Consultation to improve walking and cycling in the Valley

Surrey County Council is beginning a consultation on proposals to improve walking and cycling facilities in the northern part of the Blackwater Valley area.

The consultation is open now until Friday 31 July 2015. We are inviting the public and other organisations to complete a questionnaire online or at our exhibition in July to share their views on the scheme.
Full details of the consultation and exhibition can be found at:
The public exhibition displaying the proposals and the information panels currently available online will be held at Building A, Watchmoor Business Park, Riverside Way GU15 3YL on Thursday 2 July and Friday 3 July 2015, 09:30 – 16:30.

Please do have a look and let them know what you think.  We feel this is an important step forward to improve our walking and cycling in the area.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
