quality and making us feel better and healthier.”
