Stakeholder Group

An Active Travel Stakeholder Group has been set up to bring together representation from user groups whose focus is to enhance the counties walking, wheeling and cycling network.

The stakeholder group brings together both public and private organisations to support cycling, walking and wheeling as a natural choice for shorter journeys.

The group will have the opportunity to comment, using their expertise, on developing plans from proposal through to delivery to ensure that appropriate representation from user groups has been considered at each stage.

The group will meet quarterly, with additional meetings and sub-groups meeting more often online.

The first meeting of the group took place on 10 May 2023 and was chaired by Councillor Mike Rouse, Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport. The meeting brought together over 30 participants from various backgrounds, representing groups and organisations from across the county.

If you represent a group or organisation in the county and would like to get involved, let us know by emailing MIP@worcestershire.gov.uk
