Wye Valley Communities for Safe Cycling (WVCSC) is a collaboration of Wye Valley residents committed to the establishment of safe and sustainable routes
in the Lower Wye Valley.
Growing volumes of traffic in and around the Lower Wye Valley has made our local roads and lanes increasingly dangerous for the user, most notably vulnerable cyclists, walkers, runners and wheelchair users. The effect upon the local environment is also significant. Monitored vehicle-borne emissions have been measured at beyond acceptable levels, whilst the very character of our unique valley has changed due to the levels of traffic noise.
Wye Valley Communities for Safe Cycling was founded to encourage and support alternative transport links between the communities of the Lower Wye Valley. We have actively promoted and supported the Sustrans proposals to convert the disused Wye Valley railway line into a shared-use path between Chepstow, Tintern and Brockweir.
A planning application was approved by Forest of Dean District Council in 2010 but Monmouthshire County Council will also have to give planning permission, as the route crosses the border between both counties and countries.
Wye Valley Communities for Safe Cycling remain committed to supporting this and similar proposals to help make the Lower Wye Valley a safer and more sociable place to live. If you are interested in supporting us, please visit our website www.wyevalleycycling.org.uk to register your support and find out how you can help.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about the proposed route or our campaign, or if you want to help out or volunteer:
