SECTION B - Project Description
B1. Type of Support
This Expression of Interest is for:
Technical Support to prepare an LCWIP.
Technical Support to update existing walking and cycling plans and programmes.
B2. Total number of support days requested: 80 B3. Project Summary
Please outline why you require technical support and how it will help you prepare a
LCWIP or update existing walking and cycling plans and programmes.
In 2014 Surrey consulted on and published the Surrey Cycling Strategy. Recognising
that a one size fits all approach will not work, a key objective was to develop local
cycling plans for each of Surrey’s 11 districts and boroughs to ensure that solutions
are tailored to local needs. Following this we developed local cycling plans for six of
the 11 Surrey district and boroughs. These cover Elmbridge, Epsom and
Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead,
The local cycling plans identify long-term proposals for a comprehensive cycle
network identifying routes to the places people want to get to. As Surrey has many
rural areas the network looks to connect towns and villages as well as providing
infrastructure for those making journeys by bike around town centres.
The local cycling plans also cover promoting cycling, cycle training, safety
campaigns and data on levels of cycling and casualties. In the plans we have
developed so far we have liaised with local planning authorities and other
We have also started to develop a walking strategy but due to recent funding cuts
and the loss of associated resources it has never been completed. Some pro-
walking policies have been devised such as ‘Safety Outside Schools.’ We have also
carried out several town centre access studies which look particularly to improve
access for those with disability impairments. We are working with Living Streets to
promote walking but have no over-arching strategy.
We are seeking assistance with the preparation of the remaining five local cycling
plans and guidance on developing a walking strategy.
If we are successful we plan to use the tools and training from the LCWIP to help us
update the six existing local cycling plans. We can apply the learnings to further
refine the existing plans and incorporate the walking into them.
Our resources are stretched and having up to 80 days to develop these plans would
ensure they are well thought out, strategic and in a strong position to include in
future transport planning.
We are also keen to benefit from the technical expertise offered and understand the
LCWIP recommended approach. We want to increase understanding of walking and
cycling schemes to be more succesful with future DfT bids. Well-developed plans will
help us make the case for future investment and identify short, medium and long-
Using the Welsh Active Travel Design Guide we have also been updating our own
Surrey standards. If we are successful in this bid we would seek advice on technical
guidance for infrastructure as well as support on how to include planning for walking.
The technical support on offer will enable us to develop comprehensive plans to take
to the relevant Local Committee to be approved. Once adopted they will be
published on the popular Travel SMART website and be used to inform cycling and
walking programmes going forward as covered in C2. B4. Geographical Area:
Please provide a map and a short description of the area that will be covered by the
LCWIP. This section should include information about the population covered,
current levels of cycling and walking and the number of short trips.
This expression of interest is to create LCWIPs for the five areas which don’t
currently have a local cycling plan. These are Runnymede, Spelthorne, Surrey
Heath, Tandridge and Woking and the planning authorities are supportive of seeing
LCWIPs developed in their areas.
This bid is also to develop our countywide walking strategy and furnish us with the
tools and information to update plans with strategic walking infrastructure.
A map of the areas is attached as Annex A
and census data on each area is in the
table below. They are five very different areas with their own challenges and
opportunities. The Propensity to Cycle Tool shows that under the government target
scenario there is the greatest scope to increase cycling in Spelthorne, eastern
Runnymede, parts of Surrey Heath and the Woking suburbs. Runnymede
has some good cycle infrastructure but with gaps in the network.
Planned improvement works at Runnymede roundabout will remove some current
gaps in the network. Within Runnymede, Egham has recently benefitted from a
£1.775m Sustainable Transport Package which was completed in January 2017.
This has included new sections of shared cycle footway, toucan crossings and raised
tables at junctions.
is very urban and many routes are severed by trunk and busy roads,
railway lines and reservoirs. Staines has been awarded funding from Enterprise M3
LEP together with a substantial contribution from Heathrow Airport for Phase 1 of a
Sustainable Transport Package. This will improve walking and cycling facilities for
travel between Staines town centre railway station and Heathrow and nearby
businesses. Surrey Heath
also has very low levels of cycling. Several major schemes around
Camberley and the Blackwater Valley will hopefully lead to improved cycle routes to
the town centre and business parks in the west of the Borough. Camberley is also
planning significant public realm improvements within the town centre.
is very rural and has the lowest levels of bike ownership and utility
cycling in Surrey (according to our 2015 monitoring survey mentioned below).
