Sustrans Greenway Improvement Project – September 2023

Sustrans are the charity who aim to make it easier for everyone to walk, wheel and cycle. We are currently working with a range of local partners including Lancashire County Council to explore the feasibility of extending the Lune Valley Greenway to Wennington, and ultimately through to Kirkby Lonsdale. Caton-with-Littledale Parish Council are currently represented on the project steering group which ensures the views of local communities are heard.

As a precursor to the extension, Sustrans have been successful in securing grant funding awarded by the Department for Transport to undertake upgrades to the existing section of greenway between Caton and the eastern terminus of the path. The works aim to enhance the route user experience and ensure compliance with national guidance for accessibility. The designs will shortly be finalised and provided to the Parish Council for review. Further information will be published on the parish webpage in due course. Paper copies will also be available at the Victoria Institute.

It is likely that the works will begin in late September. There may be some disruption in access to the path during the works. Sustrans will publish further information in due course once dates have been confirmed with the appointed contractor
