Have your say on Otley Road cycle way

After Harrogate Borough Council announced plans to improve transport infrastructure, it's time for you to have your say on potential changes.

After Harrogate Borough Council announced plans to improve transport infrastructure in Harrogate, it's time for you to have your say! Improvements include smart traffic lights, improvements to the junction of Harlow Moor Road and Otley Road, a new off-road cycle route on Otley Road and improved pedestrian crossings. Part of the cycle route intends to use existing verges that are designated as Stray land, so a formal public consultation is required - that's where you come in! [caption id="attachment_1838" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The Stray Act means Harrogate Borough Council need your views on three different land exchanges.[/caption] The Stray Act requires that any land that is used must be exchanged for land that is equivalent in size and no more than 100 metres from the Stray. Therefore, the council is asking for views on three options for exchange land that have been identified: land at Wetherby Road (rear of the hospital), St James Drive verges or Arthurs Avenue verges. There’s information about the project on the Harrogate Borough Council website where you can also have your say and add your comments on the proposals!