National Cycle Route 21 goes through the district but doesn’t connect to any towns.
The Oxted regeneration provides opportunities for walking and public realm
was previously a Cycle Town (2008-11) so has a well established and well
signed network. The borough council are keen to develop this further and more can
be done to connect surrounding villages into the town centre. A business case
submission to the EM3 LEP is planned for early 2018.

Surrey Heath 88,067
In 2015 we carried out our own interview-based monitoring survey.
This was to
provide survey data identifying the proportion of Surrey cycling, journey purpose,
locality and demographic characteristics, and satisfaction with provision for cycling.
We also wanted to find out current travel patterns and what influences journey
choice as well as what would get people cycling who aren’t already. The findings
have been used to support schemes and inform business cases.
We learnt that 39% of Surrey residents are lapsed cyclists, i.e. don’t cycle now but
have done in the past. This suggests there is significant potential to encourage
these to cycle again. We also found the most influential aspect in encouraging non-
cyclists to start cycling is cycle paths separated from traffic. Most who said they
would consider cycling again was to increase their health and fitness.
Levels of bike ownership are higher than the national average
in Surrey and many
people have cycled at some point in the past 12 months (see table below). However
leisure cycling is the most popular form of cycling with very low numbers chosing to
commute by bike.
With low levels of utility cycling but high congestion, bike ownership and a desire to
be fit and healthy there is significant scope to increase levels of cycling with good
quality cycle infrastructure.

SECTION C – Strategic Narrative
C1. The Strategic Case
Please outline your authority’s ambition in terms of walking and cycling. In this
section you should explain how producing a LCWIP will support your wider local
policy aims as well as the objectives set out in the Cycling and Walking Investment
Following the success of the 2012 Olympic Games Cycling Road Events, Surrey has
been on the ‘map’ as a destination for cycling. Every weekend hundreds of people
head to the Surrey Hills to cycle through our beautiful countryside. But a true
Olympic legacy would see every child in Surrey learning to ride a bike and being able
to cycle safely to school. It would mean that many more of our residents cycle for
transport and leisure, reducing congestion and reliance on cars and reaping the
considerable health and economic benefits this brings. And it would mean that
people without access to a car can travel safely and affordably around the county.
The Surrey Cycling Strategy was developed in 2014 and forms part of the Surrey
Transport Plan. It covers cycling as a means of transport – i.e. for journeys to work
and school, and business and shopping trips. It also covers cycling for leisure and as
a sport. The strategy sets out our aim for cycling in Surrey for the period to 2026 and
our approach to achieving the aim.
In the UK and internationally, cycling is increasingly seen as an integral element of
solutions to support economic growth, tackle congestion and poor air quality,
improve personal mobility and address health problems associated with obesity and
lack of physical activity. We recognise the great potential to capture these benefits in
Surrey. We also recognise the urgent need to tackle an increasing number of cyclist
Therefore our aim is: more people in Surrey cycling, more safely.
The success of the British cycling team in the Tour de France and during the 2012
Olympic Games, where part of the route passed through Surrey, has generated a
noticeable increase in the popularity of cycling, in particular sports cycling. This
provides a unique opportunity to build on this interest and enthusiasm to create a
lasting Olympic legacy as well as a new challenge to manage the impact of large
numbers of people and events in the more popular locations.
Surrey has already achieved some significant success in encouraging cycling in key
locations. The Cycle Woking initiative, part of the Department for Transport’s Cycle
Demonstration Towns initiative, demonstrated the potential for a comprehensive
approach – including joined up cycle routes, parking at key destinations and well
signed networks indicating travel times. This was coupled with measures to promote
cycling in schools and businesses as well as high profile events. This resulted in an
overall 27% increase in cycling rates, importantly without an increase in casualty
rates. Subsequently the County Council secured £18m from the Department for
Transport’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund which included around £2.5m for cycle
infrastructure and promotion.
The Cycling Strategy sets out how we plan to build on these successes. To achieve
real impact, our approach needs to be as inclusive as possible, ensuring that groups
including children, young people, older people and people with disabilities are able to
benefit from opportunities to cycle safely. We also need to ensure that local needs
and issues are considered and addressed. Money is scarce and we need to focus
our resources on interventions that deliver greatest benefit, working in partnership
with the many organisations in Surrey that have an interest in cycling.
