Notice of Study Commencement

About the plan..

Grey County is developing a long-term, comprehensive Cycling and Trails Master Plan to guide future planning and decision-making to enhance cycling and trail opportunities within the County and its local municipalities. The plan is meant to be used by County staff, decision makers and community partners to support and provide direction for future investments in cycling and active transportation infrastructure network by identifying a network and programs that supports commuter cycling, cycle tourism and recreational trail use.

The County has retained WSP Canada Group Limited (WSP) to support the development of the Cycling and Trails Master Plan. The plan will incorporate previous work completed by the County and its partners including on-going projects such as the Recreational Trails Strategy. The plan will be developed using a three-phased process and is expected to be completed by Spring 2019.
Cycling plan

Over the course of the study, the County will consult and engage with members of the public, businesses, stakeholders and local municipal staff to help inform the development of the Cycling and Trails Master Plan. Your input will be used to shape the outcomes, strategies and the recommended cycling and trails network contained in the plan
