– Joan Dixon, Derbyshire County Council
This is fantastic news for Derbyshire.
Boosting our local economy is at the top of our agenda so anything we can do to improve tourism and open up our county’s beautiful countryside to attract new visitors is most welcome.
We will consult fully with local people on each of the routes and we will need to gain planning permission before any work can start.
Government funding has been awarded to the the Birmingham Cycle Revolution, and also cycle networks in the Peak District, to help improve cycling in those areas.