Our Cycling Strategy recognises that a one size fits all approach will not work: the
issues in rural Surrey are not the same as those in the urban fringe. For that reason,
we are developing local plans for each of the Surrey boroughs and districts, to
ensure that solutions are tailored to local needs.
The Surrey Transport Plan also acknowledges the importance of walking as a means
of travel and identifies the need for a walking strategy. If we are successful in this
submission we would look integrate our walking programmes into a comprehensive
The LCWIPs will support wider local policy aims:
The vision of the Surrey Transport Plan is to help people to meet their transport and
travel needs effectively, reliably, safely and sustainably within Surrey; in order to
promote economic vibrancy, protect and enhance the environment and improve the
quality of life.
Based on this vision there numerous strategies to help achieve this of which the
Cycling Strategy is one and the Walking Strategy will form another.
Air Quality Strategy
Air quality is key to the health of humans and ecosystems. Surrey's borough and
district councils have a statutory duty to identify Air Quality Management Areas
where current or future air quality is unlikely to meet the Government's national air
quality objectives. There are twenty four such areas in Surrey, and the main source
of the pollutants in these areas is road traffic.
A key objective of this strategy is to incorporate physical transport measures in the
borough or district council’s Infrastructure Delivery Plan and support smarter travel
choices, for future implementation as and when funding becomes available, in order
to reduce air pollution from road traffic sources.
Climate Change Strategy
The climate change strategy of the Surrey Transport Plan sets out our ambition to
reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from transport in Surrey and to manage
risks posed to the transport network arising from climate change. Our aim is to
develop a lower carbon transport system that is more resilient to future climate risks
and higher energy prices. The LCWIP will support this as an objective of the
strategy is to increase the proportion of travel by sustainable low carbon modes. Congestion Strategy
Surrey’s highway network is extremely busy and travel demand is increasing as a
result of additional development, both within and outside the county’s boundaries.
Given that providing additional capacity is no longer considered to be the best
solution a mix of solutions are required involving a wide range of tools including
promoting alternatives to car travel. The LCWIP will identify the infrastructure
needed to provide viable alternatives to car travel in some of the most congested
core zones. Passenger Transport Strategy
The local bus network is an integral part of the transport system in Surrey. Buses
provide access to schools and colleges for young people, to shopping and leisure
facilities at the evenings and weekends and are a vital lifeline for older people who
wish to maintain their independence.
Walking facilities are key to supporting bus travel as very few people have a bus stop
immediately at the start and end of their journey. The LCWIP will encourage
combining walking with bus travel to extend where people can travel to sustainbly. Travel Planning Strategy
Travel planning has an important role to play in ensuring effective, reliable, safe and
sustainable travel behaviour is embedded in the culture of organisations and schools
in Surrey. This will encourage active travel supporting the LCWIP and highlight
where walking and cycling facilities are poor. Rail strategy
The county has a generally comprehensive rail network and a large number of rail
stations, however many services are at capacity and suffer from peak time
There is also considerable opportunity in Surrey to encourage more cycling and
walking to the rail stations. We monitor the levels of cycle parking
at various rail
stations and while it is on the increase it is still very low relative to the numbers using
the station. In our 2015 monitoring survey we asked residents how they generally
travelled to the rail station. Out of 1524 asked 57% walked and 4.7% cycled. Rights of Way Improvement Plan
There are 3,444km of rights of way in Surrey and they are an invaluable asset. The
revised Rights of Way Improvement Plan (ROWIP) considers the status of the
network, the needs of its users, and investigates how the network could be improved
to reflect changing patterns of use and the changing requirements placed upon it.
With so many busy roads in Surrey the ROW network can provide attractive walking
and cycling routes as well as convient short-cuts. Drive SMART Road Safety & Anti-Social Driving Strategy
Although Surrey has been relatively successful in reducing casualties in recent
years, speeding and anti-social driving have remained a prime concern of Surrey’s
residents and discourages walking and cycling. Therefore care has been taken in the
development of this strategy to build upon the successful delivery of the recent Drive
SMART initiative to tackle anti-social driving. Public Health framework and the Heath and Wellbeing Board
The Surrey Health and Wellbeing Board is a group of NHS commissioners, public
health, social care, local councillors, Surrey Police, borough and district council and
public representatives that work together to improve the health and wellbeing of
people in Surrey. It is about bringing people together, influencing and identifying
areas of work that can be done better together. Getting active is a key element of
health and wellbeing and therefore we have been collaborating with our public health
colleagues to promote active travel.
