A Chorleywood district councillor has criticised proposals that could see new cycle routes created between the village and Rickmansworth.
Under proposals put forward to Three Rivers District Council (TRDC), one route could see Common Road become a one-way street or the creation of a route on Chorleywood Common. A cycle lane could also be created on the A404.
Another proposal would see a cycle route along Stag Lane and Shepherds Lane, linking Stag Lane in Chorleywood with Mill End.
Conservative councillor Philip Hearn has opposed the plans, saying: “Cycling is not allowed on Chorleywood Common and any changes would seriously impact the look and feel of the Common.
“I really fear that if these schemes went ahead, Chorleywood would become more urbanised.”
A consultation will open at the end of the year.
A spokesperson for TRDC said: “The proposed Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan went before the Infrastructure, Housing and Economic Development Committee last month ahead of an upcoming public consultation. Details can be found at www.threerivers.gov.uk/meeting/infrastructure-housing-economic-development-committee-11-october-2022. More information on the project will be published after the public consultation ends.”
