Consultant to be engaged to examine design options and identify a possible solution for creation of a new cycle path to the north of Drem village
East Lothian Council has received the full requested amount of £30,000 from Sustrans 2022/23 funding programme.
This will provide the opportunity to engage an appropriate consultant to examine the design options and to identify a possible solution to meet the design standards and road safety to allow the creation of a new cycle path to the north of Drem village. A required condition attached to the funding award is to ‘provide evidence of meaningful engagement with different people/groups representing a variety of protected characteristics, including visually impaired people/groups in the design development through an Equality Impact Assessment’. It is hoped that a suitable consultant will be engaged as soon as possible following procurement and award.