Please describe how the LCWIP will integrate your existing and future local transport
and planning policies and strategies.
All of the LCWIPs will form an important element of the over-arching Cycling
Strategy and future Walking Strategy which sit under the Surrey Transport Plan
(LTP3). By having comprehensive walking and cycling plans we can ensure that
these modes are considered in all transport planning and policies going forward.
Infrastructure plans from these documents feed into the Local Transport Strategies
(LTS’s) for each district and borough. These are statutory documents that identify
issues on the highway network and link with borough and district local plans. They
are used to form packages of schemes and projects and are the starting point for
bids for funding. As such any LCWIPs will be fully integrated into the LTS’s to
provide a comprehensive schedule for each borough/district for the entire county and
enable us to have a prioritised programme for future investment.
C3. Current Walking and Cycling Policies, Strategies and Programmes
Please provide information on existing cycling and walking policies, strategies and
Cycling and walking feature heavily in the Surrey Transport Plan
Plan 3). The plan sets out the council’s objectives to help people meet their
transport and travel needs effectively, reliably, safely and sustainably within Surrey,
in order to promote economic vibrancy, protect and enhance the environment,
improve the quality of life, and reduce carbon emissions.
To address current transport issues and support growth set out in Local Plans each
district or borough has a Local Transport Strategy (LTS) and forward programme.
One of the key objectives of the transport strategies are to encourage more
sustainable travel and improve air quality. Walking and cycling schemes are listed in
the forward programme which provide an evidence base for future funding bids. The
forward programme helps the county council and borough/district councils to identify
strategic infrastructure delivery priorities and guide future investment from a range of
The County Council has developed the Surrey Cycling Strategy
to support the
development of cycling as a means of transport and to secure economic, health and
environmental benefits for Surrey. The Strategy also sets out plans to address the
increase in cycle casualty rates and the local impacts of the increase in sports
cycling and cycling events.
The Strategy’s aim is to get more people in Surrey cycling, more safely and it has a
series of objectives to support the achievement of this aim:
O1: Surrey County Council and its partners will work together to deliver
improvements for cycling.
O2: Surrey Local/Joint Committees will oversee development of Local Cycling Plans
that reflect local priorities and issues.
O3: We will develop a comprehensive training offer and ensure that cost is not a
barrier to learning to ride a bike.
O4: We will work with partners to ensure that Surrey’s economy benefits from more
people cycling for every day journeys and from Surrey’s role as a centre for cycling.
O5: We will seek funding to improve infrastructure to make cycling a safe, attractive
and convenient mode of transport for people of all ages and levels of confidence.
O6: We will encourage cycling as an inclusive, healthy and affordable means of
travel through the provision of information, promotional activities and practical
O7: We will work with Surrey Police and other partners to improve cycle safety and
O8: We will promote and encourage cycling for health and leisure.
O9: We will encourage the provision of off road cycle trails and activities while
managing the impacts on Surrey’s countryside.
O10: We will take action to minimise the impacts of high levels of sport cycling on
some roads and communities in Surrey.
O11: We will lobby central government to ensure that regulations governing events
on the highway are fit for purpose.
O12: We will support major cycle sport events which inspire participation and bring
economic benefit, while minimising impact on affected communities.
O13: We will use an evidence and data led approach to inform future development of
the strategy. Current walking and cycling programmes:
Surrey County Council currently sponsor a Research Engineer undertaking a
doctorate in the field of cycling at the University of Surrey (until January 2018). Their
research focus is on understanding area level factors that make specific
demographics more (or less) likely to cycle to work. Findings are expected to inform
elements of the Cycling Strategy, specifically around what type of intervention may
be most appropriate for increasing cycling within each demographic in Surrey.
Surrey County Council provides National Standard cycle training to around 15,000
Surrey residents each year. As well as Bikeability in schools, customised cycle
training is available for all ages and abilities.
We have benefitted from the recent Access Fund through a partnership with Living
Streets. Our dedicated Living Streets officer works with schools, businesses and
communities countywide on programmes encouraging walking as a form of
travel. They are also soon to be expanding their offer to include cycling through the
Cycling UK network. By joining the network groups will have access to inspiration
and practical support to promote and encourage cycling.
