Play your part in developing Drogheda & Ardee’s Walking and Cycling Strategies


Louth Local Authorities are calling on as many people as possible to get involved in developing walking and cycling strategies for Drogheda and Ardee.
As part of the Government’s Smarter Travel Initiative, Louth Local Authorities have taken up the challenge for Drogheda and Ardee to become Active Travel Towns.
To do this measures and supports will be put in place in order to facilitate more people to use sustainable and healthier forms of transport for more of their daily journeys.
These Strategies will then form a blueprint for a number of initiatives and projects in the coming years, and will enable both Councils to apply to draw down funding from the Government to implement such initiatives identified by the Strategies.
Consultants have been engaged to develop Walking & Cycling Strategies for the both Drogheda and Ardee. However, in order to gain more insight into the needs of those in and around the towns, the public are being asked to make submissions on what they would like to see.
Speaking on the public consultation Terry Savage, Senior Executive Planner with the Forward Planning Unit of Louth Local Authorities said:

“We would like to see as many people as possible give their opinions on walking and cycling strategies.
 “We are keen to hear what they think needs to be done. The success of the strategies will ultimately be down to teamwork between Louth Local Authorities, the consultants and equally important, the public who make submissions.”