Travel SMART is a promotion and engagement programme designed to provide
people with more travel choices. While engagement activities have had to cease due
to lack of funding, the website continues with relevant information and a journey
planner to encourage sustainable choices.
Surrey Wheels for All is a charity (funding bodies include Surrey County Council)
offering inclusive cycling sessions on adaptive bikes. They deliver sessions in
various locations around Surrey.
Drive SMART is a partnership between Surrey Police and Surrey County Council
(including Surrey Fire and Rescue Service), with the aim of reducing road casualties,
tackling anti-social road behaviour and making the county's roads safer and less
stressful for everyone. It includes cycle safety campaigns.
Active Surrey is the County's Sports Partnership, developing sport and physical
activity. Amongst other aims, Active Surrey seek to increase participation and
develop clubs. We continue to work with Active Surrey to promote active travel.
We also carry out various monitoring cycling and walking across Surrey. This
includes manual and automatic cycle counts, cyclist casualties, cycle parking at
selected railway stations,
and have also undertaken an interview survey of a cross-
section of the Surrey population exploring the propensity to cycle. The 2011 census
collected journey to work information including walking and cycling. The Surrey-i
shows this data broken down for local areas in Surrey.
Further to the behaviour change programmes above we are also working on a
number of Sustainable Transport Packages
(STPs) and major schemes with funding
from the Local Enterprise Partnerships. The schemes aim to make it easier to travel
by bus, by bike and on foot. Schemes include making improvements to, and creation
of, cycle lanes and footways, making bus stops better and more accessible, and
improved access to railway stations.
Currently STPs/transport schemes with benefits for walking and cycling that are
ongoing, nearing completion or planned to start shortly (subject to a successful

SECTION D – Management Case
Please provide details of those who will be responsible for delivering the LCWIP as
well as the amount of local resources (in officer days) that will be made available.
Becky Willson is the Surrey County Council Cycling Officer and will be supported by
a Graduate Transport Planner. Between them, they will also be available for 80 days
over the same period.
Paul Fishwick is the Programme Manager (LTS and Major Schemes) and located
within the Transport Policy Team.
provides details of how key decisions will be made including information
about the relevant governance and reporting processes.
For each of the areas which currently do not have any form of LCWIP we will agree a
local approval process with the Local/Joint Committees. This has been done with
the existing local cycling plans and has varied according to the area and level of
involvement the Local Committee has wanted to have.
However for all of them it has involved the following steps:
- Regularly meeting with relevant local councillors or Task Groups to discuss issues
and talk through the plans and update when necessary.
- Meeting with interested local residents and cycle forums to understand issues in
the area and get their ideas for the network.
- Cycling site visits to map and review the existing cycle infrastructure and identify
missing links in the network as well as minor improvements which could be quick-
wins to be completed by Highways.
- Identifying strategic links for cycle improvements and producing a draft webpage as
a one-stop-shop for all cycle plan areas in the district or borough.
- Taking the plan to the Local/Joint Committee for members to agree and approve
the publication of the information online on the Travel SMART website.
- Sharing the webpage which includes the cycle infrastructure map (Annex C)
shows existing and suggested routes. The webpage includes an online form where
residents can leave their comments or suggest new ideas. This means we are
constantly consulting on the plans and seeking feedback. These ideas are then
regularly fed back to the Local/Joint Committee Task Groups to review as necessary
and in conjunction with the Local Transport Strategy.
D3. Management Case - Stakeholder Management
Please outline the key stakeholders that will be engaged with during the LCWIP
process and indicate if the Local Enterprise Partnership is supportive.
The appended flowchart (Annex D)
shows the end to end process we take when
producing and reviewing a Local Transport Strategy. This is done in consultation
with the relevant borough/district. The end to end process also lists all the
stakeholders involved in the development of the strategy and all the sources that
information is drawn from.
The development of the cycling plans and LCWIPs will mirror this approach. The
district and borough councils are the key consultees within this process and we want
them to have ownership of their plans.
In the development of the existing cycling plans we have also worked closely with
local members, the area highway teams, planning officers, transport policy transport
studies and road safety.
External groups we have engaged with includes any local cycle forums and/or
bicycle user groups, Sustrans, Cycling UK, Surrey Wheels for All and neighbouring
